An intense Margaux with a superb expressive nose of red cherries and blackberries. On the palate, it is a fruity and complex red with supple tannins and a really long toasted finish. There is something feminine in this bottle, coming from its beautiful style. A typical and affordable Margaux that we just loved it at first sip!

What experts say  
  
87/100 "Margaux fragrance. Fine boned. Soft, seductive fruit. Harmonious. Drink 2015-2020."
  
  16.5+/20 "Convincing on the nose: bold black fruits with a delightful herbal element. Just a bit of spicy oak. Refreshing acid with very finely milled tannin. Fragrant and elegant. Justifiably Margaux, and justifiably cru bourgeois. (RH)"
