Grapes: A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot from the excellent 2008 Margaux vintage.
James Sichel continues to make lovely wine here. Most attractive, sweet plummy fruit on the nose, ripe and round on the palate. Full bodied and firm finish will ensure the wine ages gracefully
"Deep purplish crimson. Fragrant, scented, complete - elderberries again. Very opulent but good freshness too and some very ripe tannins. Real zip on the finish. An admirably complete wine. Long. Perhaps a little classical than some but very well sculpted." 17/20 points, Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com, May 2009 [Drink 2014-2028]
Re-tasted in 2012 by Jancis:
"Dense and sweet and flattering." 16/20 points [Drink 2015-2022]
