Community Tasting Notes 66

  • Badfish Likes this wine:

    October 31, 2019 - Deep dark garnet core with slight bricking at the rim. Initially this was a little funky but decanting with a couple hours of air cleared that up. Textbook left bank Bordeaux aromas with notes of red currant, forest floor, licorice, cigar box, and slate. The palate is classic in style with earthy red fruits, supple tannins, and supporting acidity. This wine is really quite charming in spite of the vintage with decently sweet fruit and a slightly drying finish. Great effort by this producer.

    September 12, 2019 - Beautiful notes of red fruit, fresh, mineral, lots of graphite, hints of tobacco. I love the flavor profile and acidity here. This is pretty light yet features pure, sweet fruit and a very classic profile. Absolutely pleasurable.

    December 29, 2018 - Both bottles had a flat nose and though tasted ok, I’m pretty sure they were corked. Odd.

    December 22, 2018 - Rich, ripe, cedary - not hugely complex or dramatic, but delicious.

    October 5, 2018 - High-pitched, medium-full bodied, bright, crisp and pepper, with a strong, cedar and leaf notes on top to the sweet and tart, peppery cassis.

    (Chateau Langoa-Barton St Julien) A deep and smoky feel here, with a meaty, iron-clad, claretty style. Very traditional and pleasing. Attractive, bright and fresh on the nose and the palate, but showing some pleasing flesh too. A little plumpness, with bright red fruit, and a good tannic backbone. Precise, fresh acidity, and a nicely integrated feel overall. This will make very good drinking, and very good in the context of the vintage. Last time I sampled this the bottle was riddled with a Bretty farmyardy character, not so here. A very good experience this time.

    (Chateau Langoa-Barton St Julien) Showing a fairly mature colour. The nose is a melange of maturing fruit with farmyardy character and what seems like a large dose of Brettanomyces. Nice mid-weight texture on the palate, but with more dirty farmyard character alongside the sweet, blackcurrant pastille fruit. Rather prominent, disjointed acidity too. Not to my taste at all, and probably down to rampant Brett in the case of this bottle. I'm reluctant to pass definitive judgement here.
