Nice. A touch of barnyard funk or stinky cheese. But I liked it.

From 375 mL, this is aromatically open and developing nicely, high complexity.

Deep and pure on the nose. Excellent balance of black fruit preserve, floral notes, and graphite. Dense and gripping. Revealing today, but clearly warrants more time in the cellar.

Very ripe almost jammy black currant and raspberry aromas and flavors with a long finish of allspice, cinnamon and graphite. Outstanding second label Margaux.

Good and well blended Bordeaux; complex and almost soft on the tongue. Fruity but not sweet. Nice earth notes and gentle tannin. Overall quite good. Drank very well with steak. Maureen says, "very smooth and delicious".
