Insert the usual refrain about how Bdx blanc doesn’t get enough props. This had really nice cut with lemon, tangerine, lychee, dried grass and a nice dollop of vanilla bean and butter on the back

Excellent Graves. Must get more. Pitch-black profile, with piercingly deep blackberry fruit and the classic Graves scorched character manifesting itself in a savory element reminiscent of the charcoal sear on a dry-aged steak. There is also a nice clenching grip of bell pepper giving it an old-style cabernet feel even though the fruit is anything but austere. I really like the style of this - classic structure but with an intense, deep expression. Even the dried drips of wine on the label are a deep purple/black.

Classic angular, hint of green peppers, refreshing Bordeaux.

Excellent and relatively classic Bordeaux from Pessac. Last had this nearly 5 years ago - the age has been good to this. In a pretty good place, though I’ll keep a couple bottles to see how it develops. Meaningful tannins, great fruit, good acid. Perfect with the platter of steaks and lamb chops in the background :)

Fantastic QPR, one of the last great yet affordable wines, get your hands on it if your cellar is not full yet!

Stunning! Full bodied, completely integrated on all aspects. The merlot is quite present but in a “I want more” way! Drink, the wine is in a perfect spot right now!
