Interesting wine, much better on day two. Nose was great from the outset, blackcurrant, pencil lead, leather with a floral and herbal, tea like aroma. Day one it starts fruity on the palate but finishes woody and a little dry / sour, by day two the finish is sweeter and a little smokey with a hint of ash. Rich and deep red in colour. Probably needs a few more years in the bottle to really be at its best but enjoyable now.

Are you kidding me?!? Wow! Beautifully balanced Margaux that belies its young age. 2015 is a truly great vintage. Enjoy the richness with apparent, but not overwrought tannins. BlackBerry, currant nose. Suggest cellaring for another 3-5, but hey...WLLS?!?

17/20 (92/100) Немного парфюмный аромат с тонами вишни, малины, сливы, красной смородины, мускатного ореха, гвоздики, лаврового листа и чёрного шоколада. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и суховатыми, но не вяжущими танинами. Шоколадное во вкусе (02.10.2017)
