Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) This is a very expansive, expressive nose that fans out with aeration. Quite minerally and stony, this has a certain “coolness” about it, despite its fragrance. Then other notes emerge: cedar, sous-bois, blackberry and hedgerow. Masculine in style. The palate is still tight and tannic with a slight coarseness

    Good balance overall. Lots of jam flavor now but it will only get better with time.

    Very much a proponent of 2005 ripeness and showing all of the succulent fruit that marks the best performers of the year, this wonderfully rich and aromatic offering ups the ante in terms of fruity volume and scale, yet it is never less than firmly structured and wholly Margaux in manner. Its fine-grained tannins ensure a decade or two of improvement, but it shows so much early appeal that it will tempt drinking far sooner.
