Margaux, Médoc

Château Prieuré-Lichine

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

2015 vintage. Bouquet of mostly smoke and dark cherry with some supplemental aromas of roasted nuts and coriander. Medium + body. Flavors pretty tight after 30 mins being open but fleshy and flashing that dark cherry along with some dark plum in a decidedly sleek fashion. A little cocoa powder accent on the finish. — 7 days ago

Pavillon Rouge Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

For me, the connection to Ch. Margaux is in name only. While it’s a highly competent wine, there’s no hint of the elegance, nuance and intrigue of the flagship wine. While that might be related to vintage (2009 is not generally know for subtlety or nuance), I’ve had this wine in different vintages with similar returns. Fun for a night. — 5 days ago

This 1964 held up very well! Amazing color for the age and beautiful fruit flavors with hints of raisins and dates. — 17 days ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Lyle Fass
9.3

Gorgeous. Floral. Berries. Graphite, lead pencil, florals, violets, wild mint, Thai mint, super juicy, complex, pure, sleek, very refined tannins. Cigar box, ashtray, velvety tannins. Stanky minerals. Terrific complexity on the nose. Juiciness on the palate is a highlight. — 3 days ago

Château Kirwan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 opened July 2021. Still a little too young for it’s maximum potential IMHO. Leather and loam on the nose. Distinct cherry fruit on the front. Heavy tannic structure — more so than the average Bordeaux — and more so than the most of the Margauxs I’ve had. The tannins kick in on the mid palate. They’re velvety (With a lot of complexity that might be revealed in few years). Unfortunately some sour high notes appear at the mid palate and amplify themselves to the end of the pallet. Very much sour cherries. But this wine redeems itself by having a long but subtle mineral finish. I might retry this wine in three or four years. I can’t give it a better score than 9.1 right now, though. But I might’ve the score in 2024 or 2025. Hopefully, I’ll have a personal jet pack by that time. But heavens no, I won’t drink and fly. — 17 days ago

Margaux Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Beautiful. Just ripe blackberries, small red berries, savory dried herbs. Then leather and a lot of minerality. The palate is so fresh, high acid and fine tannins that still have more grip then you expect from 9 years — 8 days ago

Château Bel Air-Marquis d'Aligre

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

Pop and pour. Notes from 2 hrs open. On the nose: loads of cedar, dried blackberry, dried leaves and herbs...so soft and enticing. On the palate: dried herbs, blackberry, cedar.toast, good acidity. Lighter styled, but lovely density, attenuated tannin. Firmly secondary with some tertiary notes...yum. — 6 days ago

@Joshua Fisher not sure I have a favorite, but I really like St. Julien in general (esp. Ducru, Las Cases, Gruaud Larose, maybe in that order). Anything I should definitely try?

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1971

1971 - Was really good bottle, compared to the rest of the case (tired and showing their age). Perfectly mature. Still great core of Black Cherry fruit. Lots of leather, leaf tobacco, and other savory flavors. — 7 days ago
