Margaux, Médoc

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

From the great 2005 vintage and #2 on Winespectator top 100 wines of 2008.

2 hour decant(lots of chunky sediment). A irresistible dark ruby red color. On the nose: bursting from the glass are those floral Margaux notes, sweet red fruit, cedar, some eucalyptus, crushed rocks, hints of cinnamon. Taste: dark plum, graphite, smoke, with red berries hitting mid palate. A creamy berry tobacco medium plus finish. Good acidity, still some tannins that need to work themselves out. Early in its drinking window, showing lots of promise for the future....easy to enjoy now if you like more fruit and less secondary flavors.

Thanks for the push @Paul Jakubowski

Wednesday Wine Committee from this past week. A fantastic hosting by @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

Possibly in its prime drinking window, and it is gorgeous. Everything about this screams high quality left bank Bordeaux (which is what I called it). It was beautifully perfumed with a mix of potpourri, dried black cherries, blackberries, graphite, saddle leather and herbs de Provence. Perfectly balanced on the palate with dark fruits enveloped in cedar and sweet pipe tobacco. There is a line of ripe purple fruits down the middle accompanied by dust and mocha which is just delicious.

😍 older vintages from Palmer. Great style. This will still be improving for some time.

Château Tour Massac

Margaux Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Château Tour Massac 2011 has medium intensity in color. It has mix aromas of young small black fruits and spices through the aging of the barrel. Its bouquet, still to develop during bottle ageing, towards mainly tobacco, medium level of leather, and little bit of mint . It has a round, soft initial taste, followed by a full, mouth-filling volume. The finish is with silky considerably young tannins, deliciously guide the aromas throughout the further tastings. — 3 days ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

2012. Definitely slow to open up and and be Bordeaux about it. Entering its drinking timeline just now. After being open since 6 last eve....24-34 hours later..
The rad dried violet/flowers that showed on initial has finely integrated the oh-so-pretty nose with the multi-soft-grip palette. Super cool if you’re patient. Thanks Elias and Brad for letting me watch this one till it came around.....
A sleeper lies in your cellar if you’re sitting on this one. Cheers to the exploration of patience.

Château Giscours

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Elegance. Perfumed blackberry. Black currant and cassis with a dash of pepper. Still too young, but not sorry to have opened. Tannins need time, but C’est la Vie. Delicious — 25 minutes ago

Loved it. When this baby grows up it will be a stunner. At opening the nose filled the room. Then it shut down. At hour 6 it was game on again. — 18 days ago

Buttery soft on the nose and very soft to taste. Complex with good length. Only hints of acidity and bitterness. Wonderful wine. Will buy again! — 6 days ago
