I gave it some time out of the bottle which would lead to more plummy notes, more ripe and also almost raw pear, interestingly, and a hints more of baking spice. The tannins were perfect from the top. As was the alcohol level. And body. So inoffensive in every way. Other than that unremarkable but right in line with what I paid for a magnum. Fucking simple but also totally delicious and so swillable with stuffing and cranberry which is all I need. For the price I’d try again for a dinner of tastiness that I don’t need to think too much about. — 17 days ago
Drinking very well now and delivering everything you’d expect from a Margaux of this class. Lovely. — a day ago
A lovely enveloping feminine nose. Raspberry and real fresh, soft rose-inflected fruit. Generous and very pure. From mag, so pretty slow-evolved. Really classy and focused. This is a pristine bottle and it is beautifully mature yet fresh- generous and delicate but with real depth.

Celebrating two newly mint doctors in the family!
Bricked garnet. Transparent, clear. Medium width rim.
Bouquet of espresso, cassis, blackberry, potpurri, dry rose petal.
Structurally resolved. Smooth, agreeable traces of tannin. Med plus acidity. Medium bodied. Dry. Complex notes of cassis, blackberry, dark cherry, cattle range, newly ploughed paddy field, mineral high tone, light touched, floral perfume. Delicate but very much present.
Superb old school Margaux. No heaviness, no excess. A birth year wine that delivers. 93. — 15 days ago
An experiment for me that appears to have worked. A lovely Bdx example that has aged gracefully. Still so fresh. Lovely notes of plums and blackberries, delicate oak treatment, finishing with a hint of licorice. Plush tannins and soft acidity. Very nice indeed. — 12 days ago
16.5/20 (90/100) Вино с достаточно интенсивным букетом ароматов сухой ежевики, варенья из чёрной смородины, ментола, корицы, чёрного перца, сигарной коробке. К сожалению, очень скоро подлесок начинает доминировать. Свежая кислотность и интенсивные, сухие танины. Во вкусе вино куда как более сдержанно, чем в аромате. Очень неплохо для своего возраста. — 2 days ago
Still young, after 2 hours in the decanter the strong tannins softened. Delicious, flavours of dried figs and black fruit, I will definitely drink it again. — 8 days ago
