Opaque red. Dense cassis and liquorice nose, distinctly oaky, but not to excess. Very rich yet also shows limpidity, lifted and pure, delicious fruit with real intensity and flair thanks to excellent acidity. There’s irresistible energy here, and a long, graceful finish, with mocha notes and black fruits.

Stylish Margaux nose. Very floral. Well-defined, crisp fruit on the palate. Good weight of ripe fruit on the palate, sweet but not overpowering. Nice density and texture. Good finish with tannins well-managed and oak fairly well-integrated. Wood a bit prominent just now but should soften well with time.

Fine, fragrant Margaux nose, all elegance and femininity, plus underlying cassis Cabernet fruit. Lots of fruit, elegance of flavour with florality as well. Lovely harmony, a very attractive wine with a good future.
