Major Bordeaux Talk Alert 🔑🚨There's been alot of talk about the $90k that Jay-Z spent on wine this past weekend - We've tasted these so let's take a closer look at a couple of the bottles they had: 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild - Tannins do a body good. ✊🏽 Many of the best Bordeaux's were made to age for a VERY long time - 36 years old and still a very balanced, smooth, and fruity taste. Even after you have the $2k to spend on a bottle, finding it is the next issue. 1982 was a legendary year in Bordeaux and these are hard to come by. 1986 Chateau Mouton Rothschild - Mouton makes incredible wine, and while this isn't considered to be an unforgettable year like the '82, this wine still has great structure. If you find it, DRINK IT. Sincerely, Wine and Hip Hop - The Wine Authority for the CULTURE #PremierCru #Culture #JayZ #Wine #HipHop #BetOnYourself #Bordeaux #FirstGrowth #Mouton #1982 #1986 #Art

1974 Mouton; the Chateau’s second vintage as a First Growth. Certainly past its prime but soft tannins and plenty of umami flavours make this bottle much more enjoyable than Parker’s 69 points would suggest! . . #moutonrothschild #pauillac #firstgrowth #robertmotherwell
A pristine case of 1994 Latour - arguably the wine of the vintage. Its “superb purity, fabulous precision and remarkable length” (94 RP) once again show how Latour can defy the challenges of a vintage. £4300 per case. . . #chateaulatour #latour #firstgrowth #pauillac #1994 #owc #bordeaux #finewine #investmentwine #wine #instawine #canernetsauvignon #merlot
Chateau Latour The Quintessential Pauillac . #chateaulatour embodies everything great about #pauillac . . The wine is firm, even a bit stern, but you enjoy a type of regal tannins, refinement, length and then, there is all that density of ripe cassis, blackberry, cedar and tobacco leaf. The finish is rustic, but the wealth of complexities, volume and length takes your mind off that part of the wine. Fully mature. This is the wine of the vintage. .

I won't even write a description for this. My first 3L of 2013 Chateau Lafite Rothschild :))
Ten years later, #bordeaux vintage #2008 tastes better as they get older. In a recent article by @nealmartin123 wrote, “the 2008s are much better than 2007 and 2011 thanks to that long hang time, which means they have plenty to offer in terms of complexity, freshness and fruit intensity. They are not structured behemoths à la 2010 that oblige the patience of a saint and yet they have sufficient backbone to merit medium-term cellaring and age with style. With a decade already on the clock, many of the top wines are drinkable but will mature and evolve over the next 10, 15 or at its peak, 20 years.” (photo credited to @vinousmedia ) So if you’re a collector of the 2008 vintage then it’s time to #uncork one and sharing your #tastingnotes with us! #chateaulafite #number8 #happychinesenewyear #evercohol #premiercru #firstgrowth #hongkong #winelovers #winecollector

