Third Growth. Troisieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855.
From a moated chateau in the southern Medoc, this classic Margaux has been making terrific wines since the late nineties. However, the 2013 is not one of them. Nevertheless, it is certainly very good. Soft, medium-bodied with no herbaceousness or astringent tannin, it is a superficial, but charming wine made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. It offers a slight floral note intermixed with notions of raspberries, black currants, licorice and background oak. This easygoing Margaux is best drunk during its first decade of life. – 87 Points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
