Wine SpectatorThis is fresh and engaging, with firm but lively singed alder and apple wood notes framing a core of plum, red currant and steeped black cherry fruit. Offers pepper and tobacco hints on the grippy finish. This will need a touch of cellaring to round into form. Best from 2015 through 2028.

Wine EnthusiastA wine that is smoky from the wood, while the tannins are firm and structured. It has a dark character, dominated by final new wood flavors.

Wine AdvocateThis final blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and the rest split between Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot tips the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol. Sweet black currant fruit intermixed with cedar wood, licorice and some spice give this wine beautiful aromatics, as one should expect from a Margaux, medium to full body, silky tannins and a long finish. This is definitely a sleeper of the vintage and still underpriced for a classified growth from Margaux. Drink it over the next 15 years.
