"A big, smoky, tapenade, plum, black currant, and spring flower-scented nose is followed by a medium to full-bodied, textured, layered wine with sweet tannin, low acidity, and impressive concentration as well as depth. This is a gorgeous, hedonistic yet complex Margaux to drink now and over the next 12-14 years."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
"A solid red, with blackberry, plum and light cedar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing aftertaste. All together here. Best after 2008."
This wine is fantastic. This chateau is truly back on the rise. Drink the 2004 while you wait for the 2005 to age. Truly underappreciated vintage.
