Listrac Médoc, Médoc

Château Moulin du Bourg

Listrac-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

I liked this Bordeaux much more when I drank it second time. A bit spicy - with a peppery feel - in the beginning and the more air it changed character to a lovely round, full-bodied red. — 13 days ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

This was phenomenal. It’s incredible how youthful and powerful a 29-year old wine can be. Wonderful spicy nose, not a hint of age, beautiful color, great complexity, acidity, and length. This was a real pleasure and very memorable experience. — 14 days ago

Agree! Fantastic pick, and thanks for sharing!

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1971

Just a basic pop and pour kind of evening...

Maybe not. Thanks to
@Kuan Lim for sharing this 1971 (birth year wine) and a 1996. These age so gracefully and they were both spectacular in their own ways. I am going to give them both collectively a 96. Not often you get to taste such great wines together. Awesome!

I love those kinds of boring PnP nights!

Château Clement-Pichon

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Jam and leather on the nose. Light red fruit on the front. Medium level tannic structure. Soft landing on the end, but this wine resonates on the palate long after the swallow. — 6 days ago

Château Montbrun

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice surprise from Margaux, Bordeaux.

Dark brown in color with a wide brick rim.

Great complexity on the nose with blueberries, black currants, potpourri, raspberries, earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, green vegetables, vinaigrette, black tea, mashrooms, forest floor, smoke, tobacco leaf, spices and graphite.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, dried fruits, wood, cloves, forest floor, tobacco leaf, spices, black pepper, earth, black tea, vinaigrette, mushrooms, wet leaves, herbs and graphite.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

What a great experience this is. This 36 Year old, Cabernet based Bordeaux, is drinking very nicely now. Showing great complexity on both the nose and palate, with a soft mouthfeel. Resembles a 40 year old Barolo.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Took 90 minutes to peak.

Not from a great vintage, but it is still holding great.

I paired it with good friends, and a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

I can't say what the alcohol level is, but it feels like 12.5%

91 points.

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

1989 vintage. Still a great deal of fruit. At the top of the bell curve and seamless right now. Plenty of good years left. Nice, lingering finish of 45+ seconds replete with wet earth, cedar, baking chocolate and tobacco. — a day ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

I wish I had more of this before it was gone. Decanted for 2 hours. Black frui and earth. Nice acidity. Smooth tannins. This could easily go another 10+ years. — 6 days ago

@David T I was really pleasantly surprised since it was my first time having. I have one from an earlier vintage that I should probably open soon. Been holding it for a while. Was so thrilled how this one opened up. I “need” to find more.

Château Lalande

Listrac-Médoc Merlot Blend 2016

Very good, a bit of spicy pepper — 15 days ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Le Pauillac de Pichon Longueville Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Tawny color. Not overly dark. Nice nose. Notes of black cherry, mocha, light tobacco and a hint of coffee. Very smooth and great mouth feel. Gave this 7 hours of air which was very much needed as this was closed and quiet at open. Everyone liked this. — a day ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Delectable Wine

The 1990 Lynch-Bages remains the towering Pauillac it has always been, even if Jean-Michel Cazes personally prefers the 1989. It has a riveting, graphite-infused bouquet that is brilliantly defined, very focused and sharp as a razor-blade. Poured directly against the 1990 Lafite-Rothschild, this Fifth Growth beats it hands down. The palate is very well structured; this is an aristocratic Lynch-Bages with impressive grip after 28 years. There is a symmetry underpinning this wine, a sense of energy undiminished by the passing years, that makes this 1990 Lynch-Bages so compelling. Just awesome. Tasted during the Christmas Dinner at Noble Rot restaurant. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2019)
