Dead ringer for a juicy high toned 1er Burg pretty much. — 6 days ago

Château Calon-Ségur

On the palate flavors of blackberry and plum with notes of tobacco, espresso and earthy herbs. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, cedar and mineral spice. Very nice! — 5 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Those classic Leoville-Barton feminine stylings. Light/light-medium body. Delicate and soft but with enough concentration to do the usual LB dance...gliding along for decades with almost imperceptible drop off/loss. There are going to be a bunch of WS readers that pick this up and find themselves disappointed since it never plays the heavy and expected. Embrace the subtle side of life. — 9 days ago

Le Ban Saint-Aubin Pinot Noir 2014

9.4

Have not had since 2017! Knockout nose of mid season cherry fruit with lipstick like intensity. Superb spice and complexity. Really layered and wild but also restrained. Lovely earthy sous bois. It smells so authentic. Just an awesome nose. 9.4. Palate is awesome. Ripe and super juicy with awesome, sappy curly and wonderful freshness and purity. A knockout. Just terrific balance and such unreal fruit. Brilliant showing. Long and precise. This will open more. — 13 days ago

Château Canon-la-Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Located on the outskirts of the medieval town of Saint-Emilion, at the southern foot of the slope. A blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cab Franc &10% Cab Sauv, aged in 60% new oak, deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruit with cedar & spice. On the palate flavors of ripe dark berry fruits, cacao, tobacco and espresso notes. Well balanced, perfect tannins, a joy to drink, starting to open but cellaring will only add to a better tasting experience! — 6 days ago

Verget

"Vigne de Saint-Claude" Saint-Véran Chardonnay 2014

Very much like a new world Chardonnay with that generous Macon nature. In a blind tasting I could easily pick this as Australian and be wrong. Peachy notes with lemon. Touch of pineapple juice. Vines are apparently 50 years of age and the wine sees 20% new oak. Drinks to its price point. — 9 days ago

Domaine Robert Chevillon

Les Saint-Georges Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Les Saint Georges has always basically been considered the NSG Grand Cru, if there was one, and such prestige was more than evident with this bottle. It’s deep, intense and alluringly complex with a fantastic balance of fruit and earth expression. It’s bouquet is gorgeous as aromas of rose petals, morello cherries and forest floor leap out of the glass. It has a fantastic texture and mouthfeel and it just wraps around the palate in the best way. The finish is tremendously persistent with silky tannins and great energy. Fantastic bottle. Drink more Chevillon! — 7 days ago

Château Fleur Cardinale

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. World-class nose of panini sando bread/grilled pain au levain, lavender, molasses, bruised plum and wine-country kitchen. Dark as a moonless night. Medium-heavy/heavy body with a brooding, hide-and-seek, mid-palate presence. Slightly spicy finish. Needs a half-decade to come grooving up slowly. Steel yourself to treat this with more patience than most but not as much as some. If opening soon, decant for at least two hours. — 8 days ago
