Girl computer Cru Bourgeois. You guys. Get into the Cru Bourgeois it doesn’t mean you are bougie (which Merriam-Webster just decided to include in their dictionary so if you don’t know what I mean...look it up), it just means you have high standards and a way with bargains. Consummate old world. It’s all like hi I’m all dark berries and black currant and violets and we’ve been having a party with our buddy tar but hidden in a pencil box because we are supes into graphite. Fuck this ink nonsense we like stones and lead. This wine is badass but it really would like some food too methinks. Earth and cassis. I’d very much like a mushroom pizza on the side. — 11 days ago
Color : Red
Wine estate : Château Haut-Marbuzet
Designation : Saint-Estèphe
Name : Saint-Estèphe
Country : France
Vivino : 4/5
Note : A classic in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. A dark robe with a deep nose of black fruits. On the palate, a beautiful acidity still present with a complexity that makes it very good. A final on blackberry, raspberry wood and wood. A delight !
Un classique dans l’appellation Saint-Estèphe. Une robe sombre avec un nez profond de fruits noirs. En bouche, une belle acidité encore présente avec une complexité qui le rend très bon. Un final sur la mûre, framboise des bois et bois. Un régal !

At opening nor nose or mouth were revealing a lot. After 2 hours the nose opened up but the mouth was still very closed. After 4 hours she revealed her potential. Gave it the benefit of the doubt with a 9.0 but I think this will be rewarding with some additional cellaring. Soc. M. always seems to need a bit more time. So if you have any: hold or give her at least 4h of air... — 11 days ago
That Time in September when Jeanette brought Paris to me. Everything tastes better under the Eiffel Tower. — 5 days ago
2010 was very good, bought a case at Costco and sample one every 6 months or so. An 8 year old wine that tastes and looks younger. Very mellow tannins. — 12 days ago
Drank 9/1/18. Paired with red wine marinated lamb chops
Pleasant nose of red fruits, plumbs, and some earth and peppercorn. Plum and sour cherry flavors mix with some medium tannins. Well balanced. Long finish
3/21/8/4/4 +50 = 90 pts.
Drinking well now. May improve marginally. Will probably hold another 5-8 years. — 19 days ago
Old school Bordeaux meaning: more delicate ( though still robust) body, very dry & begging for food. Has the classic sweet cedar box thing. — 14 days ago
