This Medoc can take on quite a few more years, but, like the French, I like power, and this wine has exactly that: there is ample (more than ample, if you are North American) oak, but there is also deep Cabernet Sauvignon fruit - if just a teensy weens...

Tasted October 2008: Terrific wine. Comparable to Chasse-Spleen but more elegant and deeper. An Haut-Médoc classic and quintessential Moulis. Only a shade of maturity in the colour, ripe cabernet-driven bouquet, a creamy texture in the mouth but with t...

Herbaceous and earthy with notes of blond tobacco, subtly sweetly fruited a bit soft up front, nice purity to the mineral tinged black currant fruit, a bit simple but fullish and savory, slightly dry finish (85-86) Read More
Hey everyone, what's the buzz in the US right now about buying Bordeaux 2009 En Primeur?I have never known a vintage to be so 'talked-up' by the press. Investors are hanging on to Parker's index fingers waiting with drooling tongues and wagging tails for it to spout forth its Midas touch. This is THE vintage of the last 100 years folks. Broke...

I am just starting to explore French reds.The few Cotes du Rhones that I have tried all seem to be more appealing the second day after having been opened. Maybe I need to try some older vintages that have had a chance to age? So far, most of these examples have been from 2007 and they seem to be overly tart (tannic?).I just tried a Bordeaux fo...

Was just curious for some input what your favorite everyday value cabernets are that you are all currently enjoying in the under 20 dollar range? Thanks for all your inputs! Read More
I've heard some conflicting reports concerning this vintage, and am yielding to my curiousity concerning it.Has anyone tried any of these wines from 2004? Have any thoughts or opinions on them? It was a dramatically under-reported vintage to say the least (with Parker not even making the trip)- but I'm wondering if politics played a role in mu... Read More
A bit of a vegetal nose from the bottle but this quickly dissipated in the glass. Lots of fruit, nice balance but lacking length. I'm happy that I still have a few bottles. A nice easy drinking wine. Read More

We sampled some 2005 Bordeaux last night, only two of the wines were decanted beforehand and the price point was $25.00 to 35.001. Ch. Haut Briesy-MedocCabernet based, short finish, evolved a little more in the glass, good not great2. Ch de Fieuzal-Pessac Spicy with cloves, moderate finish, after some time some cinnamon qualities and leathery t... Read More
Posting this for someone I met recently, I didnt have a good answer, but that I knew some smarter people I could ask...This question comes up a lot, child born in 20XX, what wine will keep until they are 21? Are there any general rules (red, good tannins to stand up to aging, $30 and up?)? What about specific 2006 recs?Thanks Read More
I am very inexperienced with Bordeux and did not like my most recent purchase. I know that everyone has their own very specific tastes when it comes to wine, but I am attempting to find a really good Bordeaux for under $75 (a bit over $75 is fine too). Another factor is I need one that is drinkable now. Keep in mind that I prefer a red blend dom... Read More
