Margaux, Médoc

Château Palmer

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Mesmerizing - took about 45 mins for the nose to spring to life but boy did it - violets juxtaposed with graphite and old library notes - sexy. Palate was outstanding- blue fruits, spice box, tobacco, leather and extremely long and silky finish. A perfect wine in my opinion — 4 days ago

Château Marquis d'Alesme

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2017


It takes about an hour and 45 minutes to decant. Don’t pull and pop! We pulled the 2017 and felt it could use 3 more years. Dog feels it’s a little light and time will improve. Overall decent. — 12 days ago

Château Moulin de Tricot

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Old school in a good way. Mellow, elegant. Cab-forward but the merlot is def there in the background. Black currant, tobacco, cedar, some red fruit notes. My kind of Bordeaux — 9 days ago

A under the radar find!

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

Still holds the title for best nose in the world! 1hr+ decant. Floral nose that’s insane. Could small the empty bottle all day long. Wine is classic Bordeaux with flowers, earth, and cedar dominating. Wine starts out deep and chewy but fades quickly. Still a favorite! Drink up! — 24 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

First time I opened one of these 1.5 years ago it was totally closed. Now it’s back open for business and lovely. If blindfolded, based on the perfume alone I would have guessed a Margaux like Palmer as it threw off tons of violets, graphite and blue fruits - gorgeous but a tinge of rough edge that blew off after about an hour. Palate still tasted young but had the complexity you look for in an older claret - spice, leather, graphite, blue fruits and a long finish. This is in a great drinking window but easily has decades of life ahead of it. — 9 days ago
