    September 18, 2021 - This wine starts with a nose of smokey oak that remains forward in tasting when it is joined with hints of blackberry, cassis and moss in the background. The tannins and alcohol strike a somewhat discordant note as they noticably present themselves and then linger with the barrel flavors through the finish. Paired well with sirloin steaks served over a bed of sautéed Swiss chard, red onions, kalamata olives and currants with a balsamic vinegar and brown sugar reduction.

    This is a young wine (2019) at an inexpensive price point (I paid less than $12). It has the potential to come together as it ages with the barrel flavors mellowing and blending with the flavors of the grapes and the tannins and alcohol becoming more refined. This wine could reach a 90 in a couple of years, but for now it is very good for its price point. Will buy a couple more to see how they turn out in a couple of years. Best drinkability probably is 2023 to 2025

    September 7, 2021 - With this price who could complain? Nevertheless ratings much over 90 points are delusional. For a French wine it is relatively fruity which I feel covers it’s flaws like a makeup foundation. Which makes it a good wine to sip not so great with food. Dark fruits, cassis, medium acidity. Great QPR and Popular at a Party.

    September 7, 2021 - Château Bourdieu's 2019 is a deep ruby/crimson blend of 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. This particular bottle was Vinturi-decanted and serially tasted over the ensuing three hours, fully expressing itself after the first hour in decanter. Ripe and rich, it is loaded with intoxicating black, red and blue fruit on both the nose and palate. With a supporting cast of baking spices, lavender, mocha and licorice, it is hard to put down the glass. Despite its ripeness, this medium-bodied red stays in check, with restrained alcohol (listed as 14.5%), excellent freshness, judicious oak and medium-weight, fine-grained tannins. Plump on the mid-palate and lingering nicely on the finish, this Right Bank Bordeaux is a joy to drink. That said, if tasted blind, I would have guessed it to be a New World Merlot or Merlot/Cabernet blend. With its broad appeal and attractive price in mind, this would be one to purchase by the case and serve as the red wine option at a cocktail party. I suspect that this precocious wine will be at its best during its first decade. Drink now-2029.

    August 29, 2021 - The score of 97 was from 2020 Decanters World Wide Wine awards which gave wines that reached the "Platinum." Our group enjoyed the wine and thought it was is good QPR. It needed an hour of air to open up but can definitely be enjoyed now.