Wine for Chinese New Year eve dinner First Lafite in life #lafiterothschild #2001 #chinesenewyeareve #firstgrowth #wine #hk
Happy New Year 🐶 🇨🇳🔴to all my Chinese friends, 'Gung Hei Fat Choi’. What better way to celebrate than with Au Yun, China’s 1st Growth wine in collaboration with LVMH. Produced in the foothills of the Himalayas near the legendary city of Shangri-La. This first vintage is a blend of Cab Sav & Cab Franc and is packed with aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant and a little 5 spice. Supremely fine on the palate with an incredibly long finish. #auyun #lvmh #1ercru #firstgrowth #china #shangrila #chinesenewyear #gungheifatchoi #yearofthedog #himalayas
This was by far the best example of a 1990 Margaux that I’ve ever had. This wine is all elegance and class. #chateaumargaux #margaux #bordeaux #cabernet #france #redwine #wine #wineporn #instagood #instawine #firstgrowth
Interesting comparison of Yquem vintages from different eras. The 2001 will be a future star, but the concentration and intensity of the 1983 was impressive. Both need a century of cellaring. - - - - - #yquem #sauternes #bordeaux #vintage #grandcru l #wine #winelovers #vin #vino #paris #france #rare #winestagram #finewine #wein #winetime #ワイン #红酒 #紅酒 #포도주 #firstgrowth #premiercru #winetasting #degustation
Interesting Bordeaux juice tonight to say the least. Poured 71 Chateau Latour Mag and 82 Mouton Rothschild. 71 was a terrible low yielding season. Latour still made good wine it's just not considered great! 82 was the opposite. It's considered to be one of the best vintages in Bordeaux. All of this makes a big difference in price. The 71 Mag is retailed at $700-800 and the 82 is well over $1,500. Ch Latour 82 is prob retailed at well over $2,500. How would you mark up these bottles in your establishment?. . . #lasvegas #lasvegasstrip #instavegas #wine #winetasting #bordeaux #bordeauxwine #instawine #firstgrowth #luxurylifestyle #luxurylife #history #historylesson #winelover #winegeek #sommelier #youngsomm
[Mouton 2000] Apart from the Jacky Truchot Charmes Chambertin VV we mentioned yesterday, the other wine we drank together was the Mouton 2000. They are both extraordinary wines in so many different ways and hardly comparable. The Mouton was opened an hour or so before dinner, it started showing well when the main course came (glad it was a long dinner!). It has delicious dark fruits, youthful tannins and a lot of potential. The luxurious glass bottle itself is a masterpiece, featuring the “Augsburg Ram”, originally a chased silver-gilt drinking vessel created around 1590 by Jakob Schenauer, a German master goldsmith. 昨天我們分享了Jacky Truchot的酒,今天再分享當時一起品嚐的另一瓶酒,Mouton 2000。 這兩瓶酒在各方面都均有非凡表現,實在難以比較。 這瓶木桐於用餐前一小時開始酒醒,到享用主菜時木桐大致上已經適合飲用了。豐富的黑莓味,加上單寧表現年輕,當中充滿無限可能性。 木桐自1945起,每一年的酒標也是由不同藝術家設計。但2000年的酒標比較不同,酒瓶本身也已經是藝術品。這小公羊圖案源於一隻於1590年德國製的刻金酒杯:奥斯伯格小公羊(THE AUGSBURG RAM)。不論是瓶身的酒莊名、年份、簽名及紋章等等都是採用金絲裝印刷,酒瓶外形也特別改動過。 #wineoclock #finewine #winedinner #winetasting 🍷 #wine #winelover #winelovers #instawine #instagood #lovelife #drink #drinking #vgc #vintagegrandcru #redwine #winenight #foodandwine #winewednesday #redwine #finewine #luxury #mouton #2000 #bordeaux #grandcru #firstgrowth #rothschild #chateaumouton #chateau
Let's just say this is our favourite wine shop in Paris, one of the oldest too. They have an amazing selection that are very well priced. You can also take your purchases and open them in the bar at the back with no corkage to pay, and enjoy with some meats and cheeses, perhaps even some snails 🐌 too. Well worth a visit. #burgundy #bordeaux #firstgrowth #firstgrowthbordeaux #chevalblanc #romaneestvivant #domaineromaneeconti #DRC #pertus #margaux #lafiterothschild #moutonrothschild #art #wine #vino #winelovers pomerol #chateaumoutonrothschild #chateaupetrus #chateauchevalblanc #chateaulafiterothschild #millionaire #billionare #wealth #topwines #topwinebysimple @caveslegrand #liquidopulence

1999 Chateau Haut Brion, Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux, France • With endless power rippling out of the clear black fruit core, Haut Brion 1999 put on a lot more weight without losing any of its elegance. Possibly a style that only Haut Brion could achieve. 1979 and 1985 are already magic but here is one more vintage to compete. Deep, round and full bodied with fresh minerality led by scorched graphite. Looks like it will last for another 10-15 years. Long finish and sweet tannins • #HautBrion #1999Vintage #ChateauHautBrion #PremierGrandCru #FirstGrowth #GrandVin #PessacLeognan #Bordeaux #FineWine #BordeauxWine #Sommelier #TastingNotes #WineLover #WineTasting #WinesOfInstagram #Wine 🍷 #WineTime #🍷#Winestagram #InstaWine #WinePorn #LoveWine #红酒 #葡萄酒 #BestWine #WineCollector #WineCollection
My kind of history!

#oldschool @spectrumwineauctions ... Original @mrhitime receipt for 67 bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild 1982 for $75.78 per bottle (60 of which were at $74.95 with the case discount), now on the block at @spectrumwineauctions (Lot 63). Today the ‘82 tends to fetch about $2,500 per bottle at auction, so if you bought this wine in 1985 at $75 per bottle and sell it today, you are in for an approximately 3,233% return. ... #invest #bordeaux #lafite #finewine #wine #pauillac #lafiterothschild #cabernetsauvignon #firstgrowth #bluechip #thebest #collectibles
#tasting with @gary.faust ... The ‘85 Chateau Margaux was WOTN for our group and showed how well this First Growth performs in an outstanding vintage. Gorgeous and expressive on the nose with aromas of violets, blackberry, currants, black cherry, graphite, pain grille and earth. On the palate, the wine was full-bodied with well-integrated tannins and medium acidity. The sweet flavor of creme de cassis was just stunning and carried over to the long, satisfying finish. I’ve recently had the pleasure tasting Chateau Margaux from 1986 and 1995 as well. Qualitatively, all three are excellent. The ‘85 is drinking well now and will continue to do so for quite some time. The ‘95 is vibrant and remains youthful. Approachable with a decant, this will give decades of pleasure. The ‘86 DEMANDS more time! All great wines, but at different places right now. ... #chateaumargaux #bordeauxwine #premiergrandcruclasse #bordeaux #grandcru #firstgrowth #wineicon #finewine #winestagram #wineporn #wineoftheday #pebblebeach #foodandwine #wineanddine #hitimewinecellars #hitimewine @mrhitime
