Château Margaux

Margaux Du Chateau Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Purchased on futures in 2000 for $60 btl. Wanted to try tonight so I cracked open the OWC. With an hour decant this was elegant, floral & lighter in weight with notes of blackberry, cassis, cedar, leather, truffle, graphite, tobacco & violets. — 8 days ago

Château Labégorce

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

I gave it some time out of the bottle which would lead to more plummy notes, more ripe and also almost raw pear, interestingly, and a hints more of baking spice. The tannins were perfect from the top. As was the alcohol level. And body. So inoffensive in every way. Other than that unremarkable but right in line with what I paid for a magnum. Fucking simple but also totally delicious and so swillable with stuffing and cranberry which is all I need. For the price I’d try again for a dinner of tastiness that I don’t need to think too much about. — 17 days ago

Château Durfort-Vivens

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Night cap. Wonderful restrained flavors. The plum and cassis is balanced with good acid and still firm tannins. Nice wine from an estate that is looking improve the quality of its wines. — 17 days ago

Margaux Premier Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

A lovely enveloping feminine nose. Raspberry and real fresh, soft rose-inflected fruit. Generous and very pure. From mag, so pretty slow-evolved. Really classy and focused. This is a pristine bottle and it is beautifully mature yet fresh- generous and delicate but with real depth.

Château d`issan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

Celebrating two newly mint doctors in the family!

Bricked garnet. Transparent, clear. Medium width rim.

Bouquet of espresso, cassis, blackberry, potpurri, dry rose petal.

Structurally resolved. Smooth, agreeable traces of tannin. Med plus acidity. Medium bodied. Dry. Complex notes of cassis, blackberry, dark cherry, cattle range, newly ploughed paddy field, mineral high tone, light touched, floral perfume. Delicate but very much present.

Superb old school Margaux. No heaviness, no excess. A birth year wine that delivers. 93.

An experiment for me that appears to have worked. A lovely Bdx example that has aged gracefully. Still so fresh. Lovely notes of plums and blackberries, delicate oak treatment, finishing with a hint of licorice. Plush tannins and soft acidity. Very nice indeed. — 12 days ago

I love wines from Margaux. They are the perfect blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varietals and are far different than a Bordeaux in that they are not as tannic. Glad to see you enjoyed it! Cheers! @Ron R

Hey @Stephen Pierron, thanks for the input. I'm totally aligned with you. And this producer creates magic in the $25 range.

Château Prieuré-Lichine

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1974

16.5/20 (90/100) Вино с достаточно интенсивным букетом ароматов сухой ежевики, варенья из чёрной смородины, ментола, корицы, чёрного перца, сигарной коробке. К сожалению, очень скоро подлесок начинает доминировать. Свежая кислотность и интенсивные, сухие танины. Во вкусе вино куда как более сдержанно, чем в аромате. Очень неплохо для своего возраста. — 2 days ago

Château Cantebau

Château Dauzac Grand Cru Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Still young, after 2 hours in the decanter the strong tannins softened. Delicious, flavours of dried figs and black fruit, I will definitely drink it again. — 8 days ago
