  • Ready, but will keep


Under the talented stewardship of John Kolasa, a former director of Ch. Latour, this rising star of Margaux has more than proved its pedigree with this rich, beautifully perfumed 2007. Considered the finest Second Growth alongside Mouton-Rothschild in the 19th century, it is only in recent years that this Chanel-owned property has really started living up to its potential. With crushed velvet black fruit, it is particularly sexy even for a Margaux, although its elegant tannins and precise, focused structure temper its lasciviousness. If you haven't already discovered the delights of Rauzan-Sgla this is an excellent vintage to start.
