Fleurie Gamay 2017

Vivid, high-toned, finely etched tannin and great dimension. Captures the depth and complexity that I love in Fleurie so well. Bramble, wild herbs, floral bouquets, potpourri and finely crushed rocks — 10 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

A nice Bordeaux but not sure - could maybe use a bit more time. Quite dark in the glass, lots of dark fruit on the nose and palate. Nice acid on the finish but surprisingly still quite tannic and closed. — 2 days ago

Château Lagrange

Les Fiefs de Lagrange St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

With about 10% of my olfactive capacities I can say it smells like black currant, a bit of tar, some other red and black berries. Quite nice. The palate is a bit thiner than expected but it might be a vintage thing. Great acid frame, black currant rolling all along, some nice velvety touch on the sides, gentle tannins and a finish made of fruit. Cool, pleasant but not great — 3 days ago

Château Saint-Pierre

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

Bottle 1 turned. Bottle 2 was fine. I expected more complexity out of a Bordeaux with this age. I will happily drink the rest of my case but I’d pass on this vintage in the future. — 3 days ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

Just a delight to savor and drink. Very tasty mature fruit with resolved tannins. Pleasure to share with good friends at a birthday dinner. At 60 years this Bordeaux still drinks well.😀🍷🍷. Bottled by Nicolas of France. — 12 days ago

Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Wine still a great example of true Bordeaux finesse, this with some sentimental flashbacks to 1986 made this a great moment. — 11 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

A nice St Julien from a great producer in a great vintage. Aromatics are excellent - as is the mid palate, with a ton of dark fruit and earth. The finish has not come together as much as I’d like or expect at this point - a bit muddled with slightly subdued acid. — 2 days ago

Delectable Wine
9.2

Deep ruby. Fresh dark berries, cherry pie, candied violet and a suggestion of smoky minerals on the assertively perfumed nose. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering juicy blueberry, cherry compote, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that slowly tighten up with air. Finishes sappy, smooth and very long, showing persistent florality and fine-grained tannins that rise up slowly. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, October 2019) — 4 days ago
