Critic Notes

Interesting aromas of blackberries, black truffle and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Try after 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Score: 91-/100James Suckling

Tasted at Vintex. This has a rich, opulent nose of black cherries, kirsch and smoke, well defined but perhaps just a little heady at the moment. The palate is full-bodied, grippy tannins, firm backbone with an pleasing austere, slightly peppery finish that reminds me more of a Saint Julien. Good potential. Tasted March 2010.

Score: 90-92/100Neal Martin

Blueberry and currant aromas follow through to a full body, with very pretty fruit and a chewy finish. A little overextracted. But juicy and yummy

Score: 89-92/100Wine Spectator

Dense red, fine fragrant Margaux fruit, well-expressed with elegance and natural vineyard depth, fine personality and all in balance. Drink 2014-20.

Score: 16.5-/20Decanter

Bright crimson. Mellow, quite evolved nose. Relatively soft and simple. Not that much density. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Its stately pavilion is ...

Assessing the blend: 2011 Chateau Margaux
Me: “Paul, are you sure that sample is Merlot, it tastes a lot like Cabernet?” Paul Pontallier: “Yes absolutely it’s a Merlot, amazing eh?” Me: “Paul, are you really sure this isn’t a Cabernet?” Paul Pontallier: “Hmmm, no, not any more. Let me check…” It had started as a simple question in late Nov 2011 when I was at Ch ...

1995: A Bordeaux Vintage Full of Character With Excellent Wines to be Found
A Bordeaux Vintage Filling Out Beautifully Although for a long time in the shadow of the almost uniformly excellent 1996s, the Bordeaux 1995 is full of gems. We’ve been lucky to have sampled several in recent months, from both sides of the Gironde, and the top wines are filling out beautifully with a fleshy richness that was perhaps missing ...
