This final blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and the rest split between Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot tips the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol. Sweet black currant fruit intermixed with cedar wood, licorice and some spice give this wine beautiful aromatics, as one should expect from a Margaux, medium to full body, silky tannins and a long finish. This is definitely a sleeper of the vintage and still underpriced for a classified growth from Margaux. Drink it over the next 15 years.
By no means do I say this lightly: this is the best effort I have ever tasted from this 37-acre vineyard in Margaux. Apparently, bringing in Michel Rolland has led to dramatic improvements here.
Drink Date: 2013 - 2028
