"This is one of my favourite (and better value) châteaux from the famous Margaux commune.

"When this property hired Stéphane Derenoncourt, the famous and hugely-respected wine consultant, this estate's quality went to a whole new level.

"The other Margaux estates making wine of this quality all cost more."

Robert Parker

96 Some very ripe dark-plum aromas with a wealth of sweet spices and earthy notes. The palate has an impressively rich, suave and smooth core of black fruit with a powerful palate that delivers concentrated and intense structure. This is superb Margaux.
