Maison Saint Aix

Château Pavie Macquin

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Decanted for a couple hours. High expectations.

NOSE: branches and brambly fruit … raspberry … a little leather and shoe polish … cassis … blueberry … old book (but not must, mid-century) … minerals and earth … something very fresh … leaves …

TASTE: elegant and subtle. Smooth. Dark fruits and leaves and smooth tannins. Black raspberry. Distinct minerals - clay, stones. Something very fresh, like fresh cut herbs or spices - but not green ones. Turkish coffee? There’s some very complex range of spices I can’t quite get to … cardamom is in there. Burnt orange. A dash of rose petal. A real treat. Started subtle, then once I had a bit to eat, began to explode. 95

EDIT: I believe this is the highest rating I have handed out for a red wine. It’s good.

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

The deep ruby colored Château Lafon-Rochet 2017 reveals aromas of blackcurrant, black cherries, red and black plum, cedar wood, mint and wet leafes. The palate is medium to full bodied, balanced by good acidity, decent fruit concentration and grippy tannins. Well made but fails to deliver a lasting impression. Drink from 2024 until 2037. — 6 days ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2012 Montrose has a taut and focused bouquet with crisp blackberry, tobacco and light earthy scents on the nose. Fine vigour and class evident here. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins on the entry, fine acidity, lightly spiced with a nicely proportioned and focused finish. This is a solid, almost swarthy Montrose, though it is surpassed by more recent vintages. Tasted twice at Bordeaux Index's Ten Year-On tasting and blind at the Southwold Ten-Year On tasting.

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Excellent start to fall with 82’ Cos. Perfume of cassis, old library and saddle leather gives way to an unctuous palate - cassis, hoisin, bacon, animal, tobacco and the classic Cos silky tannins. Excellent wine. — 7 days ago
