2012 Château Margaux

Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/27/2015 - jibby Likes this wine: 91 points

K&L Bordeaux Tasting (K&L, Hollywood) (K&L Wines, Hollywood): In the aroma, I get sprinkled cocoa and very little fruit. The taste, however, explodes with flavor, including bright cherry and dark chocolate. Perhaps the aroma would open up somewhat with a decant, more air, or a few years to age. Definitely a well balanced wine, though didn't live up to the hype for me.

Fresh air aroma of lime, ocean breeze. Screeching acidity, almost bone dry. Precise, very austere, hard to drink by itself but great with food.

Wachau more

A quality Gruner with concentration and complexity. Tropical, honey, and pear flavors. My main criticism is an overwhelming alcoholic sweetness and low acidity, which detracts from its drinkability and elegance.

Ripe tart cherries and violets. Medium-light body. Spicy-sweet, slightly medicinal finish. A bit monotone, perhaps might improve with a couple years aging to settle the ebullient fruit.

Rays of sunshine. Candle wax, strawberry hard candy. High- acidity, light body, finishes with a thin string of light berry sweetness and sour. Top 2 rose, up there with Lopez which it shares a certain waxy quality.

2012 Domaine Patrick Baudouin Anjou "Effusion"

Chenin Blanc more

11/9/2014 - jibby Likes this wine: 91 points

Razor sharp acids (ph 3.07), lemons, pears, and a hint of sunflower. Laser focus, might be a tad austere for some, I personally love the screeching sourness, but might round out with a couple more years.
