Red Bordeaux Blend

Château La Grave a Pomerol Trigant de Boisset

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Very dark rubi robe, discrete nose of top soil, asian spices and tobacco notes. Very floral in the mouth, elegant with soft tannins and green quite long. This is a top notch Pomerol at very reasonable prices. Another great bottle from this great 2008 vintage. — a month ago

Château d'Issan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Tight at first but the wine opened up quickly and gloriously! Tar and graphite on the palette to complement forest floor on the nose. This vintage continues to be a winner! — 9 days ago

Château Moulin Saint-Georges

Saint Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Wow what an amazing buy. Complex nose, classic but complex. Right bank stunner. Cedar, truffle, cassis, olive tapenade , slate, salt, with even an iron complement. Quite structured with amazing tannins still rounding out the fruit. Dark berries, blueberries , ripe blackberries, great tannins to give this wine the structure it needs to keep on aging. Great now, would love to try again in another 5 years. 14.5% — 8 days ago

Château Angélus

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Beautiful nose that was truly overshadowed by the palette presentation! Aromatic notes of cedar joined the complex tannins that while soft, needed a decant to take their rightful place. And while Parker has this wine in decline, I believe that this wine continues to show beautifully and should have many more years in a cellar. — 8 days ago

Château Auney L'Hermitage

Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

It is time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, cloves, vanilla, licorice, herbs, tobacco leaf, black tea, black pepper, coffee, pencil lead and earth.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, earth, peppercorn, herbs, tobacco leaf and light forest floor.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a tasty Merlot blend from Graves. A unique blend for this region.

Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

A good food wine and good by itself too. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

A blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. Aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

We had the 2009 and 2010 Vintages in a vertical tasting on 6/26/22. The 2009 had a more floral bouquet. The 2010 was more minerality and earthy. The 2010 got better with aeration. Tastes of black cherry and cassis. The 2009 was more red berry. For both the tannins smoothed out. Both had long finishes. Both, of course were classic Old World; have to consider them medium bodied. — 9 days ago

Château Brane-Cantenac

Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

First sip after opening was incredibly watery and light.

Took about 3 hours to open up and show. And then it was exactly as expected with great depth and fruit. Solid backbone and balance.

Finished before dessert

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1970

Ghosts and whispers of sensual, cigar-laden and mushroom-infused royalty. Friendly, happy ghosts and sexy-ass whispers. Needed 15 mins to come together and fell off before an hour but 40 mins of pure joy. — 10 days ago
