I´m normally not the biggest fan of Bordeaux, but here you recognize immediately that you have something very special in your glass. Decanted and consumed over three hours.
The colour is still very youthful, clear, very dense, dark core, slightly lighter on the edges.
The clean nose delivers a medium intense mix of tobacco, soy sauce, underbrush, pencil shaving and a hint of lovage. Interesting notice: When you fill your glass and don´t swirl, you also get a decent amount of fruit flavors like wild strawberry, blackberry and a hint of cassis.
All in all not the most expressive nose but very dynamic, constantly changing. Cool, elegant, in my personal opinion nearly a bit withdrawn.
I´m always talking about a really good/great wine if the Balance is there. And here you have it. Wonderful play between the lively acidity, super fine but recognisable tannins and still some fruit. Although this Margaux gets its Charm from the sheer elegance, it delivers enough power & tension. Wonderful length with slightly edges on the back-end which props my theory that it will develop further in the next years. But I have to say, that I´m absolutely not familiar with this caliber of wines so I could be totally wrong. Definitely no hurry to drink it up soon. A truly wonderful showing. — 11 days ago
Beautiful red with amber tones on the edge. Claret nose with beefy aroma- rich mouth feel and resolved tannins. For a lower growth the wine shows the quality of the vintage - very nice wine still has more years of life. — 10 days ago

Deep dark tawny color. Opaque. Fragrant nose right off the bat which says "this will be better than any of the other half dozen 82 LBs you've had". Notes of forest redwood, cigar leaf, moist earth, menthol and dark dusty berries. So rich and smooth in the mouth. Great balance of fruit and structure. Yes, best 82 LB I've had. Drink if you want today, but I don't think well stored bottles like this are going to be in decline anytime soon. — 10 days ago
Still a baby. Gorgeous bouquet with notes of violet followed by cassis and blue fruits on the palate and spices on the finish. Will only get better with age. — a day ago
