Aromas of blackberry and lightly toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a rich, fruity aftertaste of plum, berry and vanilla. All there. Solid wine. Second wine of Margaux. Best after 2011. 14,165 cases made. —James Suckling
Reduced aromas overall, this is unevolved and angular now. It's rich and intense, with bracing acidity that leaves a tart impression. Be patient, this is a baby that needs plenty of time. Best from 2008 through 2025. 2,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
Plenty of blackberry and floral aromas with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, chewy and rich with round tannins and a long finish. Very tight. Lovely silky texture. Best after 2009. 6,300 cases made. —James Suckling
