Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1992

1992 vintage. Has a smoky bbq note that echoes with dried lychee skin, baked grape, plum reduction, blackberry tart, dark croissant and old cinnamon; allspice and oregano under painting. Low texture and light-medium body shows oaken heart, tart cherry, spindly graphite skeleton, cranberry, red currants, pepper dusting, and white strawberry. Tobacco and cold brew coffee, light leather and violet. Could look better at twenty years, but I was surprised it was alive at all considering tough vintage. Not unpleasant, but lacks the depth and breadth characteristic.

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Sleek and dark; stallion-esque. Herbaceous nose boasting rosemary, cardamom, light bay, rich river soil, cocoa shell. Lovely dip into licorice and ripest black currant; graphite threaded seamlessly throughout. Mint circulating through s complex and fulfilling presentation. High theatre. .

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

1982 vintage. Cinnamon and baked cherry nose with specks of pepper; eucalyptus aura shimmering. Rye bread with plum reduction, dusty cedar, dehydrated blackberry, broiled blueberry, reflective graphite glimmers, toasted wheat, holly leaf. Baked bing and raspberry with dried plum skin; black currant reduction with all kinds of legs. Sage and dandelion leaf, dried black mushroom, bitter blueberry, graphite gravy, and a side of pomegranate. So fun to taste this legendary vintage. Seems to be in the perfect place now.

Incredibly austere with horrible green notes. Very bitter. No fruit left here. 2 bottles opened. Both shot. #lafite #bordeaux #firstgrowthbordeaux — 7 years ago

Magnum. Decanted and then put back into a clean bottle. Super tight and smokey at first but opened up very well. Perfect with lamb. #chateaulafite #firstgrowthbordeaux — 7 years ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Big bright soft and gummy plum nose with warm chocolate melting seductively. There is black currant with a green streak, latte but somehow jungle infused, chicory cream, and all in a cedar lined oaken box lined with rose petals. Tart entry spreads to envelope bing and then black cherry, deep currant, blackberry tea, licorice textures, unopened rose blossoms, green tobacco with a sharp, though not hot point, cinnamon, cassia. A young 10, with potential to go further, but what a gorgeous, hungry climber!

Elegantly balanced and so soft on the palate, with candied black fruit, leather, earth, mushroom, and nutmeg notes. #firstgrowthbordeaux #bordeauxwine #frenchie #foodandwinepairing #wineanddine #cabernertsauvignon #blend #leftbankbordeaux — 3 years ago

Château Margaux

Pavillon Rouge Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Very young and powerful for a second wine from the '08 vintage. Impressive but still a baby. #bordeaux #margaux #msclassic #firstgrowthbordeaux — 7 years ago
