Delicious Margaux .... full of earth notes, compost, potting soil on the nose, with rich, dark, velvety fruit, and silky tannins on the finish. Bottle was far more enjoyable knowing that we recently visited the Château on our honeymoon in France. — 18 days ago
Beautiful wine! 2009 Margaux from Château D'Issan ...even more enjoyable knowing that we have actually visited and toured the 15th century Château....one of the few actually surrounded by a moat!
Will post tasting notes soon, but this bottle opened up beautifully. 😀🍷🇫🇷 — 10 days ago
This bottle I picked up just before the holiday weekend. I hope everyone is having a great holiday of family, friends and wine. I have opened the 2014 Alter Ego de Palmer Margaux Mèdoc. 52% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot and 3% other (probably Cabernet Franc).
On the nose the is plenty of dark fruit black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, licorice, rose, violet, leather, chocolate powder, graphite and earth.
On the palate the dark fruit continues with black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, tar, spice, rose, leather and rich soil.
The wine is medium to full bodied, round and fleshy with medium + acidity and medium + smooth tannin that coats the mouth and leads to a long prolonged finish. Please continue being safe this holiday and remember those that went before protecting our freedoms. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 24 days ago
