Community Tasting Note

    January 11, 2020 - Decanted for an hour before serving. Perfume, black currant, sweet cedar, truffle and medicine. Palate was not fully expressive but it had lots of underlying substance pending to be fully unfolded. My third experience of the 90 Margaux. While I still do not believe it is on a similar level or better than the 90 Montrose, my faith has incrementally increased. Time is your friend.
