Pauillac, Médoc

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Réserve de la Comtesse Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

On this Saturday night I have opened the 2014 Réserve De La Comtesse. 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot the second wine from Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de la Lalande.

On the nose there is sumptuous dark fruit, blackberry, black cherry, black currant, stewed plums, chocolate, a bit of meatiness and tar.

On the palate the dark fruit continues with blackberry, black cherry, black currant, licorice, cedar, smoky oak, mocha and an earthiness.

This wine has a velvety mouth feel an is medium to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + fine rounded tannin that leads to a delicious lingering finish. Stay safe and continued enjoyable weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château Grand-Puy Ducasse

Prelude a Grand-Puy Ducasse Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Killer Wine Night. Lineup of 17 wines. Tasted blind. Theme was Old World Killer “B” (the letter “B” has to be the first letter in one of the proper nouns in the wine e.g., region, varietal, type, winery name, etc.)

Wine 13. Young with wet earth and blackberry pie. Gravelly finish. Classic Bordeaux.

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Deep garnet in color. At first, black fruit and roasted coffee dominated the nose, but then it opened up into a surprising scent of beautiful spring flowers, spice box and earth after a couple hours of exposure to air. Tannin was fine, but it did have a nice gripping feel to it that built on after the sip. From an assemblage of 80% Can Sauv and 20% Merlot. This Pichon Baron 2014 has power and concentration without it being overly heavy on the palate. Already pleasant to drink now, but will probably be fun to drink given another 3-5 years in the cellar. — 19 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1949

A treat. Dark in color, slightly cloudy. A powerful nose with dark, very mouton fruit. Incredibly aromatic, blackcurrant, mint,graphite, dried herbs, eucalyptus. The palate is extraordinary. So dense and powerful for a wine of almost 70 years. Dark fruit with a savory undertow- leather, thyme, sour cherry, dark chocolate. Really precise flavors and long. After an hour or two in glass there’s notes of coconut and soft wood. Extraordinary. Clearly there’s a lot of age on this but the sheer quality makes for a really dynamic wine. An exceptional bottle, and a teal treat. — 7 days ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1964

A shocking surprise that the cork was sufficiently intact to provide a quality wine experience ... no corking, and improved immensely over the hour while four of us sipped it. The wine had more acidity than expected, but very light on tannins and fruit ... a lot of cedar I might say, but enjoyable to see how it evolved in the glass! I’d owned the wine since 1970, with storage limited to cool basements in different houses, but no “cooking” experiences. I was hopeful since there had been no wine leakage, and the level was only 0.5” into the shoulder, but we were all still surprised. No cork debris at all went into the bottle, and upon decanting, sediment levels were revealed as extremely low. Great fun for all! Tasted with Florence Jackson and Tom and Renee Stevenson! — 16 days ago

Château Latour

Les Forts de Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

My bottle, fascinating to drink next to a ‘98 Grand Vin. Wish I had done it blind. This had a better nose, classic cigar box, smokey vanilla. Just didn’t have the weight of its richer brother despite incredible notes of black tea and cherry, light wood. Long finish. Beautiful, peaking. — 8 days ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

High shoulder fill. Lots of sediment left in bottle after decanting. Burly dark reddish color. Doesn’t look it’s age. Notes of black cherries, cedar box, smoke, old leather saddle, forest floor and a little menthol. The complex nose gives way to a nice core of fruit in the mouth that is balanced against still present tannin and structure. This is a great old Bordeaux that has plenty of life in front of it. BDay dinner 9/12. — 12 days ago

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

30 minutes open in the bottle, but could use more. Amazing nose filled with dirt, tar, and dark cherry. High quality wine composed of smoke and an abundance of fruit, although a little tartness earlier on. Finish is on the shorter side. I am absolutely in love with these ‘04 and ‘05 Bordeaux’s in the £50 to £70 range!! — 12 days ago
