RATINGS

94James Suckling

Aromas of blueberries and stone with some dried-flower notes. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a medium finish. Linear and refined with a very fine line of tannins running through it.

93The Wine Advocate

...redolent of warm red and black currants, kirsch and raspberry pie on the nose with floral wafts, tobacco and wild sage in the background plus a hint of pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, it is packed with expressive red and black fruits and is velvety and refreshing, finishing long.

93Wine Spectator

...plum and cassis notes are pure and fresh, carried by a polished structure, while aromatic black tea, violet, bergamot and alder elements hang in the background.

93+ Vinous / IWC

Cedar, licorice, dried herbs, menthol and scorched earth notes... This is a wine of great personality and character.

92Wine Enthusiast

...fruit-driven wine, packed with a strong black-currant character and bright acidity...tannins are light...more about freshness and attractive fruit.

91Jeb Dunnuck

...ripe, fleshy wine, with lots of ripe blackberry and black raspberry notes... Nicely textured and medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has ripe tannins and a great finish.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Very succulent and seductive on the nose, all blue fruit and polished sweet spices. The palate follows – it is seamless and suave, perhaps a little warm and spicy but very moreish.

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.
