Château Bel Air-Marquis d'Aligre

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

As others have noted, a world away from modern Bordeaux. High toned, as much red fruit driven as black, minimal (no?) wood or extraction. Accessible with a bit of air and continued to evolve over the next day. Raspberry, plum skin, black currant, tobacco leaf, old leather and earth. Tastes like a decent proportion of cab franc. Autumnal, austere, but not unwelcoming. Feels like something to sip on a quiet night in a wood paneled study by a fireplace. — 6 days ago

Château Grand Tayac

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

I don’t drink a lot of Bordeaux, mainly because it doesn’t go with a lot of the Italian-ish stuff I cook, but I do enjoy a nice one when the food is conducive to it. This has lovely, composed, slightly plummy cassis fruit, and warm gravelly scents, along with a waft of sweet smoke. Great balance in the mouth (only 13%) with nice acids and super-soft tannins. — 10 days ago

Château Palmer

Alter Ego Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 was young, but this was my first Palmer. Alter Ego is the second label. Very enjoyable wine. It paired well with lamb, and cheese. Good fruit, enjoyable tannins. Not too acidic. Didn’t have the depth that an older wine might have, but a great experience. Looking forward to more Palmer in my life. — 9 days ago
