"A sleeper of the vintage, this is a pure sexpot of a Margaux with lots of spring flower, jammy black cherry, black currant, graphite and smoky characteristics. With loads of fruit, a round, opulent texture and outstanding purity, this up-front, evolved, classic, medium to full-bodied Margaux can be enjoyed now and over the next 10-15 years." -Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (90 Points)

90 pts Vinous

Medium red-ruby. Black cherry, dark chocolate and a leathery nuance on the nose. Sweet, dense and fine-grained, with a fairly plush texture to its nicely concentrated black fruit and licorice flavors. At once pliant and firm, finishing with toothdusting tannins and very good persistence.
