Disappointed with this wine. Pure Margaux but somehow lacking. Fruit, tannins and acid not yet combined. Sure there's some potential but somehow it still wouldn't be a good wine even if you were to give it time.

tasted blind with several other wines. Was a little cold and short on finish at first. Opened up after about 20 minutes. Lacked that floral/violet nose I like in Margaux..Still, a nice near to mid term drinker.

Young but enjoyable. Lacks the depth and richness of the '03 and '05, but is certainly well made accessible. Elegant example of Margaux, but a little thin.
