Limpid ruby. A profound nose: very pure cassis and blackberry; blond-tobacco, autumnal-leaf, with a top note of alpine flower. It is the harmony, breed and distinction of the fruit that stands out with this bottle: a yardstick example of Margaux velvet. Classically structured. Refined tannins. Fine grip. Complete, as complete as young wine can be. Still many stories to tell. Now – 2030; we are thinking ideally 2018 – 2025 if you are looking for the best time to open one bottle.
