Château Guadet

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Finally get to open this 2008 #chateauguadet on our 11th wedding anniversary. Even an hour after opening it wasn’t ready so after 24 hours it’s lovely - quintessential #stemilion, strongly subtle cassis and forest floor on the nose. Fine well-integrated tannins mid-taste, liberal acidity in the palate and a finish as long as a serpent’s tail. It’s kinda of cool this 175 year old estate was restored to #grandcruclasse status in 2008. — 5 months ago

Château Prieuré-Lichine

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

Complex 2004 dark with earthy notes of cedar forest, tobacco and tar. Still elegant and noteworthy.

What an elegant wine. This #chateaubranecantenac had incredible complexity and balance. All the notes showed as a classic #grandcruclasse #bordeaux. The fruit was sweet, the structure was finessed, and the length was great. #medoc #margaux #cabernetsaugvinon #blend #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Château Brane-Cantenac

CHÂTEAU BRANE-CANTENAC SECOND GRAND CRU CLASSÉ EN 1855 – MARGAUX 2006

A great bottle of wine from a less than idéal year. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot, 4% cabernet franc. Deep, dark ruby colouring, smoky tobacco aromas, fruity - red / black berry, cherry and leather on the tongue. My newest edition to the "cave", truly enjoyed this 2006 vintage.

Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Millésimé Chardonnay

Yeasty, marmalade and butter-biscuity! Lemon peel, olive oil, hazelnut and sesame. Fantastic texture, lively mousse, with a pronounced lemon after initial brioche. Clean as white marble; chalky, with a powdered lemon veracity. Dried violets and a touch of chicory flower. Creamy throughout and truly extraordinary! #GrandCru #grandcruclassé #grandcruvalue #grandcruclasse #champagnes #champagneday #champagnealldamnday #bubbles #bubblesalldamnday #champagnecampaign #frenchwine #blancdeblancs — 3 years ago

CHÂTEAU BRANE-CANTENAC SECOND GRAND CRU CLASSÉ EN 1855 – MARGAUX 1973

Well, the first bottle wasn't so great - decided to open a second. Marginallly better, but not great. Perhaps not ready to appreciate these old vintages.
