Wine Details & Tasting Notes

I have tasted hundreds of Bordelaise wines over the past 6-months and have found a multitude of great values.

This collection of Bordeaux wines that not only offer amazing value, but will have broad appeal to folks who tend to find "new world" wines more compelling.

These are all still classically Bordeaux, but they have a more open-knit structure and riper fruit due to the fantastic vintages the region saw in both 2018 and 2019. All are all drinking great already and will cellar nicely over the next 4-10 years but there is no reason to wait.

2018 Chateau Jalousie Beaulieu Cuvee Prestige
Opens with blueberry, maple syrup, tree bark and red rock aromas gaining complexity as it opens adding red licorice and lilac perfume then mushroom and graphite. Simply tremendous complexity for this price. Fleshy and muscular on the palate with robust, graphitic tannins and terrific plum and blackcurrant blast in the long finish.
91-points James Suckling - A bright and vivid Bordeaux with currants, fresh earth and flowers on both the nose and palate. Medium body. Firm, fine tannins and a clean finish. Linear and refined. Drink or hold.
90-points Wine Enthusiast - Pure Merlot has produced this powerfully rich wine. Tannins and dark black-plum flavors are still nudging each other for balance. As it develops this wine will be densely textured and rich with fruit and texture. Drink from 2021.
