    Château Margaux 1985
    Margaux, 1er cru classé
    Offered in original wooden cases
    Levels into neck
    Tasting note: Evolving perfectly through the 1990s and by the Millennium almost beyond description. ‘Soft, feminine yet determined’. Six notes since. Surprisingly deep; lovely, rich, complex, many-layered bouquet. In March 2005: deep, velvety; very good flavour, leaner than expected, dry finish. Most recently: fairly deep, impressive, black cherry core yet mature; typically appealing, forthcoming bouquet; sweet and soft, wonderful flesh and flavour, good finish. Easy to drink by itself. Last tasted April 2006 ***** Now – 2020. MB.
