Celebrating #NationalWineDay with a FBF to the singular bottle of wine that just ruined me for life. Not to be dramatic, but this was heaven in a bottle. #moutonrothschild #bordeaux #firstgrowth #mytastebudshaventrecovered

It’s Margaux Thursday! 😂 Wouldn’t it be great if there actually was such a thing? With all this hot weather, we’re keeping cool in the cellar. Come on by. #bordeaux #firstgrowth #margaux #leftbank 📸 @whistlertraveller
1945 Lafite Rothschild is try bottled history. . It’s the end of World War 2. The world is exhausted after years of war and the occupation of France is over. . The last great vintage seemed like it was a lifetime ago in 1929. . The conditions were perfect in 45 allowing #chateaulafiterothschild to produce a sublime wine to celebrate. In fact as you can see, the bottle is special as well, with its etched design, which was not repeated until 1985. . 45 #lafiterothschild is still holding on, with more secondary smoke, tobacco, cedar, forest, herb and lead pencil notes than bright, red fruit. But at more than 70 years, of age, that’s still saying something. And the ability to recreate the history leaves you breathless. .

Tasted 2 hours ago by CORAVIN courtesy of @doudou_bird , thank you. As great as Lafite 96 is the best first growth from 1996 vintage no 1 vino is @chateaumargaux in my humble opinion. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Tasted number of times, last time 4 months ago. Classic Lafite, a mix of tobacco, cedar, fish oil, ink and dark cherry. With a note of smoke, bell pepper and graphite. Palate has partially resolved, layered tannins, lovely tangy, savoury flavour with plenty of freshness. Pleasant to drink today, somehow feels older then I would expect. I think this will soften more over next 10-20 years, I would like more fruit flavour. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> #pauillac #instagood #1996 #lafitexpo #vine #travel #winelover #wino #finewine #wanderlust #winenight #wineoclock #winery #vin #vino #winery #winetour #lovewine #luxury #instawine #lovewine #🍷#rarewine #sommelier #winelover #cabernetsauvignon #bordeaux #frenchwine #1855 #firstgrowth
Thrilled to tag along for a visit to Haut Brion. Perhaps the prettiest chateau I’ve been to, and with a perfectly balanced winemaking philosophy too - classical wines through innovation and technology.
1982 is the first of the modern day vintages. Is its reputation deserved? . Yes and no. There are a handful of mind blowing wines that offer unbelievable tasting sensations. . They are rich, opulent, showy and flamboyant wines, with richness and depth you can taste and feel. . At the top in the Left Bank sits #chateaulatour . Power, refinement, stern and regal, the wine is only now heading towards its peak. . #chateaumoutonrothschild is at the intersection of opulence and strength. There is a sensual element here that provides an unequaled textural sensation. . 1986 #moutonrothschild pairs a wall of tannin with a massive wave of fruit, Asian spice and palate staining richness. You can pop a cork with 3 hours of decanting, or you can wait another decade. . I am sure Latour and #moutonrothschild will both be delivering an incredible tasting experience when they’re 100 years of age, if they’re well stored. .

The 1962 Lafite Rothschild is one of the most elegant 1962 Bordeaux I have tasted, very feminine with lovely tobacco and game. Fruits are still lively but fading slowly. • 91-92/100 • • • #bordeaux #chateau #lafite #rothschild #firstgrowth #winetasting #cabernetsauvignon #france #1962 #winetime #instawine #jammywine_bordeaux #wine
Did you know Château d’Yquem makes a white wine???? Only 10,000 bottles annually is produced of their “Y” (Ygrec - pronounced ee-grek) #chateaudyquem #dyquem #sauternes #premiercrusuperieur #bordeauxblanc #wineinstagram #bordeauxwhite #bordeaux #firstgrowth @ Château d'Yquem #ygrec
Just the name Petrus says it all. Right? . #petrus is the undisputed king of #pomerol . Tasting it is an unforgettable sensation, for its richness and opulence in the palate as well as for its complex perfume of truffle, floral, ripe plums and cherries. . The velvet palate sensations seem to stay with you almost as long as the memory tasting the wine does! .

In all it’s glory... 2010 vintage is the cherry on top 🍒 #moutonrothschild #bordeaux #firstgrowth #pauillac
Jame Suckling 100 point 💯 🍷Latour has made truly great wines in the past two decades—and this is one of the best. It has fabulous aromas of black truffles, currants, raspberry and dried flowers. Mind-blowing on the palate, it’s an emotional and soulful red.

