  • Margaux Margaux 1995

    Snoothrank:

    Still youthful. A wonderful Margaux. Glad I have a few more bottles. Read More

  • Rauzan-Gassies 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Herbal, smoky, and a bit tarry on the nose. This is bright, fresh, and somewhat simple on the palate. A bit front loaded in the mouth, this thins out but shows more detail on the back with flavors of herb, light fruit, and subtle oak coming together on the short dry finish. Unremarkable. 84pts Read More

  • Chateau Dufort Viviens 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, stemmy, and quite herbaceous on the nose with some smoked paprika and dried bouillon aromas. Soft, juicy, and simple in the mouth though with bright, fresh blackberry fruit that carries an innate seethes. Right and fresh with an innate sweetness to fruit. Showing fairly ripe and a bit fruitcake spicy. 86pts Read More

  • La Bastide Dauzac. Andre Lurton 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit herbal on the nose with the oak slightly prominent at this stage. There's good acid here but this starts out on the palate a bit soft, roundish. Nice complexity in a fairly savory style, this offers modest scale with classic Bordeaux proportions and a fine core of black currant and black berry fruit supported by dry fruit tannins and finis...

  • Chateau Labegorce 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and reticent on the nose, which shows assertive nutty oak a bit heavily. Smooth and easy going in the mouth, this has good black currant and an attractive bit of truffle accent note in a style that is plump and fresh but this lacks some mid-palate complexity. Really lovely, easy going texture is attractive. 88pts Read More

  • Margaux Prieure Lichine Margaux 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Attractive depth on the nose which reveals tobacco, briar and aromas of fruit that are a bit on the wild side. Showing big crushed berry fruit on entry, this is rich and plump with fine tannins. Polished, very civilized with a bit of power to it, though the finish is soft an elegant. Texturally this is quite appealing, and there is attractive de... Read More

  • Les Hauts du Tertre 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Low aromatics are soil driven and slightly herbal, though showing attractive complexity already. Medium light modes with austere, red currant and raspberry fruit in the mouth, this is elegant if strict in the mouth. A classic little Bordeaux, with tannins that start out austere but softens in the mouth and show attractive ripeness. 89pts Read More

  • Château Marquis de Terme Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Big fruit on the nose, deep and rich smelling, with floral and spicy aromas that are almost middle Eastern spicy. Smooth and big in the mouth, this lacks a touch of stuffing for its size, and may grow into itself buts remains a touch one dimensional today. There is lots of fruit today, and this is rather tough and tannic at that, so there is a l... Read More

  • Chateau Cantenac Brown 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy, smoky and compact on the nose which remains quite reticent. While very fresh in the mouth, this remains austere at the same time, showing incipient complexity and a nice elegance with fruit that is red and fresh. The tannins are ripe and the wine finishes very freshly with long, pure red currant fruit. Already showing attractive complexi... Read More

  • Giscours Margaux 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit funky on the nose though with lovely integration to the smoke tinged and lightly spiced, crushed berry fruit. Tight on entry though very well balanced, this opens slowly and never fully reveals itself though one can see the fine integration, depth and power here with mineral notes emerging on the backend along with lots of ripe, slightly d...
