From the Cellar

Barde Haut meets Pirramimma (France / Australia)

25 Oct 2016


(March 13, 2016) ... Out for dinner and I really decided to dig into the back of the cellar for these two wines: starting with one of the older bottles from my cellar a Chateau Barde-Haut 1999 St Emilion, and it's pretty much where I would expect it to be showing both secondary and tertiary characteristics: earthy, black licorice, sour cherry, dried leaves, spiced-dried-raspberry, along with cedar and pencil shavings.  I then stepped it up five years and went Down Under for a bottle of Pirramimma 2004 Petit Verdot, this too was pretty amazing stuff with the aromas of coffee, blackberry, and black cherry leading to a palate of rich dark fruit along with smoky notes, a tinge of vanilla and coffee on the finish.
