Château Belgrave

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

‪This Chateau Belgrave 1945, from a half bottle with a lower mid-shoulder level, was simply one of the most enjoyable wines I’ve ever had. Absolutely stunning; smokey, aged tobacco leaves - like a cigar shop in Havana. Lovely acidity, and phenomenal length! What a vintage:-D‬ — 12 days ago

Solid. Good balance here, needs a few years but the components are there. I’m a repeat buyer at €15 — 2 days ago

Yum. Possibly my best red blend to date. Smooth and full-bodied without being overly sweet. — 6 days ago

Château du Retout

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Significantly better than a year and half ago...maybe that was just an off bottle(?).
Anyway, this bottle is singing. Beautiful black cherry, cigar box, and earthy notes.
This has a solid decade plus of life ahead of it if properly cellared.

Another Wednesday Wine Committee for the books, this one in honor of a former WWC member, with the wines donates from his cellar by his family. A wonderful tribute. Wines tasted blind as usual.

I’m really starting to enjoy these wines. I guessed mid-late ‘80s Bordeaux. Drinking well with leather, old cherry tobacco, and an herbal spice. Great structure here. No sign of decline.

Welcome to a wonderful stylized decade in Bordeaux and a period that was largely 12-13% alcohol, which I definitely appreciate.
