St. Estèphe, Médoc

Château Beau-Site Haut-Vignoble

St. Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1982

A bunch of friends came over last night. A few wine bums and one guy who knew nothing about wine, so I asked him to pull bottles out of my cellar and serve them to us blind (my best bottles are in cabinets). This was really tasty, with pencil shavings and cherries on the nose, and racy acidity (in a good way). So much so that I thought it was Portuguese:-& Steve pinned it as an ‘82 Cru Bourgeois from St Estephe or Pauillac, which was quite something given how atypical it was. — 9 days ago

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Wonderful wine paired with the chef’s tasting menu tonight in Breda Netherlands. A very solid French Bordeaux - dry, abrupt finish. Great way to kick off the EU travel tour. — 15 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

Everything you want out of St Estephe (even though the chateau is famously close to Pauillac from a terroir perspective...) Black currant, plums, leather, green tobacco, iodine, olive tapenade, but velvety soft so the austerity doesn’t extend to the tannic structure. — 6 days ago
