    May 5, 2016 - I really enjoyed this wine. Decanted about ninety minutes. Deep purple. Nice nose - not the classic old bordeaux but very pleasant. Full bodied, rich, complex, deep black and purple fruit. Incredibly long finish. Excellent wine.

    May 2, 2016 - Decanted at club....wine performed very nicely and as described by Xavier A. Years to go and still youngish, but very nicely balanced and delightful to drink

    November 9, 2015 - It has taken fifteen years, but this has now turned into quite a lovely wine. Slightly more modest perhaps than would correspond with its exalted status, but a classic Margaux nonetheless. Mature but lively appearance; classic, mature claret nose; slender and fresh on the palate, with juicy and gentle red berry fruit that is sweet enough to balance the gravelly minerality, hints of spices and herbs, balanced and with some elegance, tannins have softened; nice fruit and a hint of eucalyptus on the finish, good to very good length.
