TASTING NOTES

"Intensity, finesse, and tannic structure worthy of the cru, even if the sample was a bit too warm to give a good sense of its aromatic potential. Without doubt the highest proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the Médoc." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"A purity of fruit marks this Margaux with lots of currant and berry character. Full body, bright acidity and round tannins. It’s a larger and more expanded style of Margaux. A wine with a heart and body. Strong." JamesSuckling.com

"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." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Sweet rich start and then very fresh. Seems a little bit marked by oak at the moment. Sinewy. Hint of chocolate - just like Palmer! Slightly drying tannins. Sandpaper on the end. 13%." JancisRobinson.com
