From a family owned Estate, this has all of the classic notes of Margaux. It's elegant and pretty with high toned floral notes that dance over the top of the main body of dark cherries, spice and tobacco. And at stonkingly good value - what more could you ask for!
Drinking now, but benefits from decanting, as it draws out some of the wonderful depth of the wine. The nose transports you back a century or so. Mahogany and leather with supple cassis and pipe tobacco. Poised, classic and enticing. The palate is fine-grained, with that dark fruit and spice seamlessly integrated into that delightfully textured tannin structure. It all is delivered perfectly - perfume, elegance, purity finesse, restrained power and balance; all the hallmarks of fine Margaux. An entirely transporting experience.
