A few fun 4th Friday wines from tonight.

A bigger and more rich style of GL than I’m accustomed to, but in a good way. This powerhouse vintage is evident in this wine with so much concentration and complexity. Classical Bordeaux traits of herbs de Provence, leather, cedar and graphite. The core here is deep and dark with ripe black fruits, currant, potpourri and a finish showing sweet tannins. This will cruise for a while, but it’s very good now.

Vintage 2009 - rich bouquet with laurel, cherries, chocolate and mocca. Classic. Beautiful balance, very lively, lots of potential!

Chocolate. Rich and flavorful. Lively fruit. A bit tight. Decanting is a must. Lite cherry in background. Nicely done.

Great year for Bordeaux, so I would have expected more here. But a very good wine nonetheless.
