Daniel P. Drake

For the weekend I have opened the 2010 Château Fleur Haut Gaussens Bordeaux Supérieur. 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon 14.5% Alcohol.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, cassis, tobacco, graphite, tar, mocha and fresh earthy loam.

On the palate is black cherry, blackberry, licorice, tar, some tobacco, an earthy component and there is a heavy woody oak but not over powering.

This is a full bodied wine with medium + acidity and high grippy tannins that takes us to a long french oak finish. Please have a good weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Bordeaux superior from the fantastic 2009 vintage , a great value for money (about 13$ here in Switzerland). This blend is Merlot driven with 85% Merlot, 5% CS, 5% CF and 5% Malbec, modern Style. Coming from a small chateau who is producing wine for the 4th generation. It has a deep dark color, a lovely nose full of black fruits, black current and a touch of smoked oak and coffee, medium to full body with dry tannins and good acidity. Long dry finish. Needs still a bit of time. My score 87, drink to 2019.

Septembre 2015 - Décevant, j'aurais probablement dû attendre un peu avant de l'ouvrir

Ruikt geweldig vol, houtig en gezellig. Na decanteren ontzettend fruitig en vol. Blijf lang hangen en is een prachtige combi met Beef Wellington.

Smooth to pair with dinner, a little dry but nice light spice to it.

At budoshuka Kichi Fruity, light, good for the first choice at dinner with appetizer. Not good with heavy meaty food. Tannin is kind of weak.

Good, not great. Perhaps too much charred oak.
