Tasting Notes Details

Chateau Margaux

Bordeaux blend - 1985

When you hang out with Jancis Robinson and Fiona Morrison - the lady of Le Pin - chateaux owners open fine wines like this at dinner. Now in his 80s, Jean-Michel Cazes hosted dinner for us at the family's Caf? Lavinale in the hamlet of Bages and it was so fragile and delicate, it felt like a fine rock about to crumble. It was fully developed so just as well we drank it and enjoyed its fine concentration, smoky, sweet dried plum character. A real experience.
