    Love this old-school style with tons of perfumed fruit and deep mineral quality. Extreme elegance and stupendous depth with the tiniest hint of earthy brett. This wine easily bests several more renowned chateaux at multiples of the price.

    Incredibly alive and well, and very impressive as well. Beautiful sweet floral notes on the nose, followed on the palate by appealing notes of leather and truffles and exotics spices. Still have plenty of fruit and life ahead of it.

    From the great '89 vintage and now at the peak of maturity, this is one of the best deals in an older Bordeaux we currently offer. A perfect marriage of youthful fruit and aged character developed slowly over time in bottle. Sweet cherry notes combine with more savory "sous bois" character and hints of exotic spice - sandalwood and cinnamon. Fine tannins, now nearly fully resolved, frame the finish. A lovely, older Margaux that you should enjoy with beef or lamb and plenty of good company.

    This little known 5th Growth Margaux was a hit at my recent tasting in San Francisco and deserves some respect for being such a great value. The quality of the '89 vintage shines through here and a quarter century of age lands this at perfect maturity. This is elegant, soft and floral with hints of truffle, balsom, cedar, dried flowers and brown sugar drifting through the silky, sweet fruit.

    Old school Margaux wine from the great 1989 vintage for under $100. We tasted it in April and bought all we could find on the spot. If you like old school Bordeaux without all the oak and extract, try this one. Some violets on the nose and palate. A food wine for sure--try it with a piece of prime rib. Update-just tasted it on Sept 5th with famous Bordeaux negociant and we loved it. So sweet up front and a lingering finish. perfect with my duck confit and his salmon.
    Drink from 2016 to 2020
