Fragrant blackberries married to moderate vanilla oak on the nose. Then cue an elegant, moderately tannic palate with some real sophistication. What a seductive wine. I love the long clean, dry and mineral finish that...

Decanter, November 2017

Another wine that shows the quality of the 2015s in Margaux, an easy rider that takes its time, with low-hanging dark fruits that are broadly brushed, giving a sense of enjoyment, with power behind. 50% new oak.

Brambly, juicy and energetic, with anise, plum cake and blackberry compote notes inlaid with brambly tannins. A light black tea streak adds nuance on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2032. 12,500 cases made. — JM
