Cantenac Brown (14.5-15)                                                              


Intense, ripe Cabernet nose with good mid-palate flavour and good grip.


Chateau Margaux (19.5-20)                                               


This is wonderful, sweet fruit, great depth of flavour, ripe, soft tannins and great weight for Margaux. I love this wine; it is very long and still very typically elegant despite its intense fruit. A bit like ’83. Brilliant.


Pavillon Rouge de Margaux (17.5)                                                 


I liked this as well, ripe concentration of flavour, fine tannins, elegant, refined classic fine claret in a ripe year. Bravo.


Giscours (15.5)                                                                                


Attractive, intense ripeness here, really attractive, quite weighty and long.


Palmer (Not tasted)                                                                         


But most commentators I respect say this was fine wine with elegance.



Rauzan Ségla (15)                                                                           


Attractive, deep fruit, open nose, perhaps lacking a bit in the middle, but elegant.
