Tasted blind at Farr’s 2002 Bordeaux tasting. Very refined on the nose...definitely First Growth quality with a beautiful floral scent. Margaux? Black cherries, a touch of cassis, violets and wild hedgerow. Superb... Tasted blind at Farr’s 2002 Bordeaux tasting. Very refined on the nose...definitely First Growth quality with a beautiful floral scent. Margaux? Black cherries, a touch of cassis, violets and wild hedgerow. Superb clarity. Ripe succulent entry, very pure and very harmonious with filigree tannins and a natural, graceful finish that belies its power.

Performing better from bottle than at any time in cask (which of course is the objective of great winemaking, isn’t it?), this wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color in a style somewhat reminiscent of the 1988 but with more power, concentration, and volume. It has a beautifully elegant nose of black fruits intermixed with truffle, flower, and oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, dense, with wonderful precision, freshness, and a long, full-bodied finish with impressive levels of concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030. - Robert Parker

This has hit its stride fully now, with a lightly mulled edge to the core of plum and blackberry fruit, while dark tea and singed iron notes fill in through the finish. Lovely and lingering dark perfume and charcoal hints...

Lovely and lingering dark perfume and charcoal hints gild the finish.—Non-blind Château Margaux vertical (December 2013). Drink now through 2025. 12,500 cases made. –JM

Bright deep red. Classic aromas of boysenberry black cherry minerals and lead pencil. Then juicy and penetrating with cabernet-dominated berry and mineral flavors (there's a very low 8% merlot in the blend). Finishes with... Bright deep red. Classic aromas of boysenberry black cherry minerals and lead pencil. Then juicy and penetrating with cabernet-dominated berry and mineral flavors (there's a very low 8% merlot in the blend). Finishes with very firm youthfully tough tannins that will require a good decade of patience.
