This wine manages to combine some of the delicacy and elegance of Margaux with the richness of 2003. Under the direction of Claire Villars (also of Château Ferrière classed growth), there is a confidence in this estate and its vineyards which lie adjacent to Château Margaux. Great acidity and black fruits finish the ensemble.
