Gorgeous aromas of berry currant and exotic spices especially cinnamon. Medium- to full-bodied with layers of silky tannins and ripe berry and raspberry on the palate. An outstanding Margaux... Wine Spectator.

Medium ruby. Cool floral aromas of red berries violet cocoa powder graphite and spicy oak along with a whiff of smoked meat. Juicy sharply delineated and austere; a classic adamantly dry claret with superb intensity and grip. This is beginning to close up unlike the 99. But really expands on the very long perfumed finish. Tannins are dusty but even. 92(+?) points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

This second wine of Château Margaux was introduced in 1908 and now represents 50% of the overall estate production. Generally selected from vats and barrels of a lesser caliber than the "Grand Vin," it is typically made from the younger vines.
