This bottle was in a not too great state (high to top shoulder). The cork came out nicely though. We drank this without decanting, which was a mistake. We also drank it too cold (around 15 to 16 degrees celsius). Thus, at first it was quite repelling with a decent reduced nose (some crushed red berries) and harsh acidity and tannins on the palate. With some time in the glass and the wine warming up a bit, it gained and gained in texture and flavour. In the end, we had a super nice classic claret, which made a very young appearance. In the nose, there were griotte cherries, red currant and some strawberries, there was also some goat's cheese and mushrooms. On the palate, it was silky and smooth. As a result, I'd recommed to decant it for one or two hours and serve it at at least 18 degrees celsius.

(Chateau du Tertre Margaux) This wine has some tawniness to it. It is smoky and leafy on the nose, with good blackcurrant fruit. It smells hard, tannic and restrained. On the palate this is confirmed, still quite hard, but there is some rich fruit present. Gravelly, sooty, tarry notes. Tannic finish.
