    February 10, 2019 - My first bottle of Mongravey, this wine was a winner. Elegant notes of red fruit, cherry, raspberry and some red currant. Initially a touch tart out of the bottle but resolved with some air time. Added notes of herbs, graphite, burnt wood. A great pairing with our slow-roasted duck with herbs (thyme, sage, rosemary, sea salt), that brought out some lovely Margaux perfume and much smoother and deeper fruit flavors. Different but still good with our wild and long-grained rice (cooked in chicken broth and with some truffle oil added), that brought out the vanilla flavors and more red fruits.

    We paid $21 / bottle for this: great QPR.

    The wine was mature now but could hold at this level for a little longer -- or maybe even improve for a year or two.

    About 90 points without the food and 92 points after being open an hour and with the slow-roasted duck.

    May 20, 2018 - Deep red, clear edge with slight blie hint, thick slow drops. Blackberry, nettle, some vegetal notes, cedar wood, graphite / pencil shavings nose. Red cherry, raspberry, some undergrowth, a bit of umami. Lovely fruit, mellow tannins, wonderfully mature at this point. Last bottle of six, a good buy.

    December 28, 2017 - A bit of smoke in bouquet?, nice taste of bordeaux wine. Better impression than first bottle. Could buy again. Ready to drink.

    February 4, 2017 - Ruby red, pink edge, long thin drops. Red cherry, raspberry, vanilla, oak nose. Red cherry, toast, vanilla, burnt wood, leather taste. Lovely fruit and smooth tannins. Drinks wonderfully now.

    August 1, 2016 - The first impression, bouquet was most dominant and typical Margaux, earthy. And the taste was not so dominant, almost a bit thin in aftertaste.
    Both tannin and syre present, in a good balance, I think.
    First impression: do not buy again - too expensive for quality

    Day 2: it appears more complex - had a Montes glass before to the food, and had a glass of this after, and it did not disappear compared to Montes as I had somehow expected. A score of 86 on day 2.
