A huge nose of blackcurrants, smoked earth, tobacco, lead pencil, and spice give way to a concentrated, blockbuster styled Margaux that has thrilling depth of fruit, masses of ripe tannins, and great length and finesse on the finish. This brilliant wine is just now seemingly on the edge of its drink window and offers immense pleasure, yet it has another 30-40 years of life ahead of it. Along with the 2015 and 2016, it’s the greatest wine made at this estate in the past two decades. collapse

Full-bodied, concentrated and jam-packed with savory/earthy fruit, it has a rock-solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing with great length and expression. The blend this year is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, harvested between September 23rd and October 19th, at an average yield of 37 hectoliters per hectare. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, 60% new. The alcohol is 14%, and the pH is 3.52. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse

What a beautiful wine! It has power and elegance, an incredible dense and feathered texture with silky tannins, and the confidence to simply settle into itself. As the glass unfurls you get liquorice, heavy smoke notes, pencil lead and cassis. It's still young and has decades ahead of it. Harvest ran from 23 September to 12 October, giving a yield of 37hl/ha. 60% new oak. 3.52pH. collapse

It has a heavenly bouquet with wild strawberry, subtle floral notes and great precision. The palate is nothing powerful, less flamboyant than the 2010 Palmer, yet endowed with incredible precision and length. All you could really want from a Margaux. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. -- Neal Martin collapse

Tasted three times it has a very "strict" tightly wound bouquet. It takes time to open up with faint notes of shellfish inflecting the very fresh blackberry and graphite fruit. The palate is very well balanced with saturated tannins vibrant acidity that Cabernet Sauvignon (yet again) imparting graphite and mineralité into the wine. Quite linear towards the finish long in the mouth. A great wine...though I suspect that the 2009 may turn out to be the pick of the two. collapse

The well-integrated structure makes this seem almost accessible now, but the ample length and a smoldering tobacco note make a case for cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030. 9,666 cases made. –JM collapse
