Margaux, Médoc

Château Cantenac Brown

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

375ml. Always one of my favs! Many years left as it felt young, but I loved the lushness and power. Dark purple, almost black color. More Napa Cab like than French Bordeaux. Excellent black cherry and blueberry fruit. Very long finish. Glad I have another! — 3 days ago

Château Prieuré-Lichine

Confidences de Prieuré-Lichine Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Very floral on the nose, strong tannins on the finish, and filled with black fruit, mocha, and blueberries. Decent second label from Prieure-Lichine for the price, but needs a lot more time in the bottle. — 19 days ago

La Dame de Malescot

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Fantastic second label from Château Malescot Saint-Éxupéry. It opened up beautifully after 30 minutes and really showed why the 2015s have been rated one of the best vintages. It has stronger notes of earth than other Margaux that I have tasted and on the palate there is a nice elegant balance of red and dark fruit, black tea, vanilla, hint of lavender, very velvety and silky on the finish. I personally would not hold this bottle for too long like I would many others, but it will continue improve with time. Cheers! 🍷 — 11 days ago

Ségla

Margaux Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

From half bottle this is the 2nd wine of 2nd Growth Rauzan Segla from Margaux. Lovely nose showing it appears a high Merlot influence. Cedar box and silky mouthfeel. Fine persistent tannins. I found this more developed than expected but a very good claret nonetheless. — 6 days ago

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. No true theme this month. Some wines tasted blind.

This was not tasted blind by me. On the nose, Red clay, underripe red and black fruit. Dusty and young...earthy. Ripe and lush on the palate...candied cherry, saddle leather and herbal spice. Drinking well, but plenty of time ahead and not yet at peak. Thanks

I love Château Du Tertre and their sister winery Château Giscours - both are magnificent estates in Margaux! I've never had an 05 Margaux, but good to know that it has not reached its peak yet @Shay A
