Savasol Menu Pineau

New Year’s Eve leftovers forgotten (open) in the fridge after an epic night and a full day of napping. So after 36 hours it’s still pretty righteous amber bliss, a bitter edge with singular notes of butterscotch, anise, petrol, citrus rind, pine, and the faintest bit of untanned leather on the way way back....nice performance. very easy late morning armchair drinking. vendor says 2015 but the bottle is not marked. — 23 days ago

Château Lagrange

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Drinking great ten years in. Beautiful deep ruby color. Aromas of plum, leather, pipe tobacco, and dried black fruit. Decanted for 4 hours — delicate balance of supple fruit against well structured tannin. There are smoky leathery notes on the palate, but blackberry, cassis, and plum fruit all come through. I think we caught this one at a great moment. Could be softer, but pairing great with medium rare zabuton steaks. — 2 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

At first there is forest soil, mushrooms, then cedar, tobacco, and there is still fruit with black currant mainly. This is rather complex. At first the palate was a little bit harsh around the edges, with pointy tannins and a brutal mouthfeel. Getting it 3 hours of air helped the wine settle and now there is a velvety mouthfeel, tannins roll in mid palate and there is a bright fruit note all along. It's not powerful, but that might be a vintage thing, but it's subtle and complex. A long finish with fruit and a bit of a salty, meaty note comes up in the end. Not the best clos du marquis I've had but a good, solid wine in an off vintage. — 8 days ago

Worth the wait. It did not disappoint! Seems to be a wine many keep waiting for and I was hesitant to rush on this but couldn’t resist any longer. I thought it was fantastic. No rough edges to be found. I think this baby is more than ready to be enjoyed! Currants, earth notes, and subtle mature fruit. Consumed over about 5.5 hours and decanted in a magnum decanter. It was very good in the first hour and fantastic by the fourth where I personally think it peaked. Thankfully, I have one more bottle for the future! — 9 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

La Croix Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

A blend of 58% Merlot, 39% Cab Sauv & 3% Petit Verdot, deep Ruby with aromas of fresh red fruit with woodsy spice. On the palate flavors of red plum and cherry with some cacao and licorice notes. This wine shows oak and mineral tones with fine tight tannins and good balance. Long finish with fruit and spice ending. Needs a few years of bottle age. Reasonably price, good value. — 19 days ago
