Save $20.01 (21%)
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Margaux|
Dark colour, fine crimson tints. Ripe fruit, mocha, vanilla. Powerful and harmonious with nice, smooth tannins.
This opens slowly, showing a slight woodsy bent, with alder and mesquite notes leading off, but as it does the core of red currant, blackberry and plum fruit flavor fleshes out nicely, soaking up the woodsy element while adding in light savory detail and black tea and violet notes. A long mineral echo chimes through the finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 9,975 cases made. — JM
