Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Long vinification, both in terms of fermentation and maceration, produced oplulent, round Merlot in subtle harmony with the Cabernet which brings structure, freshness and well-defined aromas. The balance that was achieved promises a great future for this unique vintage.
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
"Blueberries, minerals, flowers and sandalwood on the nose. Full body, with chewy tannins and fresh fruit and citrus aftertaste. Beautiful polish to the wine. Best in 2018. "
"The soft, sexy 2009 exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, black currants, smoke and forest floor. Opulent and round with an attractive viscosity as well as outstanding purity, depth and length, it should drink well for two decades. While not one of the longest lived wines of the vintage, it is among the most precocious, flattering and charming at present."
The Wine Advocate
"Offers a core of blackberry and roasted plum in reserve, while slightly taut singed cedar, vanilla bean and espresso notes lead the way for now. Yet this leans on the toast rather than purity, with a cocoa note framing the finish. Should hang well enough in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2021. 11,250 cases made. "
"Purple red. Aromas of red berry fruit cocktail lifted by spices and flowers. Ripe acidity gives the wine's red fruit flavors good lift. Finishes clean and persistent, with suave, palate-dusting tannins and lingering berry and mineral qualities. Subtly complex and lively wine.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points
International Wine Cellar
"This is a delicate wine with a very Margaux feel. The delicious red berry fruits and light layers of tannin are in balance, suggesting a wine that will age relatively quickly, and is already drinkable now."

As in other Medoc appellations, Cabernet Sauvignon leads the...Read More About Margaux
