This is the flagship wine of the family and it has all the characteristics of a great Margaux. The nose is explosive with a combination of fruits, spices and toast that continues on the palate. The structure is rich and powerful, yet very elegant. It then shows a persistent finish, calling for more. Very well made and ready to drink now, it will also age well. Margaux is one of the most sought-after appellations in Médoc and usually offers expensive wines. Such a quality Margaux at this price is a real steal!

|What experts say|
Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards "Lifted cassis and floral-leafy aromas. Still youthful palate, sweet, elegant and nicely silky. Fresh, easy-going concentration and a pleasing sense of harmony."
16.5+/20 "94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot. Good, powerful, rich, opulent nose. Very convincing. Delivers tasty ripe fruit on the palate too. Certainly modern. Seamless balance. Perhaps just a bit too ripe for traditionalists, but in terms of enjoyment, this hits the spot."
88/100 "The sleek currant, pomegranate and black cherry notes course along, framed by a lightly singed sandalwood hint and backed by an iron accent. Shows persistence on the finish."
