Château Lynch-Moussas

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Chocolate and leather, black olives and pencil shavings; this wine has a terrific and expressive nose, a multi layered palate expression and good, powerful but also light footed balance. Deep balsamic and nutty notes in the medium long finish. — 7 days ago

Château Latour

Grand Vin de Château Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

So my wife’s bday dinner, was it this or 1990 which I know and adore. Dr Latour said let’s go more modern. 1996. Wow... from the moment I popped the cork, to the decant, to 3hrs in this was just adding weight and growing. Underbrush, Leather, with that Pauillac string of Graphite and crystalline red fruit. I think these are just starting to come into their window, but still a long way to go. Best bottle of 96 I have had and close to best bottle of the year. I can still taste it as I write these notes. A wine that will stop you in your tracks. Speechless. — 6 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Only one more bottle left. Glad we got a reference point on it. Plenty of life remaining. A classic Mouton - cassis, tobacco, some spice, very long finish. — 11 days ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Echo de Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Baby killer! 2015 vintage. Cherry and Black pepper notes on the nose. Cherry, cranberry, cinnamon and black pepper. Has softened considerably in the first 30 minutes, almost velvety. Needs a ton more time, but will be worth the wait. Update: more graphite on the finish. — 6 days ago
