    August 7, 2022 - This is in its early drinking window, but you would hope it has years of development ahead of it, and I am puzzled by some reviews suggesting that this needs to be drunk up. I suspect that deadline is half a century away. It has all the potential to be a Margaux great, but it is dragging its heels and possibly will never quite get there. The nose is a delight of delicate floral notes with cherry and raspberry. Surprisingly the small quality of Cabernet Franc is making its presence felt with faint background hints of bell pepper on the palate. The depth of the palate and finish is excellent with the latter pushing 60 seconds. However, the tannin is enamel stripping. Interestingly many of the top left bankers from 1995 are starting to dramatically shed their tannin, but will it happen with the Margaux.

    July 29, 2022 - Dégusté avec Latour 1996 et 1998. Assez beau nez, bouche puissante et plutôt fermée, je doute que cela s’ouvre beaucoup plus, pas caractéristique de Margaux. 90-91

    Tasted with Latour 96 and 98. Nice nose, powerful and closed palate, i doubt it will open up, not very characteristic of Margaux unfortunately.

    May 31, 2022 - Popped and poured at a restaurant. A bit of lightening at the rim. Rich Margaux nose. Drank very well with an extended long finish. Would have been nice to have a one hour decant but still very nice. I think it is time to drink up.

    May 20, 2022 - Black cherry, blueberry, pomegranate?, nose is all cedar, cigar/tobacco, light touch of green pepper, touch of chocolate. This is really nice. Still my least favorite first growth, great by any other standard. At peak, drink up