Doing some trading today. Too bad I’m only going to have this @thedomaines Chateau Lafite Rothschild for a few hours! #chateaulafiterothschild #frenchwine #redwine #wine #firstgrowth
Chateau latour 1994 ..🇫🇷 Makes Monday's bearable .. When it comes to latour there is no off vibtage.. the classic hallmark nose of tobacco, ash, black fruits and a long finish.. With a brief decanting the wine is just elegant and smooth .. _________________________________________ #chateaulatour #pauillac #bordeaux
Damn! This 97-year old D'Yquem - the highest rated sweet wine in Bordeaux's history - was like a shot in the arm of butterscotch and honey 💉🍯. Don't even understand how it could still be drinking that good, but who cares. Amazing. 🎯 #Wine #WineLover #Monday #Bordeaux #Dyquem #FirstGrowth #Sauternes #France #1921
[Haut Brion 1970 – Early maturity] Perhaps many people are doubtful with 1970's wine, are they drinkable? The answer is indicated by Robert Parker’s, “it is not to be underestimated,” with a lovely 92 points rating. At the time 1970 Margaux was rated 90 points, Lafite 85 points and Latour 89 points. Robert Parker even thought that she was only at its early maturity and there is still room for further bottling aging. Intense red berries, smoked, cigars and cedar aromas. Medium bodied, very balanced and long finish. We will be closed for The Birthday of Buddha tomorrow, wish you all a lovely holiday!

Not the best vintage of 80’s, although vintage which gives tremendous amount pleasure of fully resolved tannins and juicy freshness. I think Haut-Brion 1985 has to be one of the best if not the best 85 out there. ———————————————————————————— Wine has been decanted for 3 hours and that made a massive difference. Aromatic and open, cedar, dark cherries, cassis, smoke and damp earth with fish oil and ink. The palate has fully resolve tannins which have lovely roundness and density, lovely herbal/earthy aftertaste. Feels at it peak perhaps to be drunk in next 5 unless you have a magnum. ———————————————————————————— #graves #instagood #1985 #hautbrion #vine #travel #winelover #wino #finewine #wanderlust #winenight #wineoclock #winery #vin #vino #winery #winetour #lovewine #luxury #instawine #lovewine #🍷#rarewine #sommelier #winelover #Merlot #bordeaux #frenchwine #1855 #firstgrowth
The 2011 San Leonardo, described as the Sassicaia of the North is intense ruby with an profound nose of wild berries, bell pepper and vanilla. On the palate the wine is full bodied and rounded with abundant ripe red fruit, fine tannins and aromatics that linger on the palate. #tenutasanleonardo #borghetto #trentino #bordeauxblend #villagresti #firstgrowth #instawine #wineporn #sanleonardo #italianwine #n20winery

There she grows! Funny enough, it's the only one that I didn't mark what it is! #firstgrowth
Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2000 or “Gold Sheep” 2015? It might help in the decision to know that the latter has a wholesale price of 10 dollar for a Magnum size bottle. Spotted at Guangzhou Interwine, a local wine trade fair.
Found two magnificent bottles in a collection yesterday #moutonrothschild #1997 and #chateaulatour 1997 ! Beautiful and rare #frenchwine #firstgrowth
Chateau Margaux 1990 😱😱😱 Finest harvest, big bold chocolate mint on the palette and many more savoury notes #firstgrowth #finewine #margaux #1990
Cheval Blanc(meaning The White Horse) is one of the world’s most celebrated wines with their Château situated in Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux. The iconic estate is currently owned by Luois Vuitton. The wine is unique in that it consist of mostly Cabernet Franc followed by Merlot. The estate is closed to public and is by appointment only. Currently undergoing replanting with newer clones and the soil going through rehabilitation. Absolutely breathtaking experience. #sommelier #wine #firstgrowth #grandcru #cabernetfranc #merlot #whitehorse
Unforgettable visit and private wine tasting @chateaumargaux #bordeaux #firstgrowth #wine ... the 2004 grand vin is gorgeous right out of the bottle while the 2009 Pavillon Rouge is still youthful, full of electric energy and better drinking days ahead. Grateful for this undeserved opportunity to tour one of the most historic of Bordeaux chateaux.

2000 VINTAGE LINE UP 2000 Bordeaux wine continues to hold on to its legendary status. It’s important to keep in mind, 2000 Bordeaux wine was the first perfect vintage for both banks in a decade.  You have to go back to 1990 to find a year that excelled!!

2009 winter in Bordeaux was very cold. Pauillac area is about 2 hours far up north from the Bordeaux city centre. I got up at 5am, hopped on the first bus of the day to the Bordeaux city, transferred to tram A, then transferred to tram B, and at the edge of the city, I took a bus to goto all the way to the middle of Pauillac village. I had to walk few hours a day to visit chateau and do the tours and the tastings. It was possible, because I was only 20. . . . . . #bordeaux #throwback #throwbackthursday #france #chateaux #chateaulatour #pauillac #wine #winerytour #bordeauxtour #studentlife #bordeaux2009 #harpandwine #passion #와인 #와인스타그램 #보르도 #프랑스 #보르도여행 #와인여행 #빈야드 #와이너리 #와이너리투어 #샤또라뚜르 #5대샤또 #firstgrowth
1971 Ch. Haut-Brion. A client brought this in to share as he knew it had not been stored properly, but was hoping for the best. Sadly, the bottle wasn't alive. The fruit was tired and very oxidized.
