Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Sure, it might be still a bit young, but close to it’s peak and delicious so why wait, it’s my birthday! Opened up faster than I would have expected for a 2012 Médoc, beautifully balanced cassis fruit, acidity and velvety, well-knit tannins. Elegant but still powerful, some sediment that was easily taken care with decanting. #saintjulien #médoc — 7 months ago

Château Troupian

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Château Saint Bonnet

Cru Bourgeois Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1983


#medoc #crubourgeois I'm thoroughly enjoying this. Aromas of ripe plums, dried cherries, sage and potpourri. Tertiary aromas cigars, tobacco leaf and smoked meats. On the palate there's still plenty of fruit, with a lovely texture that reminds me of plum skins. Medium+ finish. Holding on very well. — 3 years ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Beautiful light ruby color fading towards the rim. Med + complexity and intensity on the nose with wound up but dry black fruit with little sweetness. Bordeaux characteristics.
Palate was smooth and a touch watery with a med finish. The structure was very strong with firm tannins and acid. The wine was still compact and I got the feeling that it's going through an awkward stage and needs some more time.

Very nice!

Le Baron de Malleret

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Smooth, tannin-light #medoc blend that’s somewhat flat on the finish and presents light acidity. Stands up well to oxidation after a few days after opening - really exceeded expectations for a $9 wine at Costco. — a year ago

Château Poujeaux

Moulis en Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Vintage 2012 / a favorite and reliable wine for Sunday lunch with rumpsteak, mushrooms and chicory from the oven. Some development in colour, a mix in smell of cherries and plums, vanilla. Still tannic in taste but not disturbing after aeration. This #poujeaux delivers, it is #moulis reliability. Fine wine from a year one need not to put away a decade before enjoying it. #medoc 48% cabernet sauvignon 43% merlot 6% petit verdot 3% cabernet franc — 2 years ago

Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

2008 Chateau Gloria from Medoc on the Left Bank. Blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. Very nice deep purple/garnet in the glass. Black fruit and cassis, joined by layers of cedar, liquorice and tobacco on the palate. This is a rich, ripe full bodied wine with well integrated tannins that deliver a nice finish. Could easily last another 10 years. Nice bottle of Bordeaux for about $50. Sadly, I only had a single bottle.
