A deep garnet core with deep brick rim. The nose has moderate intensity, not the exuberance and exhilaration of the Haut-Brion, but expressive, with notes of blackberry, tar, a touch of leather and bilberry. What it does not have is Margaux's signature aroma of violets - this is more reserved and masculine. The palate is medium-bodied, quite peppery upon entry with good acidity and balance, yet missing the femininity and the finesse that marks out say the 1999 or the 2001. The finish is quite dry, perhaps a little dour compared to other Chateau Margaux. Neal Martin (eRobertParker.com)

Subtle beauty, nice fragrance, a classic but not outstanding vintage, tannins are much rounder, need time to open up, a carafe will help him for sure, great length - another beautiful occasion #winelover

Fantastic up front, but the finish was clipped short.

Was absolutely splendid after sitting in a decanter for 2 hours. With all the delicate yet powerful flavors you would expect from a first growth, and a very silky texture, and a finish that went on forever.

An elegant wine that shows its class in a tough vintage. Dried flowers, sweet rich cassis, blacktop. The real star tonight was the venue. About 35 minutes out from my old country farm and located in Kinston, NC is The Chef and the Farmer by Vivian Howard. An amazing farm to table with flair creation in the food graveyard of Eastern NC. Extraordinary apps and entrees, fresh modern but comfortable environs and friendliness from everyone....and I'm confident they have the best wine list for 250 miles. A true destination dining experience. Thank you @DAG for the recommendation and intro.
