    February 21, 2020 - Omg, my first perfect wine. This is simply PERFECT. Amazing nose your can sniff all day. Wonderful palate with super long finish. In terms of favour it got everything you expect from the top mature bordeaux e.g. black berries, pencil, earthy, forest, truffle. It’s still fruity and youthful but at the same time got amazing secondary favour. It will be last for decades but perfect right now. Celebrating my 30th birthday with my birth vintage wine.

    January 11, 2020 - Decanted for an hour before serving. Perfume, black currant, sweet cedar, truffle and medicine. Palate was not fully expressive but it had lots of underlying substance pending to be fully unfolded. My third experience of the 90 Margaux. While I still do not believe it is on a similar level or better than the 90 Montrose, my faith has incrementally increased. Time is your friend.

    January 3, 2020 - Popped and poured into decanter. Similar to previous note except a bit weaker on both nose and palate. Complexity evolved over a couple hours and was amazing until gone.

    December 16, 2019 - A small impromptu dinner - 08 Champagne and Chateau Margaux (Clarity - Vienna, Virginia): Youthful expressive nose displaying intense ripe black fruit, crème de cassis dominates, blueberry concentrate, stewed blackberry, a hint of licorice, lavender, dark caramel, lavender and earth. Exceptional concentration, layers upon layers of decadent concentrated black fruit, silky and sensual, perfect amount of acidity and mineral, nicely resolved tannins and a long intense black fruit driven finish with caramel and rose at the end. The silky palate is to die for. I have consistently rated the 90 Margaux perfect until 2017. It has become slightly softer and not as intense and expressive. Nevertheless, it is an incredible wine with a long life ahead.

    December 8, 2019 - Sampler. Expressive nose, earthy, dark fruit, green notes, light iron. Similar on the palate, smooth, tart black fruit, good balance and structure. Long finish. 93-94. Expected more given scores.
