High shoulder fill. Sour red cherry and black tea notes. Tobacco. Lighter-medium bodied, subdued, and feminine. Great texture on the front, with some coarser tannins that come out on the finish and are unlikely to resolve. Some floral hints. Nice wine; fully mature.
Light cola, spice, soap, and chalkiness on the nose. Boysenberry and slight leather notes on the palate. Rather unimpressive and did not stand up particularly well to its companion vintages. Oddly paired with aged comte tart.

(Chateau Margaux Margaux) This undoubtedly has more depth than the other wines so far, it has maturity, and just a slight lack of clarity which may be related to decanting. On the nose there are notes of roasted meats, with rather bright fruit despite its maturity. There is also undeniably a mustiness to it, although later this disappeared leaving some cinder toffee and honeycomb notes. A full, sweet and rounded palate, with much more texture and grip than some preceding wines. This wine has a little more to give than any other from this commune, but this musty note makes it difficult to believe this wine is in tip-top condition and other bottles may be much better.
