It’s alive! Definitely in it’s last years, but the fruit is still there—prunes, cedar, forest floor, tobacco on the end and another wallop of prune and fig, finishes forever and ever.

From the terrific ‘00 vintage, fine tannins, black plum, cassis, juniper, touch of earth on the finish

Kind of beefy and alcoholic but still a good pairing with red meat.

#margaux #grandcruclassé #giscours primary red fruits and secondary malolactic in barrel creamy aromas. Slightly green tannins and lacking ripeness on the palate. Reminded me of Kirwan.

Generous nose of blackberry compote, violets, forest brush and cedar. On the palate, expect ripe tannins, black cherry and a fair amount of glycerol. It's full, round, fat and totally hedonistic.
