Finally hit the jackpot! Third and fourth bottles with clan 11/30/19 as gathering breaks off with half leaving. What a perfect match to real fois gras from Wilson. Everyone agrees and some found out belatedly a little goes a long way. Four more to go and also found another 75 Sauternes. Rated with leftover second bottle and yes each bottle different. Third bottle least oxidized and complex and in balance. — 15 days ago

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice surprise from Margaux, Bordeaux.
Dark brown in color with a wide brick rim.
Great complexity on the nose with blueberries, black currants, potpourri, raspberries, earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, green vegetables, vinaigrette, black tea, mashrooms, forest floor, smoke, tobacco leaf, spices and graphite.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with blueberries, dried fruits, wood, cloves, forest floor, tobacco leaf, spices, black pepper, earth, black tea, vinaigrette, mushrooms, wet leaves, herbs and graphite.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.
What a great experience this is. This 36 Year old, Cabernet based Bordeaux, is drinking very nicely now. Showing great complexity on both the nose and palate, with a soft mouthfeel. Resembles a 40 year old Barolo.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Took 90 minutes to peak.
Not from a great vintage, but it is still holding great.
I paired it with good friends, and a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
I can't say what the alcohol level is, but it feels like 12.5%

Great wine to celebrate a last day at work. Pairs well with grilled and salty foods. — 5 years ago
3.0. Slightly flat nose, and even after breathing a slightly flat taste. Not much special about this 2016 Bordeaux. — a month ago
