Great example of a classic Bordeaux. Lovely notes of fresh tobacco, leather, spice. Nice!

A balanced and relatively ripe Margaux for the 2012 vintage. This blend of 55% CS, 27% merlot and 11% Petit Verdot, was aged for 16 month, it has a deep dark color. An elegant and sexy nose, with notes of red current, cherries, dry flowers, tobacco and sweet spice, medium to full body, balanced and elegant rather than robust, fresh acidity, and a smooth finish. My score 88, drink 2017-2031

Beautiful balance and elegance in a challenging vintage. Will easily keep 10 years.

Черные ягоды, мак, пряности, кардамон, мускатный орех. Очень интенсивно во вкусе, хорошая структура. 16.5/20 (92/100)

Serious upgrade since last time. Got it in a good spot. Fruit and tannin nicely melted together. Beautiful nose. Only the finish should be a bit longer

Promising nose but in the mouth all over the place in terms of pepper, bitterness and oak. I expected more of a wine in this price range...

Delicious Margaux .... full of earth notes, compost, potting soil on the nose, with rich, dark, velvety fruit, and silky tannins on the finish. Bottle was far more enjoyable knowing that we recently visited the Château on our honeymoon in France.

Great daily drinker, beautiful fruit and nice lengths, medium bodied with lasting tannins.
