A classy, concentrated Margaux, this wine shows elegant, ripe cassis flavors with notes of cedar, tobacco and restrained vanillin oak set in a silky, highly extracted texture underscored by refined, focused tannins.
Wine Advocate 96 points - An inky/purple color is followed by notes of Asian plum sauce, forest floor, creme de cassis, black raspberries and a floral component that is unusual for a Margaux. A wine of exceptional intensity and purity with a full-bodied, sumptuous texture, lots of fresh vibrancy and excellent definition, this beautiful 2009 exhibits high but sweet tannin. It is more sexy than the 2005 was at a similar age, although their level of extract and concentration is relatively equal. Something about the 2009 reminds me of a Margaux version of St.-Julien’s Leoville Poyferre ... if that makes any sense. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040. (Feb 2012)
