Not the effusive aromatics I hope for from med-age Margaux. Hard tannins and one dimensional.

After five hours of aeration, there was still plenty of fruit to mix with the violets and lavender

Decant for an hour or two, and it really sweetens up.

Opened up nicely after 2 h to give way to cherry and currant notes. Slight tobacco and wet soil in there, but seemed maybe past peak. Still delicious

Early aromas of earth and tobacco gave way over time to a bit more cherry and less earth. Drinks pretty well with a very nice finish.

Brickish color but not as much as I would have guessed. Pnp. Aromas of tobacco, earth, and a bit of dried cherry. Delicate flavors of cherry,and tobacco. Still holding up strong but I'd drink em if you've got them.

Margaux. Love. Finesse. Words that pair well together to describe this brilliant Bordeaux - as I am likely biased to a good Margaux, this is just wow. Deep, mature red fruits and a well matured robust body make this a wonderful experience to be cherished with each sip. Finishes nicely and is just pure bliss, paring well with the awesome notes on the nose that bring you right to France with the first whiff, on a first class ticket to Bordeaux. Leave the bags unpacked and don't bother leaving for the airport - France has just arrived at your door, and she wants to share. You need this in your life for the holidays!
