A lovely wine, not terribly complex but thoroughly enjoyable. Well integrated tannins. Deep red in color, I'd guess this will continue to be at its peak for another 4-5 years.

Good, but a bit thin, I thought. Cherries. Good structure to it but I wouldn't write home about it.

I don't know what to say. Past its prime? A faint echo of what a good bordeaux should be? But Talbot always disappoints me so it's probably me and not the wine.

2003 Clos du Marquis

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/17/2015 - ctc wrote: 92 points

Deep red color, beginning to show some age around the edge. Lovely nose of red fruit, cassis, pencil shavings. The tannins are well integrated, charming mouth feel and a good, medium finish. Enjoyed this very much.

What a great wine. Still garnet red, beautiful nose, still tannic but beautifully controlled and a long finish.

1999 Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

2/20/2015 - ctc wrote: 90 points

A medium bodied wine with a pleasant if light bouquet of red fruit, brown around the edges, well made but light in structure, very soft tannins. It had a lot of cherry flavor and reminded me of a Burgundy more than anything else. Probably should have drunk this before now, it's a bit beyond its prime.

2009 Château La Cardonne

Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/3/2015 - ctc wrote: 90 points

Young, tannic, very full nose and a lot of red fruit in the mouth, very enjoyable for what it is. I expect there will be years of good drinking ahead as it matures. A great "find" meaning a good Bordeaux at a very modest price.

1995 Château Léoville Barton

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/2/2015 - ctc wrote: 92 points

Good but disappointing, not the usual flair that Léoville-Barton normally has. I've read that others are waiting for it to come together better but after 20 years I just don't see that happening.

9/17/2014 - ctc wrote: 93 points

Still young and tannic but definitely smoothing out, the '04 Baron is very dark and purple. It needs decanting or time in a glass to develop and has a lovely nose. Cherries. A very good length.

1996 Clos du Marquis

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend more

8/29/2014 - ctc wrote: 90 points

Younger than I was expecting, still mostly red on the rim and mildly tannic, I decanted for an hour. Red fruit dominates and it has a pretty bouquet. A medium length finish. All told, a lovely wine, smooth and well balanced. That said, I'd been hoping for a bit more than it gave.

I normally don't think much of Château Gloria but this was enjoyable. A good example of what a decent Bordeaux is like.
