  2016 Bordeaux Futures from Château Margaux - Released Today
Case Price
Château Margaux (6 bottle case)
97-100 AG
"The 2016 Margaux is magnificent in the best tradition of the Château Margaux style, which always speaks more to finesse than power. Above all else, the 2016 is a wine of superb persistence, understated power and total refinement. There is wonderful depth and intensity to the ripe red and purplish-hued fruits, accompanied by mint, rose petal and sweet spice overtones that develop in the glass. The 2016 finishes with great aromatic lift and freshness. It has been absolutely compelling on the two occasions I have tasted it so far." (97-100 points) Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, April 2017

Château Léoville Barton
95-96 JS
"Tight and chewy with a solid tannin structure and depth of fruit. Full body and lots of depth and texture. A Barton with lots happening already. Develops beautifully on the palate. Should be better than the 2015." (95-96 points) JamesSuckling.com, April 4, 2017
Château Brane-Cantenac
96-98 WA
"...beautifully defined, very detailed bouquet with mineral-rich black fruit laced with cedar and graphite notes, living up to its nom de plume as the "Pauillac of Margaux." The palate is simply the best that I have ever tasted at the estate, without question. This has presence, but also weightlessness, filigree tannin and perfectly pitched acidity, with real intensity and drive. The tension here is outstanding and the persistence is incredibly long..." (96-98 points) Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230, April 2017
Le Baron de Brane [2nd wine of Ch. Brane-Cantenac]
92-93 JS
"Love the fruit on the center palate here with its brightness and vivid acidity. Citrus undertones and a fresh finish. Well done here, and it’s a second wine!" (92-93 points) JamesSuckling.com, April 4, 2017
