This is a gem of a #Margaux. #grandcruclassé I've given it a 9 based on an excessive resemblance to a Scotch single malt whiskey. It has very smoky peaty qualities and the texture (don't get me wrong, I loved it) was equally waxy or oily.

Very expressive floral and graphite nose that had the intensity of perfume. A dinner companion said she would like to wear it. The palate was silky bordering on soft. Not very complex. How I was hoping the palate was close to the nose.

4th Growth! Impressed with the amount of fruit still on this beauty. Blooming violet's and roses, blueberry, black plum, figs, spicy tobacco, crushed granite. Firm, dry silky tannin and still loads of acidity after these 32 years. Can't wait to see how it opens over the evening. My parents bought this at the chateau the year I was born ('89). Full circle feeling, full circle wine, Merry Christmas!

Still smokin, nice earthy, gamey notes, with some dried herbs and black fruit

Perfect with Filet. Balanced but made for the long haul. Taut tannins and earthy fruit combine for long, satisfying finish.
