TASTING NOTES

A consistently good wine, with lovely overt, fruity scent and excellent depth on the palate.

Margaux is a large zone, covering five villages, and its soils are very varied. Where once only the top châteaux fulfilled their potential, there is an energetic new generation going to great lengths to get the most out of their enviable terroir.
