Matured entirely in new oak, it is in possession of an almost pixelated bouquet with beguiling blackberry, bilberry and crushed limestone aromas. I find this less austere than some vintages of Brane-Cantenac at this prenatal stage. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with filigree tannins, very harmonious, not a deep or powerful Margaux, yet very delineated. There is that signature touch of greenness that I often find on Brane-Cantenac on the finish, though I have learned through experience that this is assimilated with bottle age, so have a cool cellar handy. Excellent. Drinking range: 2028 - 2060 Rating: 94-96 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jun 2020)

Spellbindingly fragrant on theWow. As we tasted this it was hard to find the words. Everything is perfectly in place and mesmerisingly spot on. There is so much wonder here. Yet nothing too obvious. Spellbindingly fragrant on the nose with firm, purple and blue berries, gorgeous cedar notes and a refined floral aspect too. Not shouty - just intense and neatly measured. Exuding class and confidence. This follows to the palate. Again its all here - delicious dark and rather grand cassis crunch and softer fleshed plum too. There's detailed slate and crushed stone and then a wonderful line of sweeter charm that runs delicately right through the core. Dense and concentrated for sure yet this is focused and poised too. A very gentle build to the deep power - and yet softly charming. Perhaps hard to fathom at this stage, to pin down as there is so much going on, but all in perfect harmony. The total class here is clear, this is a very fine Margaux indeed. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. L&S(Jun 2020)

It develops impressive cohesion with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied and what you first notice is the finesse of the tannins. This has a satin-like texture and very well judged acidity. The new oak does poke out a little on the finish - if that can be assimilated during its barrel maturation, this could turn into a very serious Margaux.

A new dawn for Giscours? There is a weight and a brood here compared to stablemate, du Tertre, and the tannins are firmer a touch more hairy - but the juice is fragrant intense dark fruits and nicely spiced. Good feel and chew - but smooth too. Attractive Giscours in 2019.

Lots has changed here this year. Lorenzo Pesquini bought in - working with Thomas Duclot THey have worked hard on the Merlot - bringing them in sooner and improving the quality of this element a lot. Much juicier and fresher. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon & 35% Merlot.

Usually one of the most hefty of all Margaux properties. Have done a really close study of the effects of Hydric stress on the vines. so have changed their harvesting - much more precise now - passing through each vineyard 3 or 4 times (Sauternes style says Alexander) Less press wine went in to this 1st wine - just 2-3 percent. As a vintage this is close to 2016 - but because of the work they have been doing this is more precise than anything before Alexander Von Beek stressed during our tasting together. It certainly is successful.

Grippy and good structure, but also fabulous fruit. Dark and firm, yet not baked - and there is a gorgeous freshness and lift of juicy acidity. Lots of slate and lead - and crunchy leaf too, some mint or eucalyptus as well. Nice spice and classic cedar wood waft. This is intense, quite concentrated for now and yet ripe in the middle.

After a hot and dry summer which lasted until the weekend of the 20th of September, and despite two heatwaves, in June and July, the Margaux appellation has produced a particularly high-quality vintage.

Harvested between the 25th of September and the 16th of October 2019, hand picked in crates, selective sorting in the vines and in the cellar. Alcoholic fermentation: between 8 to 12 days, with naturally occurring yeasts. Aged in 70% new wood. Estimated Alcoholic Volume: 13,9%

A delicate Malescot which makes it a gourmet wine despite a tight tannic structure. We will have to wait for this vintage to fully express the freshness of its cabernets supported by a body full of merlots. As for the cabernet-francs and petit-verdots, they are like salt and pepper which densify and reveal this wine.

In 2019, the Merlots enjoyed dry and sunny weather conditions up to the very end, giving rise to wines full of power, exuberance and flesh. The Cabernets, harvested after the scattered rains of late September, would develop a certain coolness and reserve, to produce wines of rare distinction.It is this uncommon marriage that has placed our two wines, Château Palmer and Alter Ego, in the rarefied circle of exceptional vintages. (Thosmas Duroux)

From the first aromas escaping the glass we are captivated: notes of black fruits and the most precious spices mingle in a bouquet of extraordinary complexity that will continue to reveal itself over time. The texture lives up to the Cru’s reputation: an endless carnal sensation pervades our palate, revealing tannins of subtle finesse yet remarkable depth. This Château Palmer, anchored very deeply in its terroir, is built to defy time.

Following to the palate where sweet damson and black raspberry flesh intertwine on a soft bed of round velvety tannins. This has good drive and a caressing feel. The fruit here clearly got nicely ripe - but this stops short of being rich. Just a real pleasure to taste and neatly layered. It finishes with a good line of juiciness that asks you back for more.

Ben Sichel has been transforming Angludet in recent years and they now operate completely Bio-dynamically in the vineyards. He's changed the élevage considerably too. The 2019 seems to be a great new marker for this Margaux stalwart. Recommended for the cellar.
