"Deep in colour, there remains a slight broodiness on the nose, although it loses its inhibitions and develops potent blackberry, strawberry and mint aromas, perhaps just a smudge of camphor. It is unashamedly rich on the entry: intense and vibrant with layers of black cherry and cassis fruit pierced by a fine line of acidity. This millennial tightens everything up towards the, finish whereupon it reverts to something much more classic in style, long and tensile. It does not quite occupy the same class as the 2005 or the imperial 2010, but it certainly has long-term potential. My advice? Give it another 4-5 years in the cellar." Tasted May 2015 Neal Martin 94/100
A magnificent wine has been made, the epitome of Margaux, with fragrant fruit and soft supple texture. Not at all massive on initial tasting, it builds in the mouth and finishes with sweet, succulent symphony of flavours.
