All in finesse, with berry, currant and light vanilla character. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely, long finish. Gorgeous core of fruit in this wine. Drink now through 2004.

The 1988 Margaux has a classic bouquet of violets and blackcurrants intertwined with the vanillin scents of new oak. Medium bodied, decently concentrated, but extremely hard and tannic, this surprisingly tough-textured, stern wine should outlive the 1989. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015.

The 1997 Château Margaux is an immensely charming, open-knit, beautifully made wine offering soft, lush blackberry/cassis fruit intermixed with toasty oak. The wine exhibits excellent concentration, a seductive personality, and an easy-going, round, expansive finish. It should be drinkable after bottling in June, and last for 15 or more years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015.

A great Bordeaux that only needs time to develop. Seductive, with a superb concentration of vanilla, spice, blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors. Has an iron backbone of tannins, but it still shows class and finesse. Seems to last forever on the palate. Try after 1999. 25,000 cases made.

Bright full ruby. Pure, perfumed aromas of cassis and violet. Dense and tactile in the mouth; a huge, chewy wine with major extract but also considerable refinement. Almost painfully backward today, and a bit less perfumed than is was in the year or so after the bottling, but the huge tannins show no hardness. Another great expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the '96 vintage. Drink 2015 through 2040.

A tight and silky red, with lots to offer - currant, tobacco and cherry character, medium to full body, fine tannins and a long, long finish. Just needs time. Best after 2006.

Black color. Minty, with loads of violet and berry character and hints of spice. Full-bodied, racy and fine, with silky tannins and a long finish. One of the top wines of the vintage. Give it some time, but who can wait?
