Blueberry whiffs, maple coals, precise graphite smudging, raisinate black currant, bacon fat, periwinkle, heather blossom and wildflowers aromatically. Graphite amplified throughout blackberry black cherry and black currant magnificently. Sliced, ripe black plum, cardamom, licorice, black tea and pepper.

Château Moulin de Tricot

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016, so, young and wound up. Nose of live cypress, fresh dug hole along a wood, pine one, cherrywood, pressed raspberry; barely broken. Raisin rolls, chanterelle, rose stem. Rocky, with a silken red liquid rose petal moment that turned chewy round tannin and lush burst of plum. A solid nod to graphite immersed in raspberry tartness, red currant and slightest cinnamon and slighter peppercorn. Green in spots but there architecturally.

Château Rauzan-Gassies

Deuxieme Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

I’ve had my mind on this bottle for a few weeks - the wife wanted a special bottle for a regular Friday night. It only needed an hour to decant for a 12-year old vintage. Subtle cassis, cured meat, mushroom, hint of licorice and leather on the palate. Fine dense tannins polish off a savory finish. Beautiful wine. #margaux #2ndgrowth — 3 years ago

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

1982 vintage. Cinnamon and baked cherry nose with specks of pepper; eucalyptus aura shimmering. Rye bread with plum reduction, dusty cedar, dehydrated blackberry, broiled blueberry, reflective graphite glimmers, toasted wheat, holly leaf. Baked bing and raspberry with dried plum skin; black currant reduction with all kinds of legs. Sage and dandelion leaf, dried black mushroom, bitter blueberry, graphite gravy, and a side of pomegranate. So fun to taste this legendary vintage. Seems to be in the perfect place now.

Château Siran

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Such a beautiful nose: raspberry, violet, cedar and a little vanilla. Red raspberry, tobacco, dried herbs. Med-firm acidity and tannins. It keeps evolving. Would love to taste this again in 5-7 years! #margaux #chateausiran — 2 years ago

Château Labégorce

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 holding up well. Morel, shiitake, crimini, and baked plum, with baked grape for good measure, poppy blossom, squash bread, baked squash blossoms, and bresaola. Rich palate with firm tannin shows oolong, strong graphite core, nutmeg, fine Connecticut tobacco, pepper, dill, and a touch of anise. Bold for its age, and vibrant. Fruits emerge on a long finish; dusty cherry and cocoa, dried black currant, powdered blackberry and cassis.

Fine description

Château Kirwan

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Black cherry rim to rim. Rayon and linseed, baker’s chocolate, eucalyptus, graphite, peppercorn, applewood, dried mint, plum and black currant simplify the aromatics. Surprising fruit with juicy black currant, bits of blackberry, and black cherry meat. Graphite speckled, but fruit led. Pepper, cinnamon, clove and rosemary, black olive, cranberry, and tart red currant.
