Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

The powerful and dense l’Evangile 2015 is according to some experts the last vintage of the classic style of the chateau. I have no experience with more recent vintages, all I can determine is this wine is wonderful. Fairly fragrant. The palate is voluptuous with a creaminess and melted tannins. Ripe fruits, baking spices, black truffle, olives, peppercorns, rock salt, sweet tobacco, noble wood, chocolate, roasted coffee beans. So opulent and so delicious. — 8 days ago

Clos Fourtet

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc, aged for 16 months in 60% new French oak. Deep Ruby, purple edges, with aromas of black berry fruits, cedar and meaty smoky notes. On the palate flavors of baked plums and black currants with cacao and tobacco spice, on a well balanced frame. Fine dry tannins, long finish ending with fruit, earthy spice and cedar character. Nice! — 3 days ago

Château Larcis Ducasse

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Stunning nose. Might be the most alluring part of the wine. Classic Bordeaux. Lacking a bit of weight through the finish. — 2 days ago

Pétrus

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

This is really special. Dark plummy fruit with a hint of the wild- some black pepper, dried herbs and bloodiness but gorgeous finesse. Floral notes of violets scent a really gorgeous and intense midpalate. What a crazy bottle. Wonderful — 4 days ago

Château La Fleur-Pétrus

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

More medium than full bodied. Ripe currants, asphalt, liquorice, green olives, spice. Classy and well mannered compared to some recent 2014 Right Bank wines I’ve had. — 6 days ago

Château Ausone

Saint Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

This has been my WOTN in blind tastings before and yet again Ausone came out on top for me. What a wine! Dark cherries, cassis, licorice, lavender, fine wood. It has everything. Tension, texture and a weightless silky sensation that is so irresistible. You can tell a lot of effort has been put it to making this wine. Very luxurious. The vineyards are planted with a a crazy high vine density of 12 600 vines per hectare. The quality of the fruit is through the roof. — 6 days ago

Château Teyssier

Le Dôme Saint-Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Really good. More Napa than Bordeaux in my mind. Medium plus depth with dark fruit and some cedar with tobacco. Really enjoyed this! — 3 days ago

Château Troplong Mondot

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Full bodied. Dark fruits, espresso, rooibos, blood orange, cherry liqueur. Round and silky. Powerful. Balanced. I am a fan of Troplong Mondot I must say. Great signature style that feels recognisable. — 17 days ago
