Carlsonjok and Albatrossity2,

Back in the early 1990s, on the advice of a friend, I put away a few bottles of Margaux.  I finally opened a 1989 Prieure-Lichine last year and it was fabulous. I have a couple of 1988s that I am eyeing laviciously and a 2001 that I just stored away.

My tasting notes indicate that we had the 1949, 1953, 1955, 1959 and 1961. The '49 and '53 were stunning,

Of course you must now realise that I hate you both with envy inspired passion that borders on the holy!  :angry:

Oh not really! Yup as indicated the problem with Margaux is they are not cheap and Ch Margaux are even more not cheap. I celebrated the sale of my first house, my wife's PhD and my PhD with Margaux...and later on champagne, but the Margaux was the real treat.

The '49 Ch can but dream! And the late 80's vintages are just coming in like you say Carlson, they are meant to be very very good. {looks in wallet} I may wait a while!
