2007 Château Haut Coteau

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/16/2015 - euroyup wrote: 87 points

Drunk a bit to warm. Taste: poivre vert, dark fruit and black fruit with a quite classy, warm note that was hard to describe. An attractive wine, only the finish was quite thin. Ready to be drunk. (86-)87.

2009 Tradition des Colombiers

Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/12/2015 - euroyup wrote: NR

Color: dark purple. Nose: lush fruit of mostly black berries. Taste: lush fruit with a mint-like note and a bit of chocolate. Good concentration and acidity. Soft tannins, that were not fully resolved yet. Like all 2009s to much alcohol for me (14,5%) and because of that quite burning. A good Medoc, that will benefit from one or two years cellaring. Potentially 86+.

1969 Château Léoville Las Cases

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - kingkanu wrote: 88 points

The cork was soaked right through and crumbled when pulling It but the wine is still alive. Cedar and cigar box on the nose, there's just the last remnants of fruit showing on the palate, it is mostly secondary tones now, there's little weight or body here, but from a poor vintage, this is better than I expected, it could be a steal from an auction if all the other bottles are like this

2014 Château Rougemont

Graves Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

7/11/2015 - euroyup wrote: 86 points

Nose: nice, typical sauvignon nose. Taste: some gooseberry, not very grassy. The acidity was a bit sharp. Hard to define, why this is a a bit unusual, but classy, quite attractive sauvignon Graves. 85-86.

2001 Château Cos d'Estournel

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/31/2015 - grokwine Likes this wine: NR

Classic Cos d'Estournel. Plenty of dark fruit and spice here. Tannins still quite firm. Many wines from 2001 are aging precociously. Not this one. Still very youthful and will need perhaps another 3 to 5 years in the cellar. One of the wines of the vintage.

2002 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

Tasted blind. At first, stench of old socks. Dark and minty, with a core of black fruit and some bitterness. Somewhat disappointing and one dimensional.

Bright in colour. Brambles on the nose. Heat. Something creamy once it had a bit of air.
Very spicy on the palate. Soft tannins. Heat on the finish. Wipuite bright and alive. Fresh. Lots of life ahead.
Great qpr.

2002 Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - Wineforth Likes this wine: 92 points

6th time since 2010 and now at its peak. Blackcurrant and oak at first, giving way to farmy undergrowth. Very soft, balanced (now there's something underrated and lacking in so many modern wines) very long and enjoyable. The best you could hope for in an average vintage.

2004 Château d'Armailhac

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - ProfByron Likes this wine: 91 points

Delicious.
Epitome of cabernet-oriented left bank claret. Ripe but not a blockbuster vintage. Cedar and blackcurrant. Lovely weight.

Wish I had this in my cellar.

Has yet to reach maturity.

13%ABV.

2007 Clos Puy Arnaud

Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - Lele Likes this wine: 93 points

Sehr leckerer und eleganter Clos Puy, Kirsche und rote Beeren sind dominant und super samtig (sexy), sogar ein Hauch von Birne dabei, Ich bin begeistert, es lebe der hohe Merlot Anteil von 65% in diesem Wein. Auf jeden Fall eine Suche Wert. Preisleistung top. Da werden wir die nächsten 5 bis 10 Jahre noch Spaß haben. Hoch das Glas.

rich spicy nose, warm fruit with dry finish, good balance, still in the fruit dominated phase but very enjoyable so no real need to wait, has the balance to age gracefully though, so no rush to drink either, QPR very good for original en primeur price of ca. $18

From magnum two of two. The more interesting of the bottles because of its funky notes that were debatably a flaw or a feature. Drink now.

1985 Château Le Boscq St. Estèphe

Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - alanh13 wrote: NR

Perfect storage (Wine Society & recently a Eurocave). Ullage was bottom neck. Bottle and cork was clean under the capsule and cork came out nicely without falling apart. Great nose although a slight hint of corky mustiness -- don't think it's TCA, just a little 30 year old mustiness. Going to leave it breath for a bit then decant.
Decanted and immediately poured a glass. Beautiful! Lovely classic Bordeaux nose, seems much younger than expected. Lots of fruit still there. A little sweet even and some lovely tanginess. Amazing for a thirty year old non-classes growth!
Great with a barbecued steak. Sweet and a touch of caramel yet with some interesting mustiness underneath to at least give the hint that this is more than 10 years old!

2009 Château Moulin Haut-Laroque

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - ChristopherB Likes this wine: 89 points

Belle robe rouge cerise foncé. Beau nez déjà ouvert de cerises noires et un peu de cassis et une touche de réglisse. En bouche, une attaque très franche et bien tannique. Ensuite, il y a beaucoup de fruits noirs et une bonne concentration et longueur fruitée/tannique relevé par une juste vivacité. Pour ma part, ce vin doit encore mûrir 3-4 ans. À ne pas regoûter avant 2017. Mais il a un bon potentiel. Aujourd'hui 88, mais demain 90.

1998 Château Giscours

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - rmcnees wrote: 91 points

Dark ruby colored, medium full bodied, this showed classic Margaux floral violet aromas and flavors punctuating the bright expressive black raspberry and plum tones, showing complex but polished and balanced weight and body, accented by hints of earth and leather, turning to a lingering tongue coating powder dry soft silky tannin layer that filled the mouth with a berry-floral tone that lingered for minutes on the finish.

1964 Château des Tours

Montagne-St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - Xavier Auerbach wrote: 88 points

First bottle from a recently acquired case (at € 11 per bottle the financial risk seemed bearable). Mid to upper shoulder level. The cork had been pushed (or fallen) in at least 2.5 centimetres and was soaked through, but surprisingly it came out in one piece without much difficulty. The wine is surprisingly sound too. Mature, warm, healthy colour, brick red core; warm and vinous nose, earth and wood, vestiges of bright red fruit, hint of fresh mushroom, no off notes; medium weight on the palate, remarkably lively owing to its slightly attenuated but not separated acidity; the finish still has some tannic grip and decent length. Creaking slightly but holding up well. I first encountered this wine 10 years ago when I bought two cases and I am now very much looking forward to the remaining 11 bottles of my new case which do have their corks in the correct place...

Beautiful mature classic safe St. Julien. In the perfect age to drink. The slightly unripe tannins show well the vintage (mint tones). Wonderful typical Barton aromas ..... wonderful... 92/100.

2005 Château Phélan Ségur

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/1/2015 - pavel_p Likes this wine: 91 points

Poured into decanter and started drinking immediately. A deep and concentrated nose of sous bois and dark berries, the palate does not follow through entirely with dark, creamy fruit but also still some wood, fine to medium, drying tannins, relatively short finish. 91+. Would give it another 1-2 years.
