    Château Margaux 1986
    Margaux, 1er cru classé
    Offered in an original wooden case
    One slightly damaged capsule, one slightly raised cork. Pristine labels. Levels base of neck or better
    Tasting note: A masculine Margaux. Most recently, still opaque and youthful-looking: crisp fruit, opening up beautifully; sweet, lovely fruit, attractive but very tannic. Last tasted Nov 2000 **(***)? Give it lots of time. M.B.
