Using lower yields and a stricter selection of grapes, the quality of this Margaux is on the rise.
Aged for 18 months in 60% new oak barrels this is a a complex and generous wine with aromas of licorice, graphite, charcoal and leather. Full-bodied and opulent with a silky texture.
...The wine has a beautiful blueberry-scented nose with hints of acacia flowers, licorice, graphite and some subtle charcoal and background oak. Clearly a modern style of Margaux, it is pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent, and the high glycerin and silky texture of 2009 are brilliantly displayed in this wine. Drink it over the next 15+ years, although it is certainly capable of lasting well past two decades...- 94 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
