From half; certainly competent but a bit boring. Maybe some floral notes to point you towards Margaux but fairly generic. Black fruited, oak notes, fairly glossy. Certainly a fine choice if your dinner guests are either plentiful or novices and you don't want to drink plonk - provided you can get it for a reasonable price.
Very dark centre, red rim. Lovely, full, savoury nose. Medium weight, chewy, vanilla start. Mid range tannin and an almost Marmite like finish. Delicious. Much more austere than the Australian or Spanish equivalents, but lean and elegant. Mineral.
Surprising for different reasons. Greenness dissipated after a couple of hours, but not the fruity, rounded wine the WS tasting notes suggested. Angular. WS revised its drinking window from 2024 to 2020. Better than I hoped for given some of the previous reviews. Pleased I have a few more bottles. It's unusual and should go well with rich food.
Developing nose with a medium(+) intensity. Starts off a bit tight but comes around with some time in the glass. Blackberry, cassis, black olive, animal skin, bay leaf, licorice, oak, coffee, violet and thyme. It develops notes of moist soil and green bell pepper.
Medium(+) bodied, medium acidity and a bit harsh, medium(+) tannins. Medium intensity of flavors with cool black fruit, black olive, moist soil, tobacco, oak, and green bell pepper. Unripe and almost austere finish.
Great nose but rugged and a bit light on the fruit on the palate. It probably would've came around more soft if paired with some fatty food. Drink within a year or two cause this doesn't have enough fruit for further aging.

(Chateau d'Angludet Margaux) A surprising presence of deep and dark fruit on the nose here, with some oak alongside. The palate has a supple style, nice substance, rounded, and overall appropriate for the nice grip found beneath. Appealing, gently flattering, this is a good effort.
