I had this wine both in Seoul Korea in February and from my cellar in December 2008 and it was remarkable how identical the wines smelled and tasted. It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers camphor sweet red and black fruits a hint of licorice and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity but an opulent full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux.

This has utterly compelling mouthfilling richness. Finishes smooth and endless with great breadth. This wine showed fabulous potential from barrel but this is the first truly outstanding bottle I've had. Drink 2005 through 2035.
