It offers everything you desire from this First Growth. It is blessed with breathtaking delineation and freshness on the nose, understated at first and then blossoming with mineral-infused black fruit, hints of blueberry, crushed stone and violet. The palate is perfectly balanced with filigree tannin, perfect acidity, a wine where everything seems to be in its right place. Blackberry, crushed stone at the front of the mouth, just a touch of spice towards the finish that shows supreme control. This is a Margaux that seems to light up the senses. It was outstanding in its youth...something that has not changed one bit over the intervening two decades. WA 100

Tasting note


This 1996 vintage from the renowned Margaux appellation is a testament to the classic and savory profile of Bordeaux's finest. With an average critic score soaring high, this wine exudes a medium to deep ruby-red hue, inviting you to discover its rich and intense aromas of cedar, tobacco, and ripe red fruits. The palate is graced with smooth, velvety tannins and an opulent, rounded fruit profile, all beautifully balanced by a refreshing acidity. The structure is plentiful, leading to a concentrated core of fruit and a long, harmonious finish marked by cedary tannins. This superb example of Margaux is a dream to taste now, yet promises immense aging potential.
