Ripe & oaky. Neal Martin purportedly gave it an 87. In all fairness this was accessed with Coravin a month or so ago and opened last night.

Opaque purply red, not very expensive on the nose, hint of oak. Quite full mouth feel and nice length

Opaque garnet-purple.
Big blackberry nose.
Classic Margaux acidity and tannin structure.
New world ripeness with old world style.
15-20 years aging potential.

Expressive aromas jump from the glass: nutmeg, cinnamon, green peppercorn, and blackberry. Lighter in style, with clean red and blue fruits.

I bought this a Costco because I don’t think I had ever see a Margaux for $20(!). I was not disappointed. I generally love Margaux, though I find that they can sometimes be finicky, requiring decanting and lots of breathing before they fully reveal themselves. Not so this. It’s easy to drink on your terms, not the wine’s, and, in this way, it is faintly redolent of the New World, but I don’t mean that as a pejorative. Just pop it open and go. Very easy. Uncomplicated The wine itself is delicious. The texture seems slightly thicker to me, and this may be due, in part, to the higher alcohol content of this wine (14.5%) when compared to what I normally associate with Bordeaux. Overall, it has a nice balance of stone fruits and tannins, and, even if somewhat thicker and, perhaps, less distinguished than other wines from Margaux, it’s an enjoyable bargain. Highly recommend!

A nice bold, dry and smooth Bordeaux. Easy on the pallette, nose is full of dark berry, cassis, oak and tobacco. Nice legs on the glass as well. Don't recall when I picked this up at Costco but a good pp at $22 IMO.
