Elegantly cellared white BDX. Subtle golden fruits, opulent and fatty texture.

Soft Sauvignon freshness with hints of grapefruit and something almost tropical. A lovely rounded middle with real complexity and a hint of sweetness. Very fresh and refined. And super long.

Truely a great wine, leathery, led pencil, peppery. Tannins totally soft and integrated. Extremely feminin wine. Not the greatest haut brion as it misses a bit of punch but this is an outstanding wine.

First growth SB cuz we country clubbin’. Viscosity and complexity for days. Light amber in the mid day sun, Yeasty wet barley aromatics, candied pear, marzipan and honey (yes! @David L you are spot on there). This isn’t for everybody and it doesn’t have light clean lines but it is a perfect representation of this Bordeaux blend and I enjoyed it while putting horrendously with @Mike R @Shawn R @David L it’s been so damn fun reconnecting with @Joe Lucca @Martin G Rivard @Carl Fischer @Kirk Alexander and meeting Rutgers finest @ADAM STROMFELD

Leather, slate, and blackberry with plum notes emerging on the finish. Not as balanced as reviewed but an elegant effort.

This was the stunner of the night for me. Perhaps just because I never drink white #BDX but holy. The silky texture filled the palate with the soft white linen, acacia flower, melon, juicy Bosc pear, bees wax and lemon curd. A hint of herbaceous was kept it fresh and interesting, and the taste of honeysuckle - Oh my. Curvy, yet elegant. Still can't stop thinking about this wine. Stunning. So lucky to have enjoyed this with family and friends at mY old stomping grounds, #DBK.
