Pretty aromas of tobacco, berry and cherry follow through to a medium-bodied palate with slightly austere tannins. Medium finish. Better with age. Best after 2003. 18,330 cases made. Finesse, elegance, as well as admirable flavors are characteristics of this dark ruby-colored, lighter-styled 1998. Offering abundant quantities of berry fruit, cassis, and spice box aromas and flavors, and an excellent texture, this evolved, delicious Margaux is best consumed during its first decade of life. Readers are advised to take a closer look at this property, which appears to be making better wines.

Winemaker's Notes:

The vineyard which provides the grapes for the production of white wine was created in 1990 on a small 1.5 hectare plot in the commune of Arsac. Thanks to the vineyard's sandy-gravel soils over a subsoil of clay, the wine achieves amazing complexity. Its fatness and aromatic finesse are brought by an ageing on fine lees in Burgundy barrels that are renewed by one third each year.
