    Château Margaux 1989
    Margaux, 1er cru classé
    In original wooden case. Levels into neck
    Tasting note: At Wagner’s vertical in Nov 2000, I rated it second only to the ’45. Sweet, soft, rich – a lovely wine. Last tasted, blind, from a jeroboam: very deep, almost opaque, cherry-tinged but maturing; singed spicy bouquet; drier than expected, stern, firm but with very good flavour. Last tasted Oct 2001 ****(*) Now – 2025 M.B.
    6 bottles per lot
