    May 31, 2024 - Mixed feelings about this one, not great at first this seemed to gain some poise with air and fill out but never got the length that you’d want from a first growth even though there was decent depth and nice aged complexity; fully resolved.

    May 18, 2024 - Strawberries and ripe greengage plum with a savoury herb basket, ripe berries strewn with cream

    Fresh acidity makes it seem much younger

    Still a red core with bricking evident around the rim

    Delicious

    Drink now

    May 16, 2024 - Everything a mature Margaux should be with an amazing silky texture and a complex, refined finish. Not a blockbuster by any means but the great Margaux elegance shows here in spades. Fully mature and ready.

    February 3, 2024 - Bought as futures. Stored at 55F. Brought to dinner at NY steak restaurant. Waiter nearly lost the cork but managed to screen out wet bits away from the decanter. Moderate sediment at bottom of bottle. Amazing this one still has minimal bricking. Aromatic with muted tobacco notes. Minimal yet sufficient tannins balanced nicely with darkish fruit notes and held up well with fatty steak. This one is still in the perfect drinking zone which, honestly, you could probably still say so in 10 years. BTW, the case cost me $350 back in 1984!
