The essence of Margaux in a bottle
Expressive on the nose with bright aromas of sweet dark berries, lilac and violets. Full-bodied with a juicy freshness highlighting the concentrated layers of sweet red plums, wild blueberries and black cherry preserve. A touch of oak spices in the form of cardamom and nutmeg compliment the crushed-stone minerality on a mouth-watering finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
"Crushed velvet that turns to silk" James Suckling, Jan '22 2019 was good to Margaux and look no further than this Grand Vin as proof. An historic 3rd growth estate, the producers here put their neck on the line by stating that this is a signature vintage for them in terms of structure, elegance and aromatics. One key to the quality lies in the vineyard. Vines are hand-harvested individually rather than by parcel, an attention to detail that few can match. If you ever wondered just how good 3rd growth wines can be, then look no further.
