Cassis on the nose, with leather, dried red berries, herbs, very elegant. Superclassic left bank claret. Taste is medium bodied, elegant, sleek and long. Firm all the way through, lots of red berries, cassis, tobacco. A very fresh and lively wine, a classic claret from a sleeper vintage!
This was somewhat of a disappointment, but what else to expect really?
Way past its peak. Nose is dusty with lots of dried fruit, a little funky stable floor, leather, tobacco, some green notes and wet wheat biscuits. There is plenty here that reminds me of old vintage port.
Medium+ acidity, very dry but with some fruit left that reminds me a lot of raisins. Distinct, but mature tannins. Decent intensity and a fairly long finish. Better on the palate than on the nose.
Bottle and level in excellent condition. Due to sediment insise, decided to decant. This wine survived over 4 hours and improved after two hours. Am a sucker for old vintage, but this Margaux topped them all. In all honesty its over its peak, but one can still enjoy it very much.
