Ripe and generous with lovely freshness. This is a very elegant Haut-Médoc that has excellent balance and a long, almost silky finish that makes it easy to enjoy right now. Drink or hold.
The 2016 Lamarque has a very refined bouquet with gorgeous aromas of blackberry, cedar and pressed flowers that unfurls beautifully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite robust and firm tannin, but the fruit is so pure that you barely notice its arching structure. It delivers a wonderful, persistent pencil box tinged finish and a long, graphite aftertaste. This is a superb contribution to the vintage, just classic, damn delicious Left Bank Bordeaux. (NM)
Based around the medieval castle at the port of Lamarque on the Gironde estuary, this estate is performing well, crafting structured yet elegant wines. This wine epitomizes that style, with firm tannins that never lose sight of the fruit or the acidity. For aging, the wine will be ready after 2025.
