Delicious. Still young. With two steaks (Highland and Piemontese). Held its own against Karen's 1982 Calon Segur.

Maybe a little generous with score, but a decent wine from a superior vintage. Smooth tanins, nice berries, god length. Not the layers and depth of other margauxs, but not bad for money. Not sure this one has legs to go for many years.

Great for the vintage. Decanted and drunk immediately. Deep, ruddy red color. But the nose is what grabs you -- classic, perfumed, rich berry, saddle, and cedar, absolutely lifting from the glass. Similar solid favors. Delicious if not particularly elegant. Excellent now, but 2-4 years from peak., I'd say.

1982 Château Talbot

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/23/2015 - Endodr Likes this wine: 93 points

This bottle of Chateau Talbot is a killer wine and the oldest Bordeaux that I have ever tasted. When I opened the bottle, I noted that the cork was completely saturated with wine, and was loose. Luckily, there wasn't any leakage or evaporation, as the level of the wine was in the bottle neck. The cork crumbled with the corkscrew, and I had to strain the wine into a decanter. It had a deep garnet color with a slightly orangey rim. Initially, it's nose was austere, mostly musty earth. After an hour in the decanter, I was surprised by its aromas of dark fruit and menthol. The wine was incredibly smooth tasting with blackberries, cassis, leather, and crushed slate. At this time, it is fully mature, well integrated, and drinking well. It is medium to full bodied with fully integrated tannins.

What an improvement this estate has undergone! This 375, with an hour's decant, expressed classic St Julien flavors, with a strong backbone, plenty of dark cherry,cassis and cedar, some moss and earthy tones to be sure; a delightful experience, especially given the less than stellar showing in decades past.

1994 Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/23/2015 - kenv Likes this wine: 93 points

Dinner with Bob H and Elaine (Chez V): [Brought by Bob H. Decanted around 5pm.] On first opening, it is tight as a drum, showing almost nothing. After 2 hours in the decanter, it has opened up as a complex and lovely wine. Nose of sandalwood, licorice, camphor, and black fruits (plums, cherries). Still tannic in the mouth, but with lots of ripe juicy black fruits in a long finish. Appealing now, but may improve further with another 5 years, and drink well for another 10 or 15. 93-94 points.

2000 La Bastide Dauzac

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/23/2015 - jonahfactor Likes this wine: NR

Dull red with some bricking at the disk, but a lovely necklace. Very extracted with a rich mouth feel. Has dropped most of its fruit, with briery blackberries and faint blueberries all that remain in the bouquet and on the palate. Nice pencil lead and toasty oak, but the finish falls short. Still presents some gritty tannins; they likely won't resolve further. Time to pop the rest of these.

A very enjoyable Saint-Estephe bordeaux! It was enjoyable right at the open and was terrific over 3 hours. Eucalyptus and cassis on the palate. The tannins were wonderfully integrated.

Double-decanted at 8am, left the cork out and served at 4pm. As with my previous experience here, this is just fantastic. Leaves me at a loss for words as I choose not to formulate a tasting note, but rather to take it all in. This is gorgeous; I want more, lots more. highly recommended

Served non-blind.

Verticale du Château Margaux: Un beau nez frais de sous bois, un peu de thé.
Très belle bouche ronde et fine, ce n'est pas un vin de structure mais un d'élégance. Superbe équilibre pour un vin plutôt tertiaire, mais délicieux. Un vrai grand vin, je soupçonne qu'il était encore meilleur il y a 10 ans. Le 1983 ? 95 pts
