    October 16, 2021 - Opened in AM and double decanted one hour before dinner. Not much bouquet but delicious with nicely tart acidity. Tannins resolved. Still a pleasant, sophisticated, elegant Margaux with at least a few years good to go for any unopened bottles out there. This was pristine buy from Fine Wines International from a Bordeaux negociant. Fill not noticeably reduced and not recorked, teased it out in two pieces with no crumbling.

    August 25, 2020 - Dried bread, sweet bell peppers, swiss beef seasoning (Streu-Mi), warm, fills the whole palate but remains elegant. Stunning for a second wine!

    July 4, 2019 - Still great wine. It opens up in the glass in several hours.
