St. Estèphe, Médoc

Château Tronquoy-Lalande

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Enjoyed with dinner. This went really well with olive tapenade and hummus. Nose is tobacco, green pepper, dirty fig. Entry is earthy black fruit. Mushroom and a bit of plum. A slight bit savory. Middle goes to dried tobacco but brown grapestem and green pepper . Finish is funky. The hummus and olive tapenade took full advantage of the funk elements here. Seemed to be definitely more earthy than the other bottle enjoyed a couple of years before. Enjoyable for a budget Bordeaux. — 7 days ago

Le Marquis Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2014


fleshy at its 14,5% and so primarily fruity and fresh; this is a good spot) for vines and they handled the metier perfectly. Deep gravel/almost chalky and embedded clay make this depth. The fleshy opposite to the watery/cranberry style. A modern classic on a side — 6 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1978

Wow. This was THE perfect bottle. Very complex in all phases. Fruits still lush. Tannins resolved. Hints of leathers, spices, dust. It felt so young and packed with flavor while remaining elegant and light on its feet. Actually left some for a second night and it was still beautiful and alive. And so fun to be caught off guard by allure and intrigue. — 15 hours ago

From a 0,375l.
Still performing really well. Dark, concentrated, clay-ey blackberry, plush and low-acidic mouthfeel.
Drink now or in the next 5 years.

St. Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

Phenomenal Bordeaux. Great depth of evolving layers of currant, cassis, dark cherry and ..oh so well integrated tannins. Smooth and extremely well balanced. Bernard told us that St Estephe is the feminine side of Pauillac while Saint Julien is the masculine side. This wine supports that notion. Paired extremely well with bbq copper river salmon from Alaska. — 9 days ago

Château Phélan Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

In 1805, Daniel Phelan, an Irish wine broker, acquired le Clos de Garamey, and was followed in 1810 by the acquisition of the Segur de Cabanac estate, creating the domain that remains today. Initial Aromas of leather, oak and earthiness hit about, medium(+), bringing in subtle flavors of blackberry and herb. On the palate subtle fruit flavors of blackberry, herb, leather, smoky oak and meatiness carry from the nose. Medium(+) acidity on firm medium(+) tannins of this full body wine carry the flavors to a medium(+) length finish. Very good, but undelivered a bit, drink now will not get better. — 16 days ago

St. Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 1989

Birth year bottle for my wife’s 30th. Didn’t really know if this was gonna hold up, but it was very good. Tannins have mostly resolved—lots of tobacco and earth, but still a good amount of spicy fruit and acid still present. In an excellent drinking window. — 7 days ago

Great balance of jammy, dark fruit, and pepper/tobacco without feeling heavy. Would pair well with many hearty, savory meals. — 2 days ago
