    (Chateau d'Issan Margaux) This still has a red fruit profile as it did when I last tasted it in 2003, although it is fairly reticent today. A lean palate, showing a lot of structure with a rather thin coating of texture. But overall it is rather muted, inexpressive, but I suspect this is just an awkward stage. Very difficult to judge in its current condition.

    (Chateau d'Issan Margaux) A restrained, slightly medicinal, red-fruit nose, again with a touch of beetroot like the 1996, and a little oak still. Impressively dense and structured palate, with firm tannin underpinning plenty of sweet fruit and correct acidity. This needs five years in the cellar.
