Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

9.3

Fantastic concentration and balance. Opaque purple color with nose of cherry liqueur, roses, dark chocolate and hint of sous bois. Persistent palate with dark fruits and floral elements that drives to a long finish. This is still tightly wound and needs time in a glass or decanter but will sing with a few hours of air. — 13 days ago

Château Talbot

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Delicious aged Bordeaux. Little lighter than expected and not quite as robust as the Lascombes, which came next — 6 years ago

Domaine de Chevalier

L'Esprit de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

1990 left bank tasting Le Vineur. Still alive, fresh and drinking well. Not the depth or complexity like some other wines in this flight but in much better shape than the Lascombes. Nr 5 — 2 years ago

Château Prieuré-Lichine

Le Cloître Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

I want like this wine more. Why? I own more of it and lascombes and lichine are some of my go to Margauxs. This took a solid 2 hours to open. Upon opening nothing on the follow the flavor was all up front and heavy on the alcohol. After two hours the fruit showed up, medium bodied and a touch dry on the finish. Btw went to a 2016 Bordeaux tasting. Bees knees! not saying you can justify the price but the 16 of lichine was great — 4 years ago

Château Lascombes

Chevalier de Lascombes Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Dark, almost black in color and the intensity of fruit is thus unsurprising. Grippy tannins, tar, tobacco are all present in abundance. Intense, long finish. Yearns for red meat. — 6 years ago
