    November 8, 2014 - Not bad, decanted for 30 minutes prior.
    Sweet succulent red and black fruits.
    Not much secondary development.
    Smooth tannins with shortish finish.

    November 5, 2014 - Decanted two hours, followed over two hours. Shows good promise but still tight and not giving up much aromatically. Zero green notes I typically associate with '04's, medium on the mid-palate. Beautiful roast meat notes on the back end. Not going to touch my others for another year or two in hopes they open up a bit more.

    October 10, 2014 - They seem to have coped quite differently with aging but this one was fabulous: Flowery perfumed nose with some turpentine faintly – and nicely added; elegant and quite big… Incy palate, very elegant and powerful at the same time, sweet and balanced, black fruits again with the turpentine squeezing in, flowers and a roasted earthy feel….….A beautiful and fully mature and integrated wine.....the essense of Margaux

    August 20, 2014 - A beautiful floral nose with raspberry. Medium/dark ruby. Medium body with flavors of current, tart berry and mineral. Nice balance on the medium finish.

    August 20, 2014 - Glossy, dusky garnet stone color. Smooth entry. Tangy red currants and faint green bell pepper, which is a note I seem to get in some of the slightly lesser vintages. The vintage also shows a little bit in the relatively shorter finish. Really a nice, polished wine. This is drinking well right now and with good energy. I recently had the 2003 version and whereas that had no green bell pepper, it also had a solid medium body and this is somewhat more trim. I'm glad I've got a few more. This paired well with marinated, grilled beef kebabs. 89

    (Chateau Malescot St-Exupéry Margaux) Very closed down. Fine texture and weight on the palate though, with well knit, supple, velutinous tannins. Lots of texture and presence here, with firm acidity. The character is difficult to assess in such a closed state, but this will be wonderful after a at least a decade in the cellar.
