Margaux, Third Growth
|Units||Size||Case size||GBP Price:||Quantities||Buy|
Elegant notes of Chinese black tea, black currants, licorice, and flowers emerge from this excellent, medium-bodied, supple-textured Margaux. As the wine sat in the glass, a bit of raspy tannins started to push through, which lowered my score a point or two. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate Maturity: Not Stated 01 May 2008
This exhibits plum, milk chocolate and light toasty oak aromas. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins, delicious fruit and a medium finish. Very balanced and nicely textured. Enjoy the softness. Best after 2013. 8,335 cases made.
James Suckling, Wine Spectator 31 March 2010
Balanced and fruity, with strawberry, tobacco and light chocolate character. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicate finish.
Score: 86 - 89
James Suckling, Wine Spectator 31 March 2008
(12.4% alcohol after a bit of osmose inverse Good dark red-ruby. Pure aromas of dark berries and licorice, with a peppery lift. Sweet and spicy, with very good fruit intensity and a chocolatey impression of ripeness. Finishes with good fruity persistence but not the verve or grip of the best years.
Score: 88 - 90
Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar 01 May 2008
Rather dull, greyish crimson with light oak on the nose. Quite refreshing with a certain malted milk easy impact. Then pretty green on the finish. Sandpaper tannins. Some decent length. Good life to it.
Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2012-2016 10 April 2008
Fine purple-red, quite lifted blackcurrant fruit, natural and pure expression, good depth of fruit on palate, not showing much yet, but has good potential. Drink 2013-20.
Decanter Maturity: 2013-2020 08 April 2008
Again, this has a distinctive nose, something quite briny suffusing the black, vanillary fruit. Touches of black cherries and briary. The palate is better, good fruit concentration and firm tannins, a little oaky towards the very dry finish. Quite masculine for a Margaux. Rather foursquare and conservative.
Score: 85 - 87
