Description

    Chateau Margaux 1988
    Margaux
    Bottle (6)
    "...full-bodied, rather muscular style, with a dark, almost opaque garnet color and a big, smoky, earthy nose, with hints of compost, melted asphalt, black fruits, mushrooms, and new oak... plenty of tough-textured tannin and an almost rustic, corpulent style to it." (89pts Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 4th Ed., Jan 2003)

(89 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 4th Ed., Jan. 2003)

    “This has both sinew and flesh, with taut dried red currant, blackberry and plum skin notes that are forced to expand outward as the core of black tea, charcoal, plum paste and dark humus fills in quickly behind them. The charcoal-tinged grip carries the finish, with more bass than treble at first, but there's perfume here as well. Seriously long and the most overlooked of the truly great vintages here.” (95 pts, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 2014)
