It's not the most polished Médoc of the vintage, but there's plenty of concentration and energy driving the long firm finish. Give it more time. Try after 2021. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019)

It's such a classic Margaux, remarkable for its elegance and purity yet still showing classic 2009 depth, richness, and sexiness. Giving up loads of crème de cassis, green tobacco, cedar pencil, chocolate, and hints of incense, it's flawlessly balanced and has sweet tannin, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's drinking at point today yet has another two decades of longevity ahead of it. It's a beautiful wine.

On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, silky, fresh, rich and supple. The berries and floral character with their sweetness and lift feels as good as it tastes. With 2 hours in the decanter, this is a stunner, else wait about 5 more years and drink over the next 2 decades with ease.

A rich and opulent wine, very ripe, packed with luscious blackberry and damson fruit as well as sweet tannins. It is a fruit salad of fruit flavors given structure by a core of dryness.

It is a fruit salad of fruit flavors given structure by a core of dryness. Already a gorgeous wine, but one that will also age. ROGER VOSS

This is a truly lovely wine which I also experienced recently at the 10 years on tasting in London, where it was highly seductive - and it's even better here. There are some notes of evolution here, with tobacco, soft leather, brambly red fruits and touches of exotic spice. You could drink it now - it's less aloof than the 2010 - but it will age, and there's no question that this will be a thrilling, delicious, gulpable wine. Harvest ran from 22 September to 11 October, with a yield of 41hl/ha. 3.69pH.

Full-bodied, rich, plush and decadent, it completely coats the palate with densely packed preserved black berries layers, finishing very long and spicy.- LPB

Wine Spectator, March 2012
A very toasty style, with lots of caressing plum sauce, melted licorice and warm fig flavors splayed out over polished, rounded structure. Picks up some grip and tar on the finish, but stays clearly on the modern side...   A very toasty style, with lots of caressing plum sauce, melted licorice and warm fig flavors splayed out over polished, rounded structure. Picks up some grip and tar on the finish, but stays clearly on the modern side, with its noticeable reliance on toast. Best from 2014 through 2026. 10,000 cases made. — JM
