A stunning modern cellar has been constructed at this property owned by Marie-Laure Lurton. The wine has some modern polish and richness, but it is still very Margaux, showing elegant fruit to go with the ripe tannins and black jelly flavors. This is an attractively restrained wine, which should age well over the next 5–7 years.
