Plenty of sweet tobacco with plum and berry character that follows through to a full body, with super polished tannins. Silky and stylish. Lovely chocolate, toasted oak and coffee too. Gorgeous balance. Best in 2016.

A seductive opulent textured Margaux with notes of licorice black fruits asphalt pen ink and truffle this is one of the finest du Tertres ever made. It has a hedonistic quality to it but at the same time there is great class precision and freshness to this full-bodied concentrated but very supple-textured wine. Drink it over the next 20+ years.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2012
Quite perfumy at first with lilac damson plum and singed bay leaf notes up front followed by darker yet still caressing steeped black cherry worn leather and espresso notes on the back end. Best from 2013 through 2023. -JM

Cassis red plum tobacco leaf minerals and spices on the nose lifted by a floral topnote. Silky suave and elegantly styled; not a particularly opulent wine but nicely polished and balanced and already offering a lovely perfumed character. Finishes firmly tannic spicy and long with harmonious acidity contributing to the impression of class. A terrific vintage for this property.

Super dark purple core with a medium violet rim. This is truly classic "Bordeaux" on the nose with aromas of red currant cassis and blackberry. Less ripe and not as modern in style than many of the other Margaux wines being presented the power of the vintage still shows through. It will be less approachable in its youth but I would not hesitate to age this wine for 10-20 years.
