From our cellar in Rio. We bought it winter 1999 so like 20 years go. Impeccably kept. Last bottle of 6. All the secondary and now tertiary aromas of a really compelling Margaux. Very fragrant on the nose, polished and balanced mouth with a very floral finish. Gorgeous to drink, might stay at this level but not for very long. Wonderful experience ! — 3 days ago
Dinner with some dear friends at Lucio’s BYOB. Two couples, each couple brought 3 bottles.
Another one of my contributions. Didn’t take nearly as long to open up as the last bottle of this I had 👌🏻 paired nicely with short rib & risotto. — 13 days ago
A touch over 50% Merlot, this wine was in a really good spot. The news had fig and raspberry and some verbal qualities. The entry had a little bit of cola and wild strawberry with dirty raspberry and fig. Got a little bit darker as it finished, but the body of this wine stayed much more to the full side and never really leaned out. Still quite young with a very rounded quality. Silky tannin finish on this wine. Medium acidity. This one tastes like it is 5 years old. I really think that additional celler aging for up to 10 years will really help the integration process, although it is in a really good spot right now! — 2 days ago
Located on the terrace of alluvial gravel bordering the river. The "Village de La Lagune" was a tenant farm in its place and gradually transformed into a wine-growing estate. Dark purple with red fruits spice and earthy aromas. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with cedar, cacao, tobacco and leather notes. Fine sweet tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy notes. Needs some aging. Nice! — 17 days ago

Rich berry aromas with floral and spices, very pleasant. On the palate blueberry and wild berry flavors with licorice and toasty oak notes. Lingering rich finish on soft juicy tannins, drinking well and still has room to go. Very Nice. — 3 days ago

Beautiful ruby color with a garnet rim. Red and back fruit, soil, lead pencil, clay and dry herbs on the nose. Same on the palate with hints of white pepper that lasts on the lingering finish. Almost rated it on the nose only. Such a treat, all class and elegance. — 6 days ago
Deep Ruby with pronounced aroma intensity showing black fruits, toasty and Haney notes. On the palate flavors of black currant & blackberry, jammy, with vanilla spice and cedar notes. Biting tannins on long finish that still had plenty of room to age. Nice. Tasting Sample. — 3 days ago
