Heck of a hosting by @Weston Eidson last night for the City Club wine group. All wines were tasted blind.

Cerebral and spectacular. Best Bordeaux I’ve had. A stunning showing at 19yrs young. I called this early 2000s Bordeaux but actually thought it was Right Bank...there is a gorgeous medley of soft and ripe dark blue and black fruit here. Not juicy, but more floral and expressive. Palate was lifted with fantastic structure and softened tannins (thanks to 4hrs in the decanter). Pipe tobacco but hardly any herbal or leather notes. The softness of this wine is what made it a star. Flavor without being dense. Co WOTN.

Clos Marsalette

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

16.5+/20 (91+/100) Насыщенный аромат и молодой с нотами кожи, бузины, жимолости, черники и шоколада. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и довольно интенсивными, но мелкозернистыми по текстуре танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе, ягодное послевкусие. Молодо, есть потенциал к выдержке, но уже сейчас можно получить удовольствие. — 4 days ago

Good, but unfortunately the weakest of the BDX lineup. I expected slightly more oomph. But then again, the fill was vhs when it should have been ts given the age. — 3 days ago
