Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night.

The most soft and plush wine of the night. I’d enjoy these soon as there isn’t a lot of acidity, or tannin, at this 5yr mark. Very ripe. Jammy/fruit forward...fresh squeezed blueberries and blackberries on the nose. Sweetened plum, bacon fat, boysenberry jam notes on the palate. I called this ‘14, Left Bank, St Julien. Thanks

In hk. Great medium bodied bordeaux. Good by itself. No food needed. For a relaxed evening at home....

Ch. Leoville-Poyferre Dinner; 16 May 2017 at Chez Nous Bistro, Lee, MA

Very nice St. Estèphe, but the Ch. Moulin Riche '14, at half of this price, is a much better bottle on all fronts.

Lovely for a second label. Still very young and charged with primary fruit.

In one word-wow. The integration of fruit, acid, tannins and oak are outstanding. One to hold for at least 5 years. This is stunning.

Huge black currant. Dark graphite. Really nicely balanced. Rich and silky.
