This is a tiny property, with just 11 hectares (26 acres) in production, producing one of Margaux’s finest Crus Bourgeois. The average age of the vines is now 32 years, so, as wine-maker Gérard Fenouillet told us: “their deep roots were able to withstand stress from the dry weather. We were able to pick grapes which had retained their freshness. This is particularly important for the Merlots, which were crisp and crunchy.” The 2016 assemblage is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot with 6% Petit Verdot. This is strikingly deep purple-ruby, with rich, fully ripened, blackberry aromas. Palate shows generous fruit concentration, combining the inimitable finesse of Margaux with vivacious freshness and a gentle, well-rounded finish. This wine has sumptuous texture and lovely length (for drinking 2019-2030+).
