Tasting notes

Dense, oaky nose, a touch stewed. Plump, fleshy, rounded and concentrated, a bit burly for Margaux but has generous fruit and enough acidity to keep it lively. Quite good length.

Sweet ripe pure fruit on the nose and palate, earthy and gravelly, light fruit and fresh acidity, solid tannins and dense bramble fruit.

Rich and warm summer fruits nose, very attractive rich fruits on the palate, nice fresh acidity to lift them up and good length, still a bit raw, but has natural vigour and middle fruit to show well.
