Domaine Saint Cyriaque

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2000

2000 vintage. Briar, earth and slight brickish nose. Color as if bottled yesterday. Light-medium/medium body. Throwing some serious sed. Decanted for two hours and a little watery on the concentration but plenty of fruit. I suspect this would have fared better with a six hour decant/lounge sesh. Also follows on the heels of last week’s tasting of the massive and undying 1990 vintage so there’s that. — 2 days ago

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

Earth, wood, tobacco, sun dried tomato, oak, coffee, pencil lead and lovely balance to top it off. True to type! I’m quite surprised, since this used to be stubborn years ago, and I was wondering if it had enough substance to go the distance. It does. — 10 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

Pop and pour. Jammier and riper than every other vintage I've had. On the nose: jammy red fruit, a hint of leather, but the jam overpowers everything else. On the palate: sweet tobacco, soft spice, oodles of blackberry and blueberry jam; good acidity, soft, finely grained tannin on the finish. Solid, but not my favorite vintage. — 16 days ago

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend

Black currant and plum amidst loamy earth and wet espresso grounds, light black peppering and river rock. Violets. Young! Grainy tannins, dried lavender and violet, dried savory, cedar, maduro tobacco, bing cherries, black cherry skin, and underripe blackberries and black currants. Do yourself a favor and age this vintage.

Pierre Gonon

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2019

A buddy of mine and I dropped into one of my favorite little cafes in Omaha to get a bite and share a bottle. We grabbed a table and I scampered off to select something from the wall. As I walked over to the Rhone section, I began to scan the labels and about fell over when I saw three bottles of Gonon low-key just chillin…priced under $70. At this point, there was no question what we would be drinking tonight.

Popped and poured; no formal notes. I fully knew this was going to be somewhat considered infanticide but how was I going to pass this opportunity up? The nose is classic Northern Rhone with olives, black pepper, bacon fat and gorgeous blue and red fruits. The tannins are medium+; the acid matches. And the texture? Well, she thiccc but there is a sexy confidence that is enormously becoming. Finish is long and super satisfying. Fun to try young but I expect this to be a very lovely bottle for many years to come. Drink now with some patience (and an open mind) or through 2034 with ease. Oh…and you best believe we took the other two bottles home with us.

Still plenty of tannins. Full of flavour and nose, even if it’s supposedly past it’s drinking window. Demi-size. — 8 days ago
