#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.

Dusty rose, dirty Frenchman right here. There's just something about old world wine and the taste of French terroir. || Cypher wine training : Bordeaux varietals ||

A little closed but nice. Medium body with leaner dark fruits, dark barrel toast, dry & decayed flowers, black tea, coffee grounds. This one needs time over the Brane & Brown

Loved this third growth from the underrated, plush, high-toned 2004 vintage. This Margaux is very generous and polished, concentrated and velvety. #bordeaux #margaux #giscours
