Margaux, Bordeaux. 12.5%
Raw young claret with tannin, ripe flavours but without any juiciness. New raw French oak, no caramel.
It’s not unreasonable to expect this to improve greatly but it has little charm at present. Lacks fruit.
This 2nd growth has performed below this level for many years. It’s now supposed to be improving. I don’t see anything here yet at 2nd growth level.
