  • My last bottle shows younger than my prior note. I feel higher extract and more grip. This proves wine is alive. There are tertiary notes but there's also cassis and blackberry on the nose. Dry on the palate, medium body, medium acid and velvety tannins. Finish is of mid length. Very good bottle at 47 years old.

  • Six years later, this still drinking well. Very surprised at the longevity of this wine. Never would have thought that it would survive 44 years of age. Well done Chateau d'Angludet!
    Age shows in color and nose but the tertiary aromas are accompanied by some dar fruit that makes this so interesting. Tannins fully resolved of course and it may be somewhat passed peak but still drinking well. The medium plus acidity is definitely helping. Happy I kept some. I wonder if they will survive a few years more. Only time will tell. Cheers!

  • Second bottle of this wine and significantly better. Good fill level and cork in excellent condition. Very impressive clarity and hue for a wine this edge.
    The nose alone tells you that it is a 1975 wine from Medoc; nothing feminine or charming about this Margaux. Nose of pencil shaving, iron, faint tobacco, not that different from the 1975 Cos from the other end of the Medoc. Not very complex or evolved for its age. It's one of the 75s that may never offer much.
    The fruit has mostly dried up leaving behind some very severe tannins and little else. Only downhill from here...

  • Still alive with fruit and in balance! Past its peak, still a great treat.

  • Sound cork. Popped and tasted. Some initial musty aromas. Sweet red fruit, cedar, tobacco, dried flowers. Tannin is mostly gone and there was a lingering mustiness, like cork taint but not quite. Nothing strong left in this bottle but still pleasant with the correct food. Unmistakeably Margaux.
