3 stars " Very deep ruby, lovely, ripe and smooth Cabernet-Merlot fruit, soft and seductive, could have more grip, but may gain this in barrel, floral and charming, very attractive." Best 2008-2016

"90-92 points: Deep ruby/purple in color with an elegant, focused bouquet of floral notes intermixed with blueberry, black currants and some earth and spice, this wine reveals elegance, ripeness, good freshness, and a medium-bodied, attractive finish with low acidity, supple tannins, outstanding depth, and overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2017." Best 2008-2017

90 points "This beautiful, elegant 2003 is a top-notch success for Margaux. More accessible and softer than usual, it boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as a beautiful bouquet of flowers, black currants, plums, and underbrush. Medium-bodied, velvety-textured, opulent, and complex, it can be consumed now and over the next 10-15 years. " Best 2006-2021
