Red Bordeaux Blend

Germain-Saincrit

Château Le Peuy Saincrit Bordeaux Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

FINALLY - a French wine that is incredible in the USA. You know they keep the good stuff there! How do I describe this? The nose has a fresh mint bouquet. The initial palate is blueberry and black licorice. There is a back seat to blackberry and raspberry. The mid palate has chocolate and hints of oak all over it. The finish is extremely dry and lingering with a tart finish! — 5 days ago

Château Margaux

Margaux Premier Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Beautiful ruby color with a garnet rim. Red and back fruit, soil, lead pencil, clay and dry herbs on the nose. Same on the palate with hints of white pepper that lasts on the lingering finish. Almost rated it on the nose only. Such a treat, all class and elegance. — a day ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Le Petit Haut Lafitte Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Estate dates back to Crusades & Scottish navigator, George Smith, owner in the 18th century. Followed by M. Duffour-Dubergier, Mayor of Bordeaux, then Louis Eschenauer, a famous wine shipper. In 1990, Daniel & Florence Cathiard now own estate. Blend of 60% Cab Sauv & 40% Merlot, dark berry aromas, herbs and earthy spice. Palate is complex with cherry & currant flavors, pepper, tobacco & cacao notes. Soft tannins, rich and full, lingering, earthy, mineral ending, needs a bit of time. — 19 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1997

This was amazing. By far the best Cos I’ve enjoyed to date. Stinky burnt goat hair on the nose. Incredible mouth feel with elongated finish. Completely well rounded tannins. Wonderful experience. Burnt raspberries on the pallet. Yumalicious — 8 days ago

Friday night is here and I have opened the 2015 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Réserve de la Comtesse a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

The nose is is rich in dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black plum, mocha, tar, cedar and dark rich soil.

On the palate the dark fruit continues through with black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, licorice, oak, graphite and rich earthy notes.

This wine is full bodied with a silky mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead to a long dark fruit earthy finish. Have a great weekend, stay safe and have some nice wines. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Château Margaux

Pavillon Rouge Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Opened this afternoon. Very astringent finish initially with lots of oak and ash. The nose initially was worthy of a 96. Wildflowers, herb-rich, sweet fruit, but quite a bit of oak. Palate was soft, yet rather powerful. Wild herb, black cherry, fig, ash, sweet tobacco and rather complex. Would have gone perfectly with a marinated pork loin and herb roasted potatoes. Still getting quite a bit of astringency and acidity on the finish. Capable of so much more. Goes to show you the structure of the second wine of Ch Margaux! — 4 days ago

Very nice bottle for Mark to open on a Wed afternoon. Initially pop and poured before we got it in to a decanter quickly. Surprised (in a good way) by the smoked meat aromatics! Not Rhône like smoked meat, but more just a touch of sweet and savory smoke with peppercorn. Herbal and quite floral too aromatically. Obviously still young and on the upward trajectory, it was quite chewy. Bay leaf, underripe black cherry and plum with sweet tobacco leaves rounded out the palate with stiff tannin at the finish. I’m sure this uncoiled a bit after decanting, but I’d hold for another 5yrs to get full enjoyment. Thanks Mark!

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Located on the terrace of alluvial gravel bordering the river. The "Village de La Lagune" was a tenant farm in its place and gradually transformed into a wine-growing estate. Dark purple with red fruits spice and earthy aromas. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with cedar, cacao, tobacco and leather notes. Fine sweet tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy notes. Needs some aging. Nice! — 11 days ago

Château Le Prieure

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

This was lovely. While still a baby, i needed to try this. Big nose after an hour of being open. Luscious mouthfeel but the tannins are tight, as they should be This could be a true gem in 5+ years. — 4 days ago
