Pouring deep brick red, the delicate aroma of dark forest fruit tells you that you have a Margaux in your hand. Full bodied, but not heavy, this is a complex blend of grapes and flavours that has nothing going against it. Not as harsh as some Margaux’s are, this wine needs to be savoured in the mouth to explore its full taste. I would always drink Margaux on it own and savour the taste, but you could drink it with good red meat that will stand up to the superb wine.
While I was doing the winetastings, this Margaux stood out. After all the tasting and spitting, at the end of the day I came back for a full glass of this wine to end on a high. Of over 75 wines to try, this was the only one I came back to actually drink.
This wine is expensive for Aldi, but probably a third of the price anywhere else. Buy it and you will not regret it.
