  • Ginestet Margaux 2004

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine a while ago from a wine merchant in Sussex and I ... I paid around £10 for it. Margaux is the largest AOC on the Medoc peninsular and the home of 18 cru classe in the famous 1855 classification. My bottle is not one of them but a negociant wine from the House of Ginestet. but I have been unable to find out much de... Read More

    Wine review by WineSnob53


  • Château Kirwan 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Light, high-toned and yet with a sweet edge to the decidedly herb tinged fruit on the nose. This is cool, compressed, elegant and focused in the mouth; not a big wine but classic. There is a real sense of delicacy here, and lovely purity and transparency on the palate leading to a long, ripe finish covered with soft tannins and juicy acids accen... Read More

  • Rauzan-Gassies 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Herbal, smoky, and a bit tarry on the nose. This is bright, fresh, and somewhat simple on the palate. A bit front loaded in the mouth, this thins out but shows more detail on the back with flavors of herb, light fruit, and subtle oak coming together on the short dry finish. Unremarkable. 84pts Read More

  • Chateau Dufort Viviens 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, stemmy, and quite herbaceous on the nose with some smoked paprika and dried bouillon aromas. Soft, juicy, and simple in the mouth though with bright, fresh blackberry fruit that carries an innate seethes. Right and fresh with an innate sweetness to fruit. Showing fairly ripe and a bit fruitcake spicy. 86pts Read More

  • La Bastide Dauzac. Andre Lurton 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit herbal on the nose with the oak slightly prominent at this stage. There's good acid here but this starts out on the palate a bit soft, roundish. Nice complexity in a fairly savory style, this offers modest scale with classic Bordeaux proportions and a fine core of black currant and black berry fruit supported by dry fruit tannins and finis...

  • Chateau Labegorce 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and reticent on the nose, which shows assertive nutty oak a bit heavily. Smooth and easy going in the mouth, this has good black currant and an attractive bit of truffle accent note in a style that is plump and fresh but this lacks some mid-palate complexity. Really lovely, easy going texture is attractive. 88pts Read More
