For #MerlotThursday here's a nice Bordeaux.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Earthy nose with blueberries, cherries, wood, earth, vanilla, spices, licorice, pencil lead, vegetables, wet leaves, leather, peppercorn and vinaigrette.

Full-bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, red currants, oak, smoke, vegetables, vanilla, earth, vanilla, pencil lead, tobacco leaf, wet leaves, river rocks, spices, peppercorn and leather.

Medium finish with grippy tannins and tart cherries.

This is a young Right Bank Bordeaux. Not fully balanced with a nice mouthfeel and great complexity.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show the big tannins.

Still young and needs 5 to 10 years in the bottle to mature properly.

A blend of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses, and some light appetizers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$70.

The Pavie flagship may get all the love but this Macquin is extraordinary! This may have the most intriguing sultry nose of any wine I’ve opened this year—crushed violets, burnt cedar chips and granite with a dash of garrigue. My actual nose actually touched the wine and got wet, that’s how drawn I was to the bouquet. But this Bordeaux was a a great deal more than mere aromatics.....dark full viscosity waves mark the sides of the glass, the oak is there but it melds very harmoniously with the black cherry, blackberry compote, stewed fig and damp earth flavor flood. Very lush, undeniably elegant and so smooth and satisfying. I’m enjoying this tonight and I know this is my first post in a while but I’m still alive....I hope to catch up with my @Delectablewine Delectablewine wine fam and post all the wines in my photo queue soon. Cheers 🥂

Spectacular wine truly enjoyed, surprising that it was already accessible, lovely rich complex nose, lots of black fruits and chocolate, multi layered and complex, full body, rich round tannins, lots of depth, great balance and elegance with a good spice of power, a bit like a fist in a velvet glove;-) long long delicious finish. A must try and a great expression of the delicious 2010 vintage. My score 93, drink to 2032

Left bank vs right bank WTF Group night. People paired up and poured wines in pairs with same vintage and opposite bank. Everything enjoyed blind.

@Delectable Wine : This is a Saint Emilion Bordeaux. I didn’t see it in the database.

This was a random pick by me at the local wine shop. JSuckling 95 and RParker 94. Unique right bank. After about 2hrs in the decanter, it had a bit of funk to it that many left banks have at pop and pour. Cali reminiscent. Dark fruit profile with dark chocolate. Dirty chocolate covered cherries, fleshy berries on the palate and fantastic aromatics.

Riper profile with firm tannins. After 2 hours in the decanter it starts to show beautiful secondary notes.
