Haut Médoc, Médoc

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Black currant, cedar, tar, cigar box, coffee, vanilla. Quite a complex nose. The palate is very concentrated with a strong acid backbone, and some dark and dense matter with black currant and somehow dusty tannins that kick everything up. The finish is very long and very wide with some bitterness popping up, black currant, and a pinch of salt. We paired this baby with a gigantic beef T-bone. Perfect pairing. It's still very young and needs time. Not a 9 because it's still too young — 6 days ago

If they are as concentrated as this one (which they might be) they can rest for a good 20 years without any problem.

Château de Ville George

Grand Cru Exceptionnel Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

Wow. The 10 rating is for how incredible this is considering it’s 58 yeard old. Incredible amount of fruit still present with a great flavor profile. Unbelievable. (Ignoring the quality/age ratio, it’s probably a 9.1-9.2, but easily hits 10 when other factors are considered!) — 22 days ago

Château Duhart Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

(Tasted blind, correctly guessed 1989 left bank Bordeaux) Even more gratifying than correctly guessing the wine, the 1989 Chateau Duhart-Milon is a resounding success to savor from this great vintage in Bordeaux. At now thirty years of age, the wine is still highly polished and focused, showing a beautiful array of aromatics from graphite to damp earthy tones that collide with shades of wild mushroom, wet stone and black currants that are all taking shape in the glass. Soft and generous on the mouth, the wine dances with a beam of salinity that cuts through the lovely layers of black fruits, peat moss and herbal undertones of the wine. Still quite lively and energetic, the 1989 Chateau Duhart-Milon is drinking marvelously at this stage in its development and has at least another decade of drinking pleasure left.

Château Belgrave

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

A smooth wine that was completely drinkable after opening. Standard Bordeaux on the nose with a palette comprised of subtle stone fruit and more powerful cedar - with a finish that concludes towards the stone fruit! A lighter version of Bordeaux that the more complex Chateaux, but a pleasant wine with our steak dinner nevertheless. — 14 days ago

Château Haut-Batailley

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

tannins are melted but the wine is still primary on the fruit side. I don't think this will get better than now but it does make a great wine to sip without food. — 3 hours ago
