Château d'Armailhac

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

I am pretty sure I paid around $30-$35 a bottle in its first tranche release. Seems Millesima USA is selling it today for $149 a bottle through the app. The reason to collect and age. It is drinking well beyond that price point twenty years from inception or how I always look at wine is eighteen years in bottle. For me, that’s how I decide when to open. How many years in the bottle is its real age.

It is dark cherry, cherry, blackberry, black raspberries, strawberries, raspberries with bright florals. Amazing smoothness, bright violets, excellent acidity and a well, evenly polished finish that pairs with fatty steaks for days. Stupidly perfect from a warm/ripe Bordeaux vintage.

Happy holidays. 🎅🧑‍🎄 ☃️ 🎄 🎁 ❄️

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

This has basically become my favorite Bourgogne Rouge. I can’t afford to buy the Burgundy that I really want to and love to drink, so I gotta get my fix in other ways and this wine never disappoints. It’s also aging quite well. I bought a tranche of the 15’s a number of years ago and they’re just gorgeous. Incredible pure expression of forest berries that have an almost alpine quality with lovely florals and aromatic herbs all enlivened by nervy acidity and a gorgeous silky texture. I love pretty much all the wines from Hudelot-Noellat. — 2 years ago

So true about the affordability for most of us. Quality regional and village is the only access for ordinary folk. Even some Bourgogne is now expensive! Rousseau etc Good work Alder
