Château Boyd-Cantenac

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1981

Nose of rose petal, wet forest soil and strawberry jam. There is a slight trace of age in the orange rim but the wine is still very dark. The palate is still very powerful and round with strawberry and currant notes. The tannins are now fully integrated and the finish is quite long with fruits. Enjoyable old wine — 12 days ago

Definitely seems to have had some seepage in the past.

Deep ruby red. Dark and thick nose with dark berries, spices, and a touch of pepper. Medium tannins (5/10) and medium bodied. Nicely integrated and balanced with notes of plums, flora, gravel and spices. Medium to medium plus body. Drink now.

Alto de Cantenac Brown Margaux Sauvignon Blanc 2014

What a beautiful Bordeaux blanc this is. 'Balanced' is one if the best descriptors for this wine. It hits all 3 corners of the triangle of deliciousness. Floral, complex, and balance. Alto is also a great name for this wine, because the nose hits high, bright and round notes of lemon oil, fresh ginger, pineapple, vanilla cream, white flowers, and smoke/flint. The pallet has some bright juicy acidity, and a round, refreshing, and light mouth feel - lemon tart, candied ginger, tangerine, underripe grapefruit, and white pepper lingering on the pallet for an awesome finish. If you can get some still, buy it up. It's a must for the cellar diversity, and it was created to resemble the best of Sancerre wines. It shares a striking resemblance!

90% Sauvignon Blanc

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Right out the chute as a pop & pour this wine is dominating. On the nose matured dark fruits such as plums & blackberries with a mild ripe cherry tartness, tobacco, potpourri, along with eucalyptus & forest floor overlays. On the palate incredibly delicate and expressive lavender, plums, Christmas spices, and blackberries. — 11 days ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Интенсивная ароматика и вкус : джем из чёрной смородины, голубчики и клубники, специи (мускатный орех, гвоздика, перец), табак , мокрая листва , грифель карандаша , деревянный пол и щепотка ванили. Долгое послевкусие с тонами сухого ореха. Прекрасная кислотность, придаёт свежести вину. Мягкие танины, но вино со структурой. Очень хорошее.
Medium garnet color. Pronounced aromas of cooked blackberry, strawberry jam, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, wood floor, tobacco, wet leaves, pencil shavings. Dry, acidity is medium+, tannins are medium , body is medium, intense flavor of cooked blackberry, strawberry jam, blueberry jam, wet leaves, tobacco, pencil shaving, nutmeg, pepper. Long finish. Some dried nuts in aftertaste.
Very good!

Baron De Brane Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend

Lovely wine, albeit a bit young. Plums, cassis, and blackberries. Nice structure and finish. Probably better to let it decant a bit. Improved over the course of the evening. — a month ago
