Deep brick red with a ruby hue. Lovely age on the nose with leather, dusty, mushrooms, dried cherries and a little dirty diaper. Medium tannins (6/10) and full bodied. Layered palate with notes of dried cherries, leaves, forest floor and truffles. Long finish. Drink till 2045.

Deep garnet red. Lovely nose with cedar, cigar box, tobacco leaves, and red cherries. Full bodied with medium tannins (7,5/10). Graphite on the palate followed by red cherries, dust, earth, dark spices and minerality. Nice balance throughout. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2040.

Tasted blind. Brownish red and cloudy. Opaque. Nose of cola, earth, cherry and Heath bar. Ok in the mouth but unfulfilling. Short finish. Tannins completely resolved. Liked it at first but with more air this collapses to notes of just soy sauce and port. Interesting to try.

Wasn’t expecting “much” of 88 Margaux but 😳 , it was a killer ! Plush, sexy, multilayered, everlasting finish, great oak integration and vivid acidity. Love the cedar-camphor- dry eucalyptus nose. This wine got it all right and had a truly great evolution.

A legendary wine! After 36 years, this bottle still shows fruit. Aged fig, dark currants, sweet cassis with notes of tar/charcoal bricks with undertones of cocoa espresso. I’d like another one, please.
