2014 Cru Bourgeois Supérieur Margaux
|Grapes||Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Merlot|
|Classification||Cru Bourgeois Supérieur|
56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. Very satisfying Margaux at this level. Really soft fruit - but plenty of it in the nicely concentrated middle - framed with a good level of dusty mineral texture and grip to keep it well balanced and flowing nicely. This is a great buy for drinkers - one to pop in the cellar (in magnums?) and enjoy in the relatively short term. Rating: 90 L&S (Mar 2015)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Some freshness, sweetness and inkiness. Correct without being stunning. Drinking range: 2023 - 2033 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)
Wonderful depth of fruit and density to this young wine with fine tannins and juicy fruit. Full body and a long finish. Rating: 90-91 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(May 2015)
Dark blackish crimson. Heady, sweet, almost black-cherry aromas which are very unusual in 2014. At first I’m more aware of acidity than tannin on the palate. It’s a strange mixture of almost forced sweetness plus a little sourness on the finish. Not beautifully integrated or balanced - yet. But there is energy and will here.

One of a number of very appealing wines from the Margaux commune in 2014, this is a forward, easy-drinking style that's elegant, refreshing and mineral, with notes of liquorice and black cherry, well handled new oak and a smooth, polished finish.
