Description/ Tasting NotesAlluringly aromatic, with big, sweet nose of new saddle leather, toasty oak, and weedy black cherry and cassis fruit. Medium-bodied wine with relatively elevated tannins, outstanding concentration and purity with core of steeped red currant, dried currant and black tea. The charcoal note, with lovely twinge of old-school character holding the finish.

Region Info/ Origin
The Margaux appellation encompasses the village of Margaux and the neighbouring villages of Arsac, Labarde, Soussans and Cantenac. Being the most southerly of the Médoc's appellations, it has the thinnest soil in the region with the highest proportion of gravel that allows the soil to drain very well. The wine from this area are very susceptible to weather effects during the growing season. Encountering all seasons with adequate irrigation, relatively good rainfall and good amount of sunlight, the crop yields a bountiful harvest year-on-year. The winery takes pride and value that captures the essence that reflects their unique brand.
