Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Second bottle in the last month. Still playing a bit of hide and seek. Spearmint, dust, wet earth, mushrooms, dark plum in the nose. All that jazz in the tastebuds with some Earl Grey tea component casually strutting into the scene. Still light/light medium bodied. Finishing super-dry without any modicum of plushiness currently. Improved attitude vs the last recent bottle. Need to pick up another and taste again in six months since this wine is high-maintenance and still going through some personal “issues” but likely worth the long-term investment. — 10 days ago

Château Kirwan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 opened July 2021. Still a little too young for it’s maximum potential IMHO. Leather and loam on the nose. Distinct cherry fruit on the front. Heavy tannic structure — more so than the average Bordeaux — and more so than the most of the Margauxs I’ve had. The tannins kick in on the mid palate. They’re velvety (With a lot of complexity that might be revealed in few years). Unfortunately some sour high notes appear at the mid palate and amplify themselves to the end of the pallet. Very much sour cherries. But this wine redeems itself by having a long but subtle mineral finish. I might retry this wine in three or four years. I can’t give it a better score than 9.1 right now, though. But I might’ve the score in 2024 or 2025. Hopefully, I’ll have a personal jet pack by that time. But heavens no, I won’t drink and fly. — 9 days ago

This 1964 held up very well! Amazing color for the age and beautiful fruit flavors with hints of raisins and dates. — 9 days ago

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1995

Initial nose was like a wonderful complex cologne, 1995 drunk in 2021, still fresh and great, lots of life left, but, nothing really spectacular about the wine. Definitely good but not worth it. — 16 days ago

Pavillon Rouge Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Beautiful bouquet that still under represents the richness of this wine IMO. Graphite, oak, dark fruit are presented on a structured tannic backbone. I can’t believe this is a second wine!! — 5 days ago

Château Giscours

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Opened this is a Left Bank v Right Bank taste-off against a 2015 Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot and this one won handily. Smooth and balanced, with a long finish. Probably even better in a year or two, if I can wait that long to drink the second bottle! — 20 days ago
