Pauillac, Médoc

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

The 2001 Château Mouton Rothschild is wonderful showing from a challenging vintage in the left bank. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this begins with aromatics of dark fruits, leather, damp earth and wet gravel all developing in the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous silky texture, with outstanding balance and notable concentration considering the cooler conditions that occurred late in the growing season. While the 2001 is certinaly enticing at this stage, it happens to be lacking some of the characteristics readers might expect from a classic vintage of Mouton. Nonetheless, this is still an excellent wine, which drinking beautifully right now and should go on to provide another decade of enjoyment. Drink 2019-2033- 93 — 4 days ago

From 375ml. Cigar box that opens to reveal hibernating, aged but lush fruit which quick awakens with a breath. My first first growth, and grateful to experience age. — 2 days ago

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

The 2012 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is comprised of of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot made by François-Xavier Borie, oenologist Christel Spinner and consulting oenologist Eric Boissenot. The vines at Grand-Puy-Lacoste are 38 years old and are set on gravel soils. The wine needs more than a two hour decant to unveil ripe creme de cassis, anise and graphite flavors with lighter earthy tones. Bright and focused, this is just an infant now.

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Rainbow unicorn kitty alert! I love older Bordeaux’s but this is epic. Full bodied but the tannins are so integrated it comes across as a lush mouthful of Pauillac joy. It has a long lasting finish to boot. This bottle went in a flash. — 5 days ago

The nose reveals, perfume floral, dark, ripe cassis. Ripe; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum, plum, strawberry flesh, sweet tarriness, black licorice, steeped, dark, fruit tea, limestone minerals, dry stone, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, dark spice, rich, moist dark soil, just a hint of herbaceous notes, mint, leather, fresh tobacco, graphite, dark berry cola, fresh, dark red, blue and purple florals with violets.

The body is; rich, lush, gorgeous, sexy, and full. The tannins are; round, velvety, still a little firm and sticky with tarriness. The structure, tension, length and balance are just hitting harmony. Ripe; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum, blueberries, plum, strawberry flesh, sweet tarriness, black licorice, steeped, dark, fruit tea, limestone minerals, dry stone, wet clay, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, dark spice with heat, rich, moist dark soil, dry crushed rocks, just a hint of herbaceous notes; mint, bay leaf, thyme, leather, expresso roast grounds, cigar with ash, graphite, dark berry cola, fresh, dark red, blue and purple florals, lavender with violets. The acidity is a fresh water stream. The finish is unbelievably; elegant, well balanced & polished, lush, rich, ruby, gorgeously sexy and lasts minutes.

Warm, ripe Bordeaux’s vintage with roughly two decades of good drinking ahead of it.

Photos of, my favorite Chateau in Bordeaux, their newer barrel room that sits under the bottom photo, field hands harvesting their Estate fruit and the outer building that is their barrel room.

The wine is taking a long time to blow off the funk but the elegance is shining through - color has not broken down but not fruit forward which I am glad - structure still in tact 19 years later and finish is softer than I desire but bottom line drinking and enjoying and helping me absorb shitty music like John Denver my wife is playing / I pray her playlist ends soon / this wine is not to be enjoyed by itself like I am doing as I started a diet so no cheese 😢 / this is not going to age and get better so enjoy if you have - just a little smile tonight — 6 days ago
