96 Points. Jeanie Cho Lee. 1 March 2016

18.5/20 Rating. Jancis Robinson. 1 April 2008

Sweet nose that seemed slightly oaky at first – certainly very different from the rest and perhaps not quite as perfumed and silky as one would like. Although it grew in the glass to be more stereotypically Margaux – certainly no lack of concentration and fruit… Lots of life and energy and then attractive sweetness all within a pretty firm framework. Attractive balance. Still very dense – seems at about the right point of evolution for a 10 year-old first growth. Still quite a bit of tannin but the fruit is maturing nicely. Very fresh – may be too much so? Jancis Robinson
