    April 21, 2022 - Wow, the nose on this is like a primordial oasis. Youthful for sure but still incredibly giving with a really thick silky texture and gorgeously concentrated
    black and blue fruits. There is stunning depth to this Margaux yet it retains the perfume and playfulness of the absolute best vintages here making this just a fabulous wine to drink now or later. There is an almost unearthly smell and taste that is impossible to describe other than its heaven-sent. 97+

    April 5, 2022 - Now, you are talking. This is a heat-stopping vintage of Margaux. The perfume, with its lavender, lilacs, currants, plums, cedar and tobacco hits you. But it is the rich, opulent, silky, sensuous, multi-layered palate presence with its seamless finish that steals the show. Drink this now, or age it for 2-3-4 decades!

    December 22, 2021 - :45 decant at Linda’s Xmas dinner.
    Needed more time.
    Blueberry, graphite,and chalk with smooth tannins and some tobacco on the finish but still primary
    My score may improve in subsequent years or with a longer decant.

    (Château Margaux) Pencil lead and beeswax nose; tight, but nice mid-palate, with flavors of fig and anise; long finish
