Tasting Notes

Very pure CS, black, cassis, kirsch. Very concentrated but without being forced. Overlay of lavender and minerals. Tannins wonderfully fine. A great classic, fresh, balanced and the thoroughbred. Grace, purity and elegance but wonderful drive and follow-through, touch of mint on the finish. Great wine. 19 points

Reviews & Scores

(90% cabernet sauvignon, 4% each merlot and petit verdot, and 2% cabernet franc) Medium bright ruby. Compellingly perfumed nose of boysenberry, cassis, graphite, licorice and violet. Suave on entry, then imploded in the middle and extremely slow to show itself. Very pure, understated black fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors are like an essence of cabernet. Savory rather than particularly sweet: there's nothing easy or obvious about this wine today. A dry and classic style; the tannins are tight for a young Margaux but not hard, and the finishing flavors are vibrant and perfumed. The pH of 3.68 is on the low side for a wine from this chateau. 92-95 points

Darker fruits on the nose and palate than the Estate Cabernet, the ESP has a richer palate spectrum with more poise and power. Intense black fruits, coffee, black olives and more spice with excellent concentration of fruit on the finish. A wonderfully impressive...

The Shiraz grapes for this ESP 'reserve cuvee' were sourced mainly from vines planted on the Estate during the 1930s. Rich, dark fruit scents with a mix of spice leap from the glass. Powerful and rich black fruit flavours on the palate with excellent depth of fruit, layered complexity with notes of spice, pepper and licorice. The overall balance is...
