A splendid nose with subtle complexity. Very refined fruit with mineral and floral touches and perfectly integrated oak.
Above all, aromatic complexity and rare elegance with a deep, richness in the mouth and beautiful ripe, delicate tannins. Tight but gentle with a very fine acidity and immensely long finish.
05 + 10 = 15. In 2015, nature treated us with a cross between 2 other exceptional vintages. Climatic conditions were ideal throughout the entire cycle in the vineyard, but particularly favourable in the Margaux appellation during the ripening period.
Picking conditions were thus excellent, allowing us to harvest each of the varietals in every plot at their optimal ripeness. The wines have great aromatic richness and splendid tannic structure. They have everything necessary to allow them to age well for many years to come.
70% Cabernet Sauvignon
3% Cabernet Franc
Barrel ageing: 18 months in 70% new French oak
Ageing potential: 10-20 years and beyond. At its best from 2022 onwards.
Rich, fruity and with great potential, this ripe wine is also dense with firm tannins. Its juicy fruits are a part of a package with the concentrated tannins and smoky wood flavors that allow for long aging. This is an impressive wine from one of the Margaux properties owned by the Lurton family. Drink from 2025. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 96 Points
Quite impressive ripe dark plums and blackberries with sweet, earthy depth and cedary background oak on the nose. The palate has smooth, slick tannins that carry rich dark fruit long and fresh. This has terrific energy and depth. Really vibrant. Incredible length. Drink from 2022. - James Suckling 94 Points
Silky and refined, with seductive crushed plum and raspberry fruit that glides along, perfectly melded with singed alder and mesquite notes along with black tea and warm licorice details. A violet element hangs in the background, adding to the elegance. Best from 2020 through 2035. 12,500 cases made. - Wine Spectator Magazine 93 Points
