Margaux

Château d`issan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Nose has waves of ink, dark cherry, mushrooms, incense cedar and earth. Light-medium body. Pretties up on a dry but gilded tobacco, plum and spicy boysenberry finish. Brickish tannins smooth out fairly quickly. Classy and with plenty of staying power. — 5 hours ago

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

Birthday wine. Was skeptical when I tasted right after I opened but with a few hours of air opened up beautifully. Tertiary notes of mushrooms, leather and tobacco but still plenty of fruit characteristics which makes me suspect this vintage will only continue to shine. Thankfully have 2 more bottles left — 13 days ago

Chateau Dauzac

Aurore de Dauzac Margaux Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018

I bought this a Costco because I don’t think I had ever see a Margaux for $20(!). I was not disappointed. I generally love Margaux, though I find that they can sometimes be finicky, requiring decanting and lots of breathing before they fully reveal themselves. Not so this. It’s easy to drink on your terms, not the wine’s, and, in this way, it is faintly redolent of the New World, but I don’t mean that as a pejorative. Just pop it open and go. Very easy. Uncomplicated The wine itself is delicious. The texture seems slightly thicker to me, and this may be due, in part, to the higher alcohol content of this wine (14.5%) when compared to what I normally associate with Bordeaux. Overall, it has a nice balance of stone fruits and tannins, and, even if somewhat thicker and, perhaps, less distinguished than other wines from Margaux, it’s an enjoyable bargain. Highly recommend! — 8 days ago

Château Margaux

Margaux Du Chateau Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Essentially nothing more I could ask for in Bdx. Btl had the original price on it: 69.95 USD. That ship has long ago sailed. Lived up to the expectations I had the last and wholly singular time I tried it: the first First Growth BDX I ever had and it took my breath away. — 6 days ago

What a bottle. Glad it lived up to (and seemingly exceeded) expectations.

Château Prieuré-Lichine

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. Tasting again for the first time in seventeen days. This bottle a little more closed. Some big spearmint on the nose. Sexy but not voluptuous body. Still a beautiful balance between fruit, tannins and acidity. Don't sleep on this one. — 6 days ago

Château Malescot St. Exupéry

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

2018 vintage. That big-boned, Malescot body with plushy fruit. A dollop of astringency on the back end. Love me don’t hate me tannins. Meh nose. This juice has nowhere to go but up. Über-drinkable now but not performing in certain categories currently. Wouldn’t hurt to revisit in a year or two. — 11 days ago
