Tasting Notes

Great value--we tasted this beauty in April 2014 and bought it on the spot. Drink now--quite sweet on the palate. Hard to miss on this one. (Clyde Beffa Jr, K&L)

    You might balk at the price and vintage of this wine and think to yourself "there's no way this is a bottle of 30 year old Bordeaux for $40, it's clearly past its prime, or wasn't good to begin with". Those concerns would be justified, but rest assured that this truly is one of those rare deals for an incredible bottle of properly aged Bordeaux. '89 was a nice warm vintage, lending itself to rounder, more juicy wines, and this is no exception. The nose is of plum, leather, and diatomaceous earth, with hints of violet, and wood spice. The palate is soft and round, the years have done exactly what you would want by softening those tannin and bringing out some rich fruit and tobacco notes. If you're looking for good Bordeaux for dinner, or to bring to a party, look no further, you won't find another of this age at this price!

    A neighbor of Poujeaux, this property held back most of their production for many years and now that the younger generation has taken over, the wines have been released. Wow. This is a spectacular buy! Thirty-year-old Bordeaux direct from the property. Old school property from a very ripe vintage; soft and sweet. Elegant but not for the lovers of young California Cabernet. Red fruits and Asian spice aromas. Definitely old school. I love it.
    Drink from 2019 to 2023
