Tasting some mature Bordeaux Reds
The 12 Bordeaux reds tasted by the 5 blind men Tasting Team Quatjin K last Saturday were:
Ch. Tour Bigorre 2009, Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux, gives dry long-an and plum fruit not imaginable in simple Bordeaux.
Ch. Saint Clair New Sublett Vineyard 2014, Montagne St Emilion, has big portion of neurtral fruit base. Very fresh and ripe, with classic Montage minerality.
Ch Laroze Trintaudon 1997, Haut Médoc Cru Bourgeois, provides lots of nuances and concentration. Lightish apparently because of vintage nature. With lifted acidity, it is a very good wine with bit of structure(tannins, alcohol) and complexities unimaginable with new wines.
Ch. Treille L'Embarré , Lalande de Pomerol 2000. Ripe. Lots of minerality and nuances. Ligtish and easy on palate.
Ch Clement Pichon 1997, Haut Médoc Cru Bourgeois. Dry blackcurrant and plum fruit. Structured wine. Excellent food wine, especially with the Continental type.
