One fine night back in March with…
Chateau Petrus 1983
Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1975
Barons de Rothschild Brut NV
R de Rieussec 2015
Chateau Petit Village 1996
Chateau D’Armailhac 1989
Chateau Trotanoy 1988
Chateau L’Evangile 1990
There are some labels you cannot enjoy every day as one of those daily wines. (I am not saying it is totally impossible though!) Back in March, I was lucky enough to experience fabulous lineups of Bordeaux Grand Vin at one time. A lot more than two birds with one stone.
As the party with fine people progressed, it got a lot more interesting and unpredictable. When we finally reached the main protagonist, everyone at the table was so joyful and thankful about what was found in the complex aroma and taste!
Chateau Petrus 1983 is filled with aromas such as earth, spice, berries, floral, truffle and chocolate. This silky textured, elegant wine ends with spice and sweet plums.
Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1975 has aromas typically found in Pauillac wines such as cedar, tobacco, wet earth, forest floor and berries. The wine from 70’s always tells me how Cabernet Sauvignon, a variety with rather harsh tannin is able to become incredibly soft and smooth on the palate.
