Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

9.6

Drank 6/18/22.

Nose of cherry, blueberry, smoke, earth, and hint of cedar. On the palate, morello cherry, leather, tar, with long, dry finish. Give it another 5-10 years to shine.

4/23/9/5/5 +50 = 96 pts , but needs time

Special wine geek note. This was tasted along with the 2009 pontet, and the 2000 Dominus. This was the best of the lot. Sorry, no pics

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

Ghosts and whispers of sensual, cigar-laden and mushroom-infused royalty. Friendly, happy ghosts and sexy-ass whispers. Needed 15 mins to come together and fell off before an hour but 40 mins of pure joy. — 2 days ago

Château Clerc Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Still very drinkable, opens a bit musty but decanted soon looses that to bright cherry and fruit with a long lingering mid-pallet and leather, tobacco notes on the finish. Still good - no matter what the drinkability charts may show!! — 8 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1945

Tasted blind. Deep amber tawny color with a powerful nose. Exotic. Notes of red cherries, old cedar desk, plum, mint/menthol, cinnamon, and a little molasses. Tannins fully resolved, leaving silky juice that got better and better over the evening. At first this seemed like it was a bit past its prime, but with a ton of air over the day/night, this powered up and reminded us it's one of the best bottles of grape juice ever made. Ethereal is perhaps the best word to describe the experience. Thanks Murray! — 15 days ago

Château Fonbadet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Château Fonbadet Pauillac 2017: Medium-full bodied. Nice balance. Good acidity and approachable tannins. Bursting black fruits. Plum. Leather. Vanilla. Oak. Medium plus finish. Consisting of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, the youthful Bordeaux blend produces great fruit concentration with nice length & elegance. All in all, a respectable young (a good cellar candidate) yet very enjoyable wine. Cheers🍷 — 17 days ago

Château Latour

Les Forts de Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

A hearty and rich Forts, could bluff its way to a 1st growth blind. Consensus was this needed more time but decanting a few hours brought out sweet layers of cedar and dark red berry. Monster nose. — 22 days ago
