Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

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

Château Moulin de Tricot

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Nice, cheap ~n~ trashy Bordeaux. Better in day 2. It’s not going to split atoms, but solid for the dough. — 19 days ago

Château Haut-Marbuzet

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

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 !

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

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

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

Not the best vintage for the left bank, but this wine was very well balanced with refined tannins....lovely earthly and rich dark plum and black fruit notes. A very enjoyable Haut-Medoc wine from Château D'Issan. — 22 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.

L'Héritage de Chasse-Spleen Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Very complex, an intellectual wine (as a good friend would say). Loads of cassis and pepper. Serious barnyard on the nose. Long finish. This could age nicely 10 more years. — 20 days ago

Good stuff, Mo...

Château Aney

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

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
