Winemaker's Notes

"This is another Margaux estate that has become re-energized and is now producing wines consistent with its 150-year-old classification. The dark plum/ruby-colored 2003's stunning aromatics include flamboyant notes of plums, cedar, burning embers, and dried herbs. Full-bodied, elegant, layered, and rich, yet filled with finesse and delicacy, it is surprisingly soft, round, and gentle. While appealing at present, it will evolve for 15-18 years."

"Aromas of blackberry, cherry and light toasted oak. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium finish. Pretty wine. Balanced and refined. Best after 2011."
