I must applaud the WCC crew for roping in some Bordeaux for us. I think this is a f!rst.

How tannic are these at this age? And do we get any stats other than Alc?

Lastly, why does F!RST get changed by the woot filters? Really?

It only gets changed when it's followed by punctuation to catch the people that like to post "FIRST" on threads.

Yes, it's good to see some Bordeaux here.

The CT notes indicate little in the way of tannins.. Makes me wonder how much longer they can be cellared.

They're already 8 years old. Why cellar them any longer? They're village BDX; not any serious growth.

I was excited about this offer, but now that I see they're about $10/bottle on winesearcher...but shipping from EU would be a killer.

I'd love to have some rattage on these.

The avg prices on CT don't lead me to believe this is even close to a deal, and I'm only here for the deals.

In for none.

What happened to the days of every fifth deal or so being too-good-to-be-true/irresistable?

Uhm, aren't all those places in winesearcher in Europe? Will they ship it to you for $5? It's already imported to the US for this price.

How about the two plus deals up right now? 3L's of tasty in one and some very reasonably priced reserve syrahs in the other... (I'm on the buy list for the syrahs)

Also, many people don't have access to aged Bordeaux. This is a chance to try the real thing.

It may not be for you, but it certainly still offers something new!

You can buy Marilyn Merlot but there's no such thing as Brigitte Bordeaux. Somebody needs to fix that.... and then make a Jessica Albariño.

Tried lots of aged Bordeaux in Switzerland and was never overly impressed. Found them to be decent like the reviews on CT. If you like bold Cali reds like I do these might not be for you. Of course Ive not tried these particular wines...so who knows.

Bought instantly if only to encourage Wine Woot to bring us more French wine. May I go for a very long shot and suggest finding us some Jura Savagnin, or even Jura Chardonnay ? I would definitely be in for the maximum, and ask all my friends to do the same :D

No, they won't ship the wine for $5. But how much can a plane ticket to Europe be...

Not even close to a good deal. Google the vintages and ordering can save you many bucks.

Uhhh, what? Are you saying this is a bad vintage or that there are better prices available (see above)?

I had a taste of the Guerry at the office but didn't take notes. What I recall- It was dark and powerful... darker in color and fruit then I would expect from right-bank Bordeaux. I'm guessing now, looking at the breakdown, that the Malbec is responsible. It had that earthy/dirty note that I've found in some Bordeaux wines I've tried (a note that I find enjoyable after not tasting it for a while). The tannins were mellower and softer than I expected, before I realized it was an '04.

When I lived near K&L, I would keep my eye out for decently rated/decently priced Bordeaux- and when I found them I enjoyed them.... but they were always young (2-4 years old) and required serious decanting to take the edge off of the young tannins. It's more difficult to find aged wines like these.

As pointed out they seem to be readily available in Europe, so if anyone in France or Belgium want to pick some up and split a case, PM me....

I feel your pain. Personally, I'd like to see some Kaye Syrah, Natalie Portan and David Tannat. Not to mention Whoopi Goldburger, Leon Pinella, Tina St. Marie and Lauren Bical. Shall I go on? :-)

Hi All, I would describe the Tour Blanche as quite tight with strong tannins in place that will continue to mellow over the next 5-10 years. The Guerry has a higher ph and is drinking more soft and satin right now. Both wines I would describe as a nouveau style in that there is some oak and they are fruity, however, there is some distinct dirt and terroir in them. So, rather than Old or new world, I'll refer to them as mid-Atlantic in style.

Tried our first bottle last night... Cotes de Bourg... with my wife's Daube and some Saint Nectaire. My wife, who is quite picky about her Bordeaux's, was very pleased. I'm certainly no expert in wines, but I really enjoyed this bottle. Looking forward to trying the Medoc Cru Bourgeois, but will probably wait a couple more years.
