Firm, unyielding, and closed, this will need another decade. After a few hours some currant fruit poked through, but at this point it’s mostly earth, iron/mineral, and herbal notes. Very classic/traditional, and will appeal to that set, but to me a high floor/low ceiling kind of wine.

Vintage 2012 - well, no real depth in this wine but it's a Point and lovely now. Pencilshaving and minerals in the smell and its best quality is a real silky taste. Archetypical Margaux. A joy to drink.

Lovely wine still has a few years to go, yet with a bit of air it opens up and show its lovely character. Deep red with light brawn rims, lovely rich nose, black currents, coffee, leather, cassis, chocolate and a touch of tea leaves, full body, dry round tannins,great acidity, lovely mouth filling structure, delicious finish. A truly well made wine that had benefitted for 16 years of aging. My score 90, doing better than some nice grad crus of this vintage. Drink to 2021 perhaps longer.

Imported by some fly by night company called "Stacole fine wines"- sketchy.
