    August 14, 2021 - This was a special experience...the bottle was brought to a dinner at our house, by invitees. The acidity and tannins have faded and mellowed, but the flavors are now round and complex. I note particularly that the wine featured a (long) aftertaste that included a mixture of fenugreek and galangal, along with citron and tangerine peel. These were a surprise. I'm very glad to have been able to taste this gem.

    May 21, 2021 - Not the best year, but Margaux always makes pretty great wine snd this was no exception. A bit shy on opening. Needed some extra air to pull out the red velvety style. Very plush and enjoyable.

    December 15, 2019 - Absolutely spectacular for it being a ho-hum bdx vintage. Popped and decanted for sediment. This wine was so fragile and funky initially, but after about 15 minutes in the decanter that Margaux elegance started shining through. We were worried it would fade but it continued to stand up throughout the hour of enjoying it with friends. Fruit is definitely muted and the tannins have mostly faded, so I would drink now.

    June 26, 2017 - A private dinner @ Scharzhof. From magnum; drinking a wine from 1987 is always special to my, seeing it is my birth year. Not great, but still pretty good though. Turned out to be Veronika's birth year as well so she was also very glad with the generous in bringing of this bottle!
