The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
Very full plum the nose is bright and clean, perfumed, touch grille and balsamic, this is gentle and well endowed, no over extraction. The palate is generous but not clumsy, bitter chocolate finish. Deft touch. This is one of the best Margaux. 92-94/100 - 2025-2040. Nickolls & Perks - W J Gardener. Decanter 17.25/20
