Sommelier@WatersideInn/FWS MASTER OF BORDEAUX
1934 Château Margaux
Top shoulder fill. Semi-opaque at the core, almost like an old burgundy with its brownish hews. Beautiful and graceful bouquet of roses, raspberries that have been baked, very elegant and healthy nose. At first very dry, with the fruit barely hanging on for dear life, but after 15 minutes in the decanted it comes alive with sweet fruit, high acidity and just a kiss of tannin. This is very complex and sublime for about a period of 20-40 minutes, what else could you ask for from a 80 year old bottle of wine.
THANKS DAVE !!

Dark ruby red. Super ripe cherries covered in chocolate and dipped in brandy, hints of truffle, slightly funky with barnyard on the nose. Viscous, luscious and velvety, packed with endless reserves of ripe fruit with just a fading reminder of silky tannin. This wine shall be sipped and swirled in small quantity slowly pealing away the many layers of flavor the palate has to offer, all that wrapped in a blanket of refreshing acidity that keeps you coming back for more. Truly spectacular. Drinking great now with mostly primary characteristics. Impressive length and balance.
