2005 Château Lascombes

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/25/2015 - Purple Tooth wrote: 94 points

This feminine Margaux is well in the middle of phase one, and drinking oh so beautifully..Full of vigor and class. Has developed a tobacco nose that transitions to mild espresso and truffle on the plate with perfect sweetness, complete balance, elegance, and finesse. The finish is quite long and the dry grip make it so light footed and sexy...This is a "beautiful" wine.

Really delicious, ripe black fruit, mineral and fresh, hint of smoky oak, lovely balance and weight, hint of "animale", good depth, elegant style and grippy tannins, pure and transparent, energy and drive; good length.

Bricking at rim. Didn't quite come to life following 2.5 hour decant. Some earthy tones and leathery back end, but overall not a very interesting bottle. The '90 Palmer drank alongside was better.

Quite elegant still but at end of the rope...Lovely aromas of cedar and earth, followed by interesting acidity that is just about to take the helm and finish the long beautiful life this wine has had. A must drink alone, delicate bordeaux. Drink yesterday.

Ok... It so not a typical white Wine. Not shure what it is. But i like it! A bit too heavy for a summer Wine. Cremig, opulent, schwer, mineralisch. Fruchtig. Intensiv. Birne. Pfirsich.

2014 Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

4/1/2015 - PanosKakaviatos Likes this wine: NR

Sauternes and Barsac 2014 in barrel (Bordeaux): Very intense and complex aromatics combine stone fruit, botrytis spice and some vanilla and even espresso (very subtle) coming from the barrel aging no doubt. There is a peppery brightness that balances the energetic palate. Yet another example of an always rather rich styled Sauternes that excels in 2014 given the acidity of the vintage. Full bodied and a long finish. Bravo! 92-95

When you drink this wine, you can imagine what the 2010 is going to be like in 10 years...This is absolutely fantastic. In absolute perfect balance, with nothing poking out. Roasted coffee, lots of exotic black fruit, and a long and caressing finish with hints of cedar...Just drinking beautify. A great, great introduction to Bordeaux for a good friend.

4/1/2015 - PanosKakaviatos Likes this wine: NR

Sauternes and Barsac 2014 in barrel (Bordeaux): Once again a light on the feet Barsac in 2014, with floral aspects as well as citrus. Certainly barrel aging will increase density - that's the point - and I think it will turn into a lovely wine. Medium body and medium plus finish with lift. Very fine. 90-92+

Nose: The nose shows off a ton of complexity and balance with brioche, white fruits, loads of minerals, pears, apples, and toast notes.

Taste: Full bodied with medium/high acdidity. There is a real refinement on the palate along with brioche, pears, apples, toast, and all sorts of mineral tones. The acidity is striking and shows off the youth of the wine.

Overall: This is certainly on the young side, but it is ever so lovely. This will be extremely interesting to try in a few years when it has gained even more age.

A lovely and very well aged wine, just on the other side of peak, starting to lose some of the fruit it was so sought out for...Roasted coffee and violets...delicate and serious. Drink now or resist for 3 to 5 years...I think its ending phase 2....

Very nice if not spectacular in any way. Could use more acidity for my taste, but the yellow fruits and honey provide a richness and enough acidity to go well with a picnic of cheeses and pates and Jamon Iberico.

Sauternes and Barsac 2014 in barrel (Bordeaux): From the first sip, this barrel sample was marked by a lovely opulence marked by distinct spicy notes from botrytis. A full body but vibrant, marked by the acidity of the vintage leading to a long finish: excellent Sauternes. 92-94

Once again...Very enjoyable alone...Lots and lots of truffle and tuber on the nose with lively grip. Still benefits from airing...I would not pair this with other wines because its so delicate and it will get bullied. Drink with meal, you will not regret. Besides, the bottle looks so damn nice on the table...

Was positively impressed by this wine. It had elegant aromas of blueberries, cassis, plums, spice, minerals and cedar. Its medium bodied stylish and silky palate has plush fruit, good oak and spice on the attack, and savoury elliptical freshly fruited middle. Ends longish, aromatic and rolling. A balanced wine.

Nose: There is a real toastiness to the nose along with white fruits, brioche, red apples, berries, and some pear tones. There is excellent depth along with a youthful verve.

Taste: Medium/Full bodied with medium/high acidity. There is a noticeable tartness to the acidity along with white fruits, brioche, red apples, pears, and some toasty notes.

Overall: This is a poised and elegant young champagne. The Pinot noir shows through and it makes for a really enjoyable bubbly.

Sauternes and Barsac 2014 in barrel (Bordeaux): Both rich and savory, with Barsac elegance and a precise aspect that is very appealing. As with other 2014s, a touch on the lighter side, with the acidity coming to the fore. Very fine and a medium plus finish. 91-93
