Two hour decant and drank over one more- improved out of bottle over time. Wonderfully expressive nose of flowers and slate, earth, graphite and camphor- Margaux showing through and showing off. Still a bit tight on entry w/ slight bitter edge initially but that fades over time. Almost turns creamy with dark pitted-fruit, charcoal, and a hint of rose petals. Dusty tannins that finishes with grip. Has the stuffing for easily another ten. So good it makes me want to open another bottle but I'll revisit in a year and again and again while trying to hold for another decade. 93+
