Chateau Bel-Air - Marquis d'Aligre Margaux 2005

Chateau Bel-Air - Marquis d'Aligre Margaux 2005

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2005 Bel-Air Marquis d’Aligre has a strict, backward, tobacco and graphite-tinged bouquet with more black fruit than red, unlike the 2001. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, harmonious and crisp with a fine thread of acidity. There is a gentle build in the mouth, quite linear but delivering a very nuanced, lightly spiced, clove-infused finish. This Margaux is endowed with impressive density compared to other vintages tasted, the fruit veering towards black plums and a hint of balsamic. I admire the transparency of the wine, one that makes you feel as if you are peering directly into the vineyard. Tasted at the Bel-Air Marquis d’Aligre dinner. Drink: 2018-2033. 92 points"
