Smells like a nice leather shop. Nice amount of dryness on the palate — an hour ago
WI love this stuff. All of WI, Bordeaux — 5 days ago
Possibly my fav red I have tried so far! Easy to drink & has a great balance between being fruity and dry which will be down to the fact it is a blend of Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon. — 6 days ago
Tar, cedar, spices, tobacco a bit, blackberry, black currant, a bit of mint too. There is a bit of oak too. The palate is well structured with a strong acid backbone, lots of matter all along with a nice soft touch on the sides. Then come the tannins wich are still very lively and pointy. They add a complex layer wich turns to a bit of bitter finish, with a pinch of salt, some meat juice, some black currant too. Below 9 for the finish which is a bit hard and unresolved/unresolved — 7 days ago
It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice surprise from Margaux, Bordeaux.
Dark brown in color with a wide brick rim.
Great complexity on the nose with blueberries, black currants, potpourri, raspberries, earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, green vegetables, vinaigrette, black tea, mashrooms, forest floor, smoke, tobacco leaf, spices and graphite.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with blueberries, dried fruits, wood, cloves, forest floor, tobacco leaf, spices, black pepper, earth, black tea, vinaigrette, mushrooms, wet leaves, herbs and graphite.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.
What a great experience this is. This 36 Year old, Cabernet based Bordeaux, is drinking very nicely now. Showing great complexity on both the nose and palate, with a soft mouthfeel. Resembles a 40 year old Barolo.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Took 90 minutes to peak.
Not from a great vintage, but it is still holding great.
I paired it with good friends, and a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
I can't say what the alcohol level is, but it feels like 12.5%
91 points. — a day ago
