    February 18, 2020 - Dinner at Margeaux Brasserie (Chicago, IL): A little more forward and ripe than the 1970, with the fruit showing more prominently, but at the same time you've lost some of the green herbs and other perfumy elements. There's a meaty, bloody component to the nose that is quite interesting, while the palate doesn't show that at all. Quite good, but I definitely preferred the older vintage.
