    Winemaker's Notes:

    From its first tastings, the wine proved extraordinarily successful thanks to its elegance and delicious softness. "Very rich, fruity, with vanilla, blackcurrent and licorice flavours. An intense purple robe combined with roundness. Very long on the palate." The delicate quality of the appellation is balanced by an impressive level of concentration and power.

    The winemaking process includes a long vatting period in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. 18 months in new, French oak barrels.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The opaque purple-hued 2005's excellent bouquet of licorice-infused blueberries interwoven with crushed rock, white flower, and cassis scents emanates gently but forcefully from this full-bodied Margaux. The wine is extremely pure and elegant, with sensational texture (a characteristic of so many ‘05 Margaux), a boatload of ripe tannin, and a 45-second finish. While there is tremendous power, depth, and fruit, it does not come across as too heavy or overbearing. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2027.

    The Wine Advocate

    This is dark, with intense aromas of crushed blackberry, currant, tar and mineral. Full-bodied, with a superrich palate of ripe berry, raspberry tart and vanilla. Soft and caressing, with loads of fruit. Best after 2012. 1,000 cases made
