Very, very nice lineup there. Was the SQN Syrah or Grenache? And how was the 95 Margaux against it (assuming you paired the wines like shown in the pics)? Hard to read the Aubert label... which one was it?  And last, which was the wine of the night?

Seriously, I am not trying to be a smart ass but why do you end all your posts with ‘imo’?  The name of the wine is not an opinion right, or am I officially an old and have my abbreviations mixed up?

I’ll hang up and listen.

SQN was the Syrah.

I don’t remember which Aubert vineyard. Label was pretty tattered from being in an ice bath.

2009 Bordeaux was served last night for Christmas Eve dinner.  Pibran and Branaire Ducru.  They were very nice and IMO not too young.  Sorry, no pics.

Branaire Ducru is a relatively good value for BDX. 
 

I still have some 2000s stashed away somewhere.

The BD is becoming Pontet-like as far as pricing goes. IIRC, I paid around $45 for the 2009. Jeff Leve gave it a 95. Current vintages are coming up on $80 at Spec’s.
I recall paying low $40’s for the 2004 Pontet Canet, an outstanding wine. Parker gives the 2008, IIRC, 100 points and now its priced way to high. There’s enough good to great Bordeaux in great years for under $65 that for my palate it makes no sense to pay for the super seconds or other famous Bordeaux. I’ve had many of them and my cheapskate nature makes me pass. IMO, in great years, like 2015 and 2016, Bordeaux is full of great wines for under $65.
