Classic Margaux. Nice flinty aromatics with integrated oak. Smooth rich mid palate still some tannin in the finish. Well done

I want like this wine more. Why? I own more of it and lascombes and lichine are some of my go to Margauxs. This took a solid 2 hours to open. Upon opening nothing on the follow the flavor was all up front and heavy on the alcohol. After two hours the fruit showed up, medium bodied and a touch dry on the finish. Btw went to a 2016 Bordeaux tasting. Bees knees! not saying you can justify the price but the 16 of lichine was great

Very rich flavors of cassis and mint and dark fruit enhanced by a classic Medoc cab nose. Very enjoyable now and long into the future

Second time trying this wine, this time much better. Deep purple with soft tannins, black fruit but much more that barnyard earthy undertone. Made the 02 vieux certan seem down right fruity.
