dark, plummy & rich on the palate, it’s the classic Margaux perfume that impresses most ~ great drop of Bordeaux for $23.95!

A major sleeper in this vintage, the 2015 d'Arsac is superb. Hints to savory herb, flowers tobacco and mint meld into a core of sumptuous dark red fruit. This bold Margaux Cru Bourgeois is a serious overachiever and flat out delicious. The 2015 is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2018)

Almost garnet. Blackcurrant, pencil, violets, black plum, cloves, leather and vanilla with lots of red raspberry too. Very delicious with a wonderfully long finish.

Very pleasant and accessible Bordeaux, some fruit and a touch of tannins. Went very well with leg of lamb casserole.

Generous amounts of dark plum and blackberry fruit. Chewy tannins and powerful structure. There is also a smoky element to this wine. Beautiful finish and pleasant aftertaste. Great now, but will become brilliant with a few more years of bottle age.

Very accessible easy drinking. Earthy and fruity. Just enough tannins to stay interesting, minimal finish. Delicious and nice to drink.

Decanted for 1.5hrs, but really opened up after 2-2.5hrs. Initially muted but as more time elapsed notes of black cherry blackberry followed by mushrooms, dominant dark earthiness and leather. Appropriately balanced acidity along with medium tannin that lingered well. Really nice!

Nose of black currant, toast, oaky notes, rose a bit too. The palate is well made and balanced with a strong acid backbone and some width. Blackberry and black currant, lively tannins, some oak there too. Finish with black currant and oaky notes. Well done.
