Château Duhart Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Another 2005. Magnum kept the oxygen in check, but reveals it still quite young. Magnolia in a warm breeze. Cherry blossom. Pine, chainsaw heated. Coffee rye. Violets, both fresh and dry, on this floral led bouquet. Rich blackberry in a medium-verging-heavy mouthfeel rich black currant, ripe cassis, sloes, rosemary, sweet mocha tobacco, black cherry and smoke. Relentlessly rich.

I don’t have many ‘05s. But ‘09s and ‘10s in excess. I may need to visit some auctions.

Château Lafon-Rochet

Les Pelerins de Lafon-Rochet St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

A hard, black knotted knee of bramble smolders. Dried blackberries crammed into its expressive creases. Black currants, dusty truffles, dried and flaking violets, touches of blueberry and raspberry. Horsehair and lilacs.
Courteously smooth with undulating tannins. Sensual. Black olive thoroughbred snorts through the smoldering, charcoal rears, graphite crackles, and tobacco and chocolate hybridize. Bridled with leather, and kid leather textures, rosemary wood, shrubbings and toothy-tart cranberry; Finish coaxing even the imaginative sense.

Château Féret-Lambert

Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Expected purple-black without variance. Ripe plums and rich prunes dance the dance of dawn and dusk. Dried blackberry and red currant trace their steps. Clean waters flow and blueberry and elderberry emerge. Even bacon fat. This is plump Bordeaux. Graphite washes thinly, revealing black currant and lingonberry fleetingly before settling on dried lavender and dried mallow blossom and briny violet. True to the rue. Tart cherries peek through windows in the rain-slicked, cobbled alley. Cranberry skin. #Bordeaux #chateauFéretLambert #Grézillac #BordeauxRouge #FrenchWine #wine #redwine #bordeauxsupérieur #merlotblend — 2 years ago

Château Labégorce

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 holding up well. Morel, shiitake, crimini, and baked plum, with baked grape for good measure, poppy blossom, squash bread, baked squash blossoms, and bresaola. Rich palate with firm tannin shows oolong, strong graphite core, nutmeg, fine Connecticut tobacco, pepper, dill, and a touch of anise. Bold for its age, and vibrant. Fruits emerge on a long finish; dusty cherry and cocoa, dried black currant, powdered blackberry and cassis.

Fine description

Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1996


Pine nettle, Black plum reduction, cassis, blackberry tart, graphite, rye toast, caraway, dried roses, pecan and earth. Resilient and long, deep throaty echoes of red and black currents on campfire ash, cassis, oak bark, black olive and dried black currant for ever, plus a scribble of pencil.

Very nice, I'm still holding this vintage and 2000.

Two bottles, and both were holding up well, though showing some sediment that careful decant with candle prevented. Still has energy.
