One of the more modern-styled wines from the appellation of Margaux, always with a prominent overlay of toasty new oak, espresso roast, and sweet black fruits, this wine seems more restrained and has backed off its concentration with the 2006. It is a mid-weight, elegant wine with notes of licorice and black currants as well as a hint of tobacco leaf. The wine is concentrated and obviously outstanding, but the moderate tannins in the finish suggest cellaring it for 2-3 years and drinking it over the following 15-20. (RP)
Deep red-ruby. Wild nose combines currant, blackberry, coffee, mocha, cedary oak, and a light weedy quality. Lush and rather exotic in the mouth, with the liqueur-like quality carrying through. Not at all overly sweet but a distinctly supple and fine-grained style of 2006. Finishes with very ripe tannins and lovely persistence. Accessible already but with the stuffing to age. (ST)
Displays blackberry and blueberry aromas, with a hint of cappuccino. Full and silky, with a lovely texture of ripe tannins and an aftertaste of dark chocolate, berry and light vanilla. This is a solid estate making solid wines now.
Very dark. Thick and meat extract on the nose. Very firm and positive and confident. Juicy and appetising, with a beginning, middle and end. Return to form for this château? (17.5/20 points)
