2009 Château Charmail Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend

Kept about two years under condition 1, last two years under condition 2 (see my profile). Color: dark purple. Interesting nose with with forest trees. Taste: red and some black fruit. Medium bodied. Quite soft and round. The tannins were resolved. The 14% alcohol was noticeable, but at the first day not disturbing. At the second it was dominating the taste to much. Ready to be drunk. I am curious if and how this wine will develop. At the first day: really enjoyable wine from a very good year. First day: 88(-89).

    1. in a wine-cooler at 12 degrees C, with ventilation for appropriate humidity.
    2. at a place with a temperature of 12 (winter) - 20 degrees C (summer; summer 2009 and 2011 for at the utmost a couple of weeks 21 degrees C., 2018 three months 23,5 degrees C.), humidity 60-95%, no light, no smells, no vibrations.

A wine made of 85% nebbiolo and 15% freisa. Color: quite light ruby. Nose: fruity with a quite prominent, really nice floral note. Taste: raspberry and strawberry, refined forest floor and a nice touch of vanilla. Quite fresh, with a good acidity, no depth and some nice complexity. A bit light, but really attractive. Ready to be drunk. 87-88.

2010 Domaine de la Punta Corse Red Blend
7/24/2012 - euroyup wrote:
(From a 0,5 liter bottle) Taste: rather vivid dark fruit - blackberries and cherries - quite full, with rather astringent tannins. Medium (to full) bodied, no complexity. To keep for two or three years. Might after that to have evolved in a tasty wine. For now 82, potentially 83-86.

2005 Château Larose-Trintaudon Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend

Really wanted to like this wine because bought a case based on love for the '04... and the reputation of '05... but awkward, green, vegetal, stemminess dominates the nose, maybe oak tea bags too, green on the mid-palate too though nice mouthfeel and the finish is good actually. Dry, lingering echoes of dark fruits. Beautiful balance even though over the top vegetal and suspicions of oak mulch tea partying. All in all like a perfectly balanced cheap ass Bordeaux. Wondering what to do with the 11 remaining bottles...

    8/30/10, 2:21 PM - Because I've bought this wine also, I've asked the chateau in 2007 when to drink this wine. They reacted, that their wine is at its best after 5 years in general. 2005 was a great vintage and keeping it for 5 or 6 years was not a problem. The Guide Hachette advises to drink this from 2012 or 2013. I intend to try the first bottle not before 2011.
