This "grand vin" from Ulysse Cazabonne (Château Rauzan-Ségla?) isn't a great wine, thinning out and turning bitter, and lacking profundity, but as an introduction to Margaux that works well in its own right? Sure. The nose is just gorgeous, with an exceptional mix of blackberry and cedar supported by cassis, raspberry, graphite, and light pepper spice. The dark fruit is joined by sour currant on the palate, the overall richness cut by tangy acidity. There's undeniable elegance here, the structure of excellence, and this accessible Margaux certainly points to bigger and better things.
