This surprisingly charming and round offering is reminiscent of a vintage such as 1985. Although neither a blockbuster nor a heavyweight it grows in the mouth revealing tremendous length as well as purity. Administrator Paul Pontallier prefers it to the more austere 1998 as do I. This is an archetypical Chateau Margaux of richness finesse balance and symmetry. It can be drunk young but promises to age nicely for two decades. Extrapolating backwards it would probably have something in common with the underrated 1962 Medocs.

Silky seamless and enveloping but the wine's excellent vinosity gives its creamy fruit very good definition. Consistent from start to finish. Tannins are substantial but fine allowing the fruit and floral flavors to linger impressively. Along with Latour an early candidate for the wine of the vintage.

Scented, biscuit, sweet nose. Exciting. Real energy here. There's a hint of milk chocolate and slightly dry tannins but it would make a good bottle to drink now. 17.5+/20
