Found this bottle tucked away in a small liquor store and took a chance on it. Damn! What a happy find.
Drinking the 2007 in 2021 and it's good now, no further aging will improve it. The fruit flavors are still intact and in balance with the matured tertiary flavors.

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

In a word - WOW. After an hour decant, this beauty sprang into action. A very masculine wine with dark fruits, olive and tobacco on the nose. The palate was dense and lush with loads of dark fruits, olive, game, tobacco and leather with a finish that just kept going. It will be interesting to see how this develops from here but this is a really special right now. — 11 days ago

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

The wines was perfect! It aged so well and showed richness of aromas such as tosted, vanilla, ‘sous bois’, mushrooms, dried berries and figs, and a hint of eucalyptus
The tannins are so velvet, the acidity is refreshing yet and the finish is delicious!

Very good wine!

Château Cos d'Estournel

Les Pagodes de Cos Saint-Estéphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Starting the week off right with the second bottle from Chateau Cos d'Estournel the 2009 Les Pagodes de Cos. This is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, cassis, green bell pepper, chocolate, violets, cedar, spice, and earth.

On the palate I am able to get notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, cassis, green bell pepper, asian spice, tobacco and earth.

This a beautiful full bodied smooth fresh mouthfeel with medium + to high acidity and medium + to high mouth coating grippy sweet tannins that lead into a long dark fruit spicy earth finish. What a great way to start the week. This second bottle would be a classic first anytime. Have a great week ahead and pleas stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
