89 pts A wise man once said, Margaux is a beautiful mistress. True she is mystical, like a dream she is just out of reach and so alluring and this is insane value. A very good Margaux vintage. Entering its window now, the nose is med and very alluring, earthy black fruit, cedar and wet tea bags, toffee whiffs, it needs focus and is pure pleasure to concentrate on every step. The palate is dark fruit, pencil lead with more tea leaves, good complexity, excellent intensity and a finish which is broad, long and elegant integrated tannin. Very much enjoyed.

The cork was rotten. The wine was good, well balanced. But lacking fruit. Definitely not worth the $45.

Aerate and decanter for some time before drinking. Mellowed. My date Janine looks great!
