RATINGS

95Wine Enthusiast

Still dry and concentrated and with swathes of rich tannins, the wine is dark and dense. The undertow of ripe black fruit is impressive...

93Vinous / IWC

...has a slightly muddled bouquet with tertiary/woodland scents infusing the broody black fruit, austere but attractive... The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, supple and focused. There is lovely balance and poise...with a tensile and precise finish that lingers long in the mouth. Excellent...

92The Wine Advocate

...there is more fruit concentration with red cherries, raspberry and blackcurrant laced with cedar and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, pure red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit with a precise finish...

91Wine Spectator

This shows a caressing feel from the start, with alluring black tea and incense notes weaving around lightly macerated plum, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors. A floral accent gilds the finish. Pretty wine.

17Jancis Robinson

... Mellow, warm, complex nose. Lots of pleasure and lift. Some maturity and charm, though the finish is pretty dry. Clean, brisk finish and real persistence.

REGION

France, Bordeaux, Margaux

Margaux is one of Bordeaux’s most famous appellations and also one of its largest, with about 3,400 acres of vineyards. Located on the Left Bank of the Gironde River, Margaux has the greatest number of classified-growth châteaux (or crus classé) according to the 1855 classification. There are twenty-one crus classé, including the most famous estate, the first growth Château Margaux. The Margaux appellation includes vineyards around the village of Margaux and the villages of Arsac, Cantenac, d’Issan, Labarde and Soussans. Wines from the best Margaux châteaux and vintages are prized for their perfumey fragrance and elegant, silky mouthfeel. Margaux wines are predominately Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
