    June 21, 2022 - Good mature bordeaux. Very cassis-centric notes, with occasional burst of smokey / tobacco / Merlot notes. The tannins are super fine, and the palate is silky as usual for a Ch. Margaux. It keeps evolving in a good way for only about 5 hours. Better drink up up.

    March 3, 2022 - A little disappointing bottle. Lacking fruit and intensity. Blind would guess Pauillac with a little tobacco and cigar box.

    March 3, 2022 - During a Commanderie event. Similar to my last tasting note. Good nose of cedar, tobacco and cloves. The palate is rather modest, a touch too lean with marked acidity. The thinness of the 1998 left bank cannot fully hide. The stellar 1998 Evangile next to it blew it away.
