Margaux

'The style of 2020 is therefore less like the concentrated wine of 2018 and resembles more the balanced and unctuous style of the 2019 vintage, but with greater intensity. The 2029/2020 pair reminds us of the 2009/2010 pair... nothing was able to prevent 2020 from being a great vintage. Combined with 2018 and 2019, this is perhaps the first trio of exceptional vintages in our history. Time will tell...' Philippe Bascoules, General Manager, Château Margaux.

Fruit expression certainly more clear following the family's decision to ferment in concrete and then age 30% in amphorae, with only 30% getting the full New Oak treatment. Nicely ripe but no heaviness this is loaded with charm and plush florality. Red and dark berries, warm from the sunshine. Good flow, good feel and density too - but this is not overly complicated. A charming sweet vein at its core runs right to the end, This seems almost ready to drink, but in fact there's enough stuffing to see it lasting well for 10 to 15 years - a very joyful glass, there is good volume too. Merlot 42%, Cabernet Sauvignon 46% and Petit Verdot 12%.L&S (May 2021)

Intense aroma of cassis and damson and although the notes of charry oak are evident, they blend in well with the fruit. This smells ripe and fragrant but not overly sweet, quite spicy. On the palate, the fruit is not quite as intense, the sinewy tannins and the oak dominating at the moment, leaving a dry, slightly charry aftertaste. A little bit severe.

A little sweeter-smelling than some but also dark and savoury, with subtle oak spice and char. Even a light floral note entwined with all that dark fruit. The oak is a little more obvious on the palate, as much in the smooth but thick tannins as in the flavour. Full in the mouth but nicely dry and fresh on the finish.
