Rim to rim unvaried black. The charred tips of coffee rye. Cooked, black olives, wood mushrooms, dried black mix of sand and loam. Exsiccated black cherry, espresso, and bitter chocolate. Medium mouthfeel filled with variegated tannins evoke a murky shoreline tumble. Chamomile and dark cigar, cinnamon stick, salty, dried violets, river rocks freshly shattered, a dark look of scorn from a resentful moon and burnt parchment. #margaux #margauxmoments #MargauxWestYoungMan #DoNotPassMargaux #leftbank #Bordeaux #bordeauxlovers #ChateauDIssan — 6 days ago
Drank 10/19/17. Tasting pour.
Nose of black fruits, violets, and cocoa. Plums and black currant on the palate, still with tannins that are quite firm. Long finish. Drink now or age another 5-10 years.

Very interesting wine on the palate. Initial sips are unsure, but as it opens up it becomes a very foresty, earthy, woody wine with nice notes of mushroom actually! Complex and interesting! — 6 days ago

This is second time following 2010 vintage to confirm the taste before serving it to others. Cedar nose and black currant aroma, enough tanning, good balanced with acidity. Elegant. 1.5hours, became stable, a bit tanning , but with vanilla flavor @3200, Raluten, 171008 — 12 days ago
