  • 1986 Château Mouton Rothschild – France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac (1/4/2018)
    WIML94

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of leather, smoke, berries and cherries. Flavors of berries and raspberries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink with a little air to blow off bottle funk and help awaken the wine after a long sleep or continue to hold. In theory plenty of years ahead for this bottle just now emerging from hibernation. (94 points)

  • 2015 Château Haut Beaumard – France, Bordeaux, Entre-Deux-Mers, Graves de Vayres (4/10/2017)
    WIML88

    Tasted blind.

    Yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of grapefruit and orange rind. Flavors dominated by grapefruit. Bright acidity, medium body. Drink now.

    This is obviously a ringer. It is not Chardonnay. Smells and taste precisely like a Sauvignon Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc Blend. (88 points)

  • 2001 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey – France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes (1/4/2017)
    WIML95

    Tasted non blind. Served from 375 ml format.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of lychee, orange foam, almond and quince. Rich flavors of candied orange slices, honey and kumquat. Medium to bold acidity, full bodied. Rich and unctuous on the palate without being cloying. Could be a real stunner some day. Drink or hold but you’re definitely in no rush. Should continue to evolve in bottle for another decade if not more. (95 points)
