“I would have imagined that the combination of Margaux and 1976 would have been a marriage made in heaven. Alas, at best a registry office matrimonial agreement. It was towards the end of the Ginestets’ tenure; they were in financial trouble and simply could not afford a benchful of even old ladies to do the sorting. The last two notes made at Wagner’s useful vertical tastings. At the first, in 1979, it exhibited a faded fragrance and some charm; fairly sweet, nice weight, quite good flavour but an acidic tendency. At the second, a very mature, open appearance with ’75- like orange tinge. Bouquet fragrant, offering itself like an eager divorcee.” (Michael Broadbent’s Vintage Wine, pg 89)
