Château Phélan Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

9.2

Drank 1/22/20. Very nice with lamb chops and a red wine reduction, but best to avoid anything sweet.

Scents of Blackberry, cassis, wet stones, tar, and just a hint of green bell pepper. Very dark on the palate, with blackfruit, tar, cocoa nib, and espresso. Very well balanced. Tannins are somewhat firm, with a long, dry finish. Give it at least a 30 min decant. Should hold at least 5 more years. A quality wine for sure.

Spot on and still young. Dark red color no bricking. Showing some secondary notes of charred wood and leather with light tobacco. Still tannic and could’ve used a decant. Great wine — 2 days ago

Château La Gaffelière

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

1 hour decant was perfect. Dark purple color. Nose of firewood burning on a cold night. Wine is dark cherry with some medicinal elements. Great depth! Medium finish. High quality producer in my mind as this is the first time I’ve had it. I really enjoyed it. Paired well with seasoned, marinated beef skewers and lamb steak. — 11 days ago

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Surprisingly open for business. Intense dark fruit with the tannins not getting in the way. This is one Bordeaux you can enjoy right now! Dark fruit, cassis, and some graphite notes. — 11 days ago

Château La Grâce Dieu

Les Menuts St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Superb nose with tar, meat juice, black currant, an irony thing. This is inviting and strong, very inviting. The palate is wonderful! Super acid backbone with a bright black currant all along, a velvety touch on the sides that remains all along, tannins have already started to integrate. There is width, there is length, there is fruit, there is grip. The finish lasts for a long time with a nice fruit, some meat juice too and a pinch of bitterness. V
In a great place right now!

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

The great 2005 vintage. Power and structure, rich black fruits, pencil shavings, saddle leather, tobacco and spices. Finishes with exceptional length and complexity. A bottle that can be enjoyed thoroughly now or age for decades. A terrific treat at Tak Room. — 9 days ago

Château Langoa Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

30+ minute decant. The most purple colored wine I’ve ever had. Wine is very young and has many years/decades left. Unique in that it is a mix of Bordeaux, Napa, Aussie Shiraz, and Spain all in one. Very deep wine with tons of fruit, even some rhubarb! Medium plus finish. Very enjoyable, but needs more age. — 5 days ago
