opened a couple of years to early. but still a knock out wine as all marguax are and what you expect. it has very few sustitues in the same wine range of quality texture and complexity but the fun is to store these and go seeking out equivallents, enjoy this at great cost as sadness will come when you run out ...

Ultraconcentrated with layers and layers of fruit and superfine tannins. Plenty of fruit mineral and meat character. Full-bodied yet refined and classy it coats your palate with gorgeous fruit and ripe tannins. Truly superb. One of the wines of the vintage. Best after 2012. 10 830 cases made. Wine Spectator.

Bright ruby-red. Boysenberry, minerals, espresso and sexy oak on the nose. Wonderfully concentrated flavors of berries and espresso, with perfect integration of the new oak. But a bit youthfully rigid today owing to its penetrating acids. This impressively dense wine from a very cool summer has filled in nicely during its elevage but will require a good 10 or 12 years for its firm acids and tight tannins to soften. Very long and subtle on the aftertaste.

This is beautiful on the nose with currants, berries and flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and pretty fruit. Needs a bit more fruit on the midpalate to be a classic Margaux, but clearly outstanding. Best after 2007.

Weight-wise, the 2002 is reminiscent of the 1999 Margaux. However, the 2002, a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, reveals some of the stylistic characteristics of the 1996, but without the power, density, and perfection of that great wine. The color is a healthy deep ruby/purple, and the aromas reveal notes of black currants, licorice, dried herbs, vanilla, and loamy soil. While it is medium-bodied, with noteworthy purity, elegance, and stature, it does not possess the extraordinary flavor dimensions, persistence, or surreal quality level found in the 2000, 1996, 1995, 1990, 1986, 1985, 1983, and 1982. Nevertheless, it is a lustrous effort from this noble estate so meticulously run by the Mentzelopoulos family and their brilliant administrator, Paul Pontallier. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2026.

Wine of the vintage and the greatest Château Margaux ever produced. A stunning red. The essence of raspberry, violet and berry, with hints of vanilla and toasted oak. Full-bodied and thick, yet racy, with masses of tannins and a harmonious structure. Long, long finish. Best after 2005.

An absolute classic; incredibly concentrated, complex, elegant and firm without a hint of hardness. Layers of blackberry, cassis, plum, cedar, vanilla and spice, yet there is also a sense of reserve, indicating this has plenty of room to grow. Best from 1995 through 2000.
