Rich fresh aromas of apple, pear, and citrus with a dusty element. Nice crisp wine with good lemon and lean apple flavors. Medium weight, quite good, although perhaps not profound as somewhat primary and just a tad compact. Solid wine.

1998 Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/17/2015 - KenK Likes this wine: 94 points

Classic Bordeaux wine, but seemed to have gotten lost a bit in the shuffle up against 1998 Cheval that was singing and a great 2000 Latour, but this was a damn good bottle and classic Lafite. Dark black fruit quality with a hint of smoke, black cherries and a mineral driven lead pencil element. This bottle seemed a touch more advanced then I would have expected, yet very refined and regal vs the Cheval Blanc that had a richer denser fruit profile. Like a finely dressed solider vs an elegant queen perhaps. The wine was drinking very well and had a nice finish. While a lovely wine on all accounts, a tad disappointed based on the reputation of the 1998 Lafite. Maybe I need to try another bottle?

2000 Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/17/2015 - KenK Likes this wine: 93 points

This has serious upside potential and I really enjoyed this, but still a baby and quite restrained and somewhat primary. After coaxing with lots of swirling, the wine gave us peaks at what it may become. However, on this night it came across somewhat closed. Dense with good ripeness and nice verve, well balanced and hints of spice and black graphite. Good length, but need to flesh out more. I have just a single bottle and makes me want to put away for 5-10 years. If you can't keep your hands off decant aggressively.

1998 Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/17/2015 - KenK Likes this wine: 98 points

This wine was singing and simply popped and poured. Rich exotic aromas of creme de cafe, black cherries, toast, and baking spices. Palate was rich and full with a creamy texture that really showed off dense the red cherry fruits. Layers and layers of depth and wonderfully still fresh and vibrant. A decadent wine, yet nuanced and spicy. Long rich finish and plain old yummy. Keeps you coming back for more and more. This was a great wine and one of my wines of the year so far. Just wish I owned some. Need to fix that soon ;-)

1986 Château Latour Grand Vin

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/17/2015 - KenK Likes this wine: 92 points

Nice wine, yet not in the league of the 2000 version tasted along side. Classic Bordeaux with a regal edge, a fine wine with just a bit of a rustic dark black edge. Mature, although still likely to go a long way before being over the hill. Very nice, yet served blind, not sure I would have guessed a first growth. Fruits are of a dried variety and a tad tired, but don't get me wrong on any other night this would be an impressive wine. Wine is just showing its age. I think the competition tonight did not help (1998 Cheval Blanc, 2000 LMHB, 1998 Lafite, 2000 Latour)

2000 Château Latour Grand Vin

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/17/2015 - KenK Likes this wine: 97 points

Potentially a perfect wine in time, needed decanting and clearly improved as bottle was slowly drained. Just beginning to flesh out, but still a tad tight. This reeks of quality from the first whiff. Dense black fruit aromas with graphite and wet earth. Broad mouth coating richness, yet sleek and powerful. Dark clean pure black fruit profile with wonderful underlying minerality and richness. Needed a little coaxing to find depth of flavors and complex subtle spicy quality. Finish long with wonderful lingering elements. Despite giving great pleasure and beating out the 1986 version tasted alongside, will not touch another bottle for 5 years as I think this will get even better with more age. If you must drink now, decant a couple of hours and you will be very happy.

In good place, showing fresh lively fruity lemon aromas. Palate is rich, with plenty of lovely bite, and striking flinty minerality throughout. Just a tad compact, this seems to be at peak of maturity, but no signs of oxidation, quite fresh and lively.

Lovely creme brûlée aromas with tropical fruits. Lush rich ripe velvety mouthfeel. Quite succulent and dense, round and fat. Very fine, yet missing brightness or acid support, so comes across a bit flabby.

Nice yeasty nose with hints of goldenrod and dandelion. Dry mineral driven with abrasive sweet sour quality. Edgy and somewhat nutty showing hints of maturity. Interesting flavored, but comes across disjointed and strange.

Dark sweet earthy black dusty big rich espresso aromas. Rich ripe dark flavors fat, a tad soft, quite pleasurable and surprisingly rich. A little flabby in middle but comes across almost velvety. Rich finish of dusty earthy tobacco and leather. Really outperformed my expectations, but would still be drinking this up.

Dusty earthy leather, dry tobacco, dried red stone fruits. In nice shape and drink well. Mature and likely on slow down slope, forest floor, full of tobacco and wet soil. Gravelly edge. Soft, smooth, although slightly rustic with an iron ore finish. Drink up, but holding.

Purchased from PC too, shows a bit hard and rustic, somewhat closed, but still highly drinkable. Does not show GC quality, more like. good village. Needs to flush out more and not so sure this will actually occur. Masculine in style and bit compact, but clear Burgundian Pinot.
