Classic Bordeaux nose of cassis, cigar box and forest floor. Fruit is fading, soft tannins and notable acidity. Lengthy wet earth finish. Single bottle and only time I’ve tasted this chateau. Although enjoyable it was not what I was hoping for in a Grand Cru Classé from Margaux. Perhaps an off bottle?

Muted dark berry and leather nose. Blackberry and leather again are prominent in the mouth with soft tannins and above average acidity. Not sure whether this is beginning to fade or a bit dormant before heading into another phase. Medium length smooth finish. Going to wait another 5 years before trying this again.
