[Barrel tasting] Black ruby in color, with violet and raspberry aromas and hints of currant and spices. Super, full-bodied, with thick, polished tannins. Should be chewy, and it is. But it remains fine and classy. Another 1995? I canrsquo;t give more than 100 points.

The 1988 has evolved nicely since I tasted it last year. It has a classic bouquet of violets and blackcurrants intertwined with the vanillin scents of new oak. Medium-bodied, concentrated, but tannic, this elegantly wrought wine should out-live the 1989, but will it ever provide as much pleasure? Anticipated maturity: 1996ndash;2015.

Bottled in late November, 2002, the 2000 has turned out to be a colossal example of Chateau Margaux that is tasting even better from bottle than it was from cask. Only 40% of the crop made it into this 2000 Margaux, a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. The 2000 possesses a saturated ruby/purple color to the rim as well as an extraordinarily promising nose of creme de cassis intermixed with white flowers, licorice, and hints of espresso and toasty oak. There is great intensity, compelling purity, a multi-layered, full-bodied palate, and a finish that goes on for nearly 70+ seconds. Bottled naturally, with no filtration, it is a monumental example of the elegance and power that symbolize this extraordinary vineyard. A tour de force in winemaking, many of my colleagues predicted, far earlier than me, that it would be the ldquo;wine of the vintage.rdquo; It is certainly one of the wines of the vintage, but there is plenty of competition, even at this lofty level of quality. Absolutely awesome! Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2050.

Muscular yet classy. Breathtaking aromas of black licorice, violets, berry and cherry, with light hints of spices and minerals; itrsquo;s all there in the nose. Full-bodied, with an ultrafine tannin structure, and a finish that persists for minutes. This may turn out to be even better than the 1995 due to its layers and layers of fine tannins and fruit, but I canrsquo;t give it more than 100 points. Best after 2015.

Penetrating, highly perfumed aromas of sappy dark berries, violet and minerals; seems less oaky today than the rsquo;01. Offers compelling mouthfilling concentration and perfume. A wine of great power and consistency, with a pungent minerality lingering on the palate-staining finish. This somehow doesnrsquo;t flag or grow narrower even after one swallows or sips. Makes the 2002 seem almost dry in comparison. Wine-of-the-vintage material.

The sexy, dark plum/purple-colored 1999 Margaux is already revealing complex aromatics. This surprisingly charming and round offering is reminiscent of a vintage such as 1985. Although neither a blockbuster nor a heavyweight, it grows in the mouth revealing tremendous length as well as purity. Administrator Paul Pontallier prefers it to the more austere 1998, as do I. This is an archetypical Chacirc;teau Margaux of richness, finesse, balance, and symmetry. It can be drunk young, but promises to age nicely for two decades. Extrapolating backwards, it would probably have something in common with the underrated 1962 Meacute;docs.

[Barrel tasting] Lovely perfumes of blackberries, cherries, minerals and light toasted oak. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, long caressing finish. A big, silky, sexy red. It has the potential to be 100 points. Fantastic. Margaux has such power, yet itrsquo;s refined and elegant. Still not in bottle in early December.
