The wine looks Garnet colored. The legs are Medium. It smells like Strawberry, Black currant (cassis), and Forest floor. It tastes like Forest floor, Clove, Raspberry, Black currant (cassis), and Cool/Menthol with a Gamey undertone. The body is Medium/Full. The wine has Smooth texture. The wine finishes Long.
So I'm a sucker for a nice Margaux, but drunk with Christmas dinner of pheasant and Venison, this was absolutely spot on. Tasted much more youthful than it's years, opened 2 hours before drinking, it was still going strong and evolving 5 hours later.
Opened and breath from 2:30 pm in the bottle, tasted in 1 hour interval and served around 7:30 pm. Nice and beautiful aromas, medium ruby color, fruity taste, top around 9:00 pm Not as complex as 1st growth.
As decanted the smell filled the room with beautiful aromas.
The wines appearance was a medium deep garnet/tawny colour with legs. On the nose this wine showed a bouquet of stewed,sour,raspberry,cherry,stewed strawberry,plums and earthy pooy notes, with complex caramel and slight cinnamon also pick up noted of ripe strawberrys and pomegranate.
On the palate I found this wine to be dry soft tannin good smooth body with flavours of again sour cherry. Strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate and plum with french oak spice earty slightly meaty with some coco/dark chocolate and a earthy fruity finish.
Agree with LMA tasting note. Opened and allowed to breathe for about 45 minutes then poured into glasses. The wine was pretty impressive in its youthful appearance. Clear ruby color. Very little fading. Nose of red fruits, cedar, wet earth. An hour later the cigar box characteristic comes through. Silky tannins although not much fruit coming through on the palate and turns slightly acidic. Very enjoyable nonetheless.
