White

89 points
A smooth, creamy bouquet, a bit fat, lovely bitters, tasty and juicy.
White - Sweet/Dessert
2010 Château Caillou France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes
87 points
A nice 'green' bouquet, fresh, sweetness still a bit hefty; a bit short, allover a nice wine.
Red
1978 Château Taillefer France, Bordeaux, Libournais, Pomerol
88 points
Spicy, soft bouquet, ripe (of course) taste, good bitters and still quite enjoyable.
Red
2007 Tertre Rôteboeuf France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru
88 points
Still a deep colour, ripe bouquet, nice acidity, spicy even juicy; the tannins confirm the unripeness of the vintage; no top, but very nice drinking.
Red
1997 Tertre Rôteboeuf France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru
88 points
Still a deep colour, ripe bouquet, nice acidity, spicy even juicy; the tannins confirm the unripeness of the vintage; no top, but very nice drinking.
Red
2004 Château du Tertre France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux
88 points
Deep colour, a bit chunky in the bouquet and the taste, tannins a bit dry, serve this wine with a good steak.
Red
2008 Château Gloria France, Bordeaux, Médoc, St. Julien
91 points
A deep colour, a deep spicy bouquet, glycerine, lovely balance and very convincing midtaste; the firm tannins need some years to soften.

Lovely colour, a gentle, soft bouquet with a friendly whiff of nutmeg, juicy and with a polished finish; drink now.

A deep colour, firm style (also the tannins), tasty, a bit one dimensional, but altogether a nice glass.
