DRY PAPER

Pichon Baron, the male version of the Pichon, would he be chauvinistic enough tonight?

A whiff and I was like uh-oh, sensing some trouble ahead. The whiff was dry paper, which has never occurred before in my Bordeaux drinking history. Really strange nose, I was worried it maybe having a weird phenomena. A quick sip and I was relieved. It tasted exactly like most vintages of Baron, the chauvinist character was naked. Big, broad and deep in taste, absolutely stunning pleasure. Love it a lot! ”

Sensational, Pleasurable!

“Revealing some fantastic potential! Deep, mature with loads of great ripe fruit flavour! Intense palate of dried red fruits, raspberries, oak and sweet nose of spice, cassi, chocolate. Full, rich and tannic finishing. The tannic gradually goes off and comes a new level of complexity and depth, very intriguing of this wine! Polished, firm and weighty wine but are very well balanced! This 75s bottle is one of the best Mouton of the 70s decade! Must try!”

Château Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1990

“Parker was kinda right on awarding Mouton Rothschild 1990 a score of 84, although I totally pity Pichon Lalande 90 with a pathetic score of 79, as I think Lalande would have done much better than this Mouton 90.

Ripe fruity nose, with not much of Pauillac character. The palate was where the disaster began, it was probably one of the most diluted and worst Pauillac I’ve ever had for 1990, even fifth growth wines were better. How can a first growth get it so wrong from a fantastic 5* vintage is beyond me. “

Château Tour du Pas Saint-Georges Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion 2012

“ST EMILION CHARACTER

St Emilion produced wines primarily of Merlot or Cabernet Franc, rarely it used Cabernet Sauvignon. As such, a way to detect St Emilion wines is actually the nose and the palate. If it’s sweet, certainly has high Merlot in it, if you smell capsicum, certainly means Cabernet Franc.

This wine was served blind, and I can nail it as St Emilion. Light fruity nose with red berries (merlot based). Palate was bright red fruits, young, chewy, sweet and very overpowering. Not bad! “

“ELEGANT SMOKE

Normally we don’t like smokers, and cigarettes and cigar smoke are intolerable to many including myself, but I can smell this Mouton 95 smoke all day and all night without being bothered by it. The smoke was healthy, elegant, and with great finesse, which was similar to the wine body itself. Superb complexity and great finesse with the palate, it may not be immediately noticeable to beginners, but I can taste the potential. In 10 years time this vintage is going to taste great. Potentially 5*”

“BIODYNAMIC

“I loved the 2010 vintage of this wine a lot, and it won some local awards lately. Since 2013 this label has turned biodynamic and it didn’t have the same character of the 2010, but still offered a lot of pleasure.

Strong alcoholic nose, inky, violet, with slight floral fragrance.

It was a big wine by any standard; rich, bold, and big, in fact my notes said it was giant wine! Sweet and forward, ready to drink now as it’s high in Merlot composition. “

Almost 5 stars

This wine was really impressive, in fact any Bordeaux 2005 really never failed to impress me. On a first pour and first few sips, I have already made up my mind that this deserved to be >95. Read on why 4.5 stars.

The first nose was Margaux alike: coffee, ripe fruits. Palate was really stunning, rich, bold and elegance without the power you’d expect from a powerhouse. It was really the vintage play here. The 4.5 stars was due to slightly fading ending, it didn’t carry towards the end.
