    June 24, 2022 - Lovely nose shows black fruit,cedar,blond tobacco and some graphite.Unfortunately the palate doesn't comply at all,with harsh tannins and rather poor fruit.It lacked the depth and complexity expected from a First Growth.Decent,but disappointing for what it is.

    May 28, 2022 - Lots of blackberries, black cherries, and some dried fruit aromas. Much more fruit than I expected from a 20 year old Margaux. It also had leather, cedar. Tannins were entirely softened. But it felt young

    February 14, 2022 - Bordeaux 2002 First Growth Tasting 22 January 2022.
    So many Bordeaux reviews seem to be prefaced by second hand judgements on the vintage rather than actual responses to the wines, but putting those presumptions aside we found these to be a beautiful set of wines, all of them elegant, attractive and still fresh, with no signs of tiredness. Chateaux Margaux was unanimously voted #1 for its balance and harmony, fragrant bouquet with florals and spice, a gentle texture in the palate and an overall prettiness.

    October 29, 2021 - Utregs Wijnhuis tasting Exclusief (Utrecht): [Tasted blind] identified as left bank Bordeaux. Textbook classic aroma’s; cassis, black berries, complex fruit, ceder, eucalyptus, pencil shavings, coffee, chocolate. Comparable on the palate with a long lingering finish
    Perfectly balanced, lovely
