Description

*** 93 Points - Robert parker ***

Reviews: This wine is just now reaching full maturity, much later than I initially expected. It is a classy, elegant example of Margauxpossessing a dark ruby/purple color, and a moderately intense nose of sweet black currant fruit intermixed with minerals, vanillin, and floral scents. The wine is medium-bodied, with beautifully sweet fruit. This linear, more compressed style of Margaux possesses a good inner-core of sweet fruit, and a charming, harmonious personality. Although not a blockbuster, it is aging effortlessly, and appears to take on more character with each passing year." Robert Parker. Bordeaux 3rd Ed.

"A deep garnet core. A knock-out nose of ripe raspberry, burnt toast and roasted herbs. The palate was initially quite aggressive and tannic (just as Michael Broadbent comments) but with an hour in the glass, the wine smoothes out, though loses its fruit intensity and finesse. Not as elegant as the 1978, but still a fine Margaux for the vintage, though not in the league of the 1980`s wine. A burly, masculine Margaux to be drunk before 2006. Tasted April 2003." Neil Martin, Wine Journal.
