Château Rauzan-Gassies

Deuxieme Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

I’ve had my mind on this bottle for a few weeks - the wife wanted a special bottle for a regular Friday night. It only needed an hour to decant for a 12-year old vintage. Subtle cassis, cured meat, mushroom, hint of licorice and leather on the palate. Fine dense tannins polish off a savory finish. Beautiful wine. #margaux #2ndgrowth — a month ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1928

Charles (Chad) Bucklin
9.5

Just a special experience. The nose was powerful and dynamic evolving beautifully over 30 minutes. A smokey phase, a pine phase, and a strong floral phase. The palate was balanced and smooth. The fruit was dead but resembled fruit leather. Two bottles opened, one had grip left, the other didn't. #moutonrothschild #grandcruclassé #2ndgrowth #bordeaux #pauillac #1928 #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
