Chateau Haut Batailley, 1979

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification
Magnum 1.5L

Very bright and surprisingly even colour for age, no doubt reflecting the relatively low pH of '79 Bordeaux.
Fine red center with a brown hue. The nose has earth, bushes, undergrowth, cedar wood, cigar and vanilla. More juicy, red fruit first on the palate. Some cigar and cedar wood on the midpalate, prunes and earth on the finish. Everything is still coming together in this wine, but fully mature now.

Château Haut-Batailley is a distinguished wine estate situated in the Pauillac appellation of Bordeaux, France. With a history spanning centuries, the estate has earned renown for its production of high-quality red wines.

Chateau Rieussec, 1978

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe
Sweet White Wine

Beautiful copper in colour with bouquet that can fill a room with apricots and gardenia with a hint of ocean breeze. In the mouth it is wonderfully delicious as most desert wines are but what set this apart is it's not so sweet with good firm tannin structure and a bit of honeydew and cinnamon on the back end. Also as with most desert wines the finish lingers for (seemingly) hours and butter, honey, and citrus coating your throat. This wine is absolutely wonderful.

Mahogany core with deep brick rim. The nose is actually better than I anticipated with some dusty black fruits, cedar a touch of game, but it certainly lacks vigour and cohesion. The palate is a little tawdry, slightly hollow with an cooked character that jars against some obvious green berries that found themselves fermenting. Linear towards the dry finish, moderate length.
