Médoc, Bordeaux

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Black cherry and plum tart emerging through aromas of violets dotting brown breads, shiitake and black oak. Cinnamon, cedar and clove coalesce. Raspberry reduction with currants. Hints of mints. Tart cherry palate brings cherry reduction and black currants, tons of dark cedar wrapped cigar, tart blackberry, peppercorn and cinnamon stick. Green notes suggest this is still young and half-blossomed despite the quarter century. Grainy tannins, though rounded.

Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

NOSE: smells like really good wine. Clear, juicy, berry compote, concentrated cassis - pencil box, mild lavender, exotic spices, minerals.

TASTE: wow, elegant and tasty - like the nose but more. At once fruity and approachable - but dense, iron and graphite, lavender, exotic spices, leather, flint, juicy blackberry and cassis, tar, tannins taste like bitter herbs and wood ash. Tastes “purple.” I would really love to try this with more age on it. Better than most other wines I’ve tried. 94.

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Pretty, effusive and in a great spot now for early drinking - but this will go some way yet! The nose is very Médoc and almost Pauillac-like, with very pure aromatics and a prominent iron/graphite streak. The wine itself is medium to full-bodied, bright and vibrant, slightly zesty if not hugely concentrated, but well balanced and features a refreshing finish. — 13 days ago

This was pulled last night for everyone to try. Grateful to get a taste of this one. Would have never guessed 1995. 1995 the year I finished law school. This was a lovely wine. — 9 days ago

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

Wow! Black currants, dark cherry, a bit of old leather and a touch of light oak. This is classic layered Latour/Bordeaux at its peak with soft tannins and a long finish. A beautiful bottle of wine… and the good news for me is that I have more! — 5 days ago

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Ripest red cherry and red rose aromatic hybrid. Cherry and strawberry blossoms. Herbaceous basil and tarragon sweetness awash in warm plum and baked currants. Flowering elms with wet black bark. Finally, oak and smoke. Perfect integration on the palate. Ready now but also for the foreseeable. Sweet raspberry and blackberry flash and recede to an obverse tart cherry with incredible indelible, satisfying depth. Sweet tobacco is outlined by Saigon cinnamon, clove, allspice and a strangely sweet pepper dichotomy. Really a perfect wine in every way. Smoke and graphite find a way to bow into the shimmery finish with finesse.
