This is one of the unsung beauties of Margaux and one of its greatest values. Its links with England go back to 1433, when the medieval castle was given by Henry VI to the Duke of Gloucester. It has been owned and run since 1992 by Marie-Laure Lurton, helped by the Boissenot consultancy, which looks after a great number of the top Haut-Médoc properties. The vines are carefully tended to respect the natural environment, with Terra Vitis certification in place since 2003. Merlot makes up 49.5% of the 2022 blend, with Cabernet Sauvignon 44% and Petit Verdot 6.5%. Colour is rich purple, the nose being perfumed, with pure cassis and violet notes – a classically scented Margaux. Superbly ripened grapes ensure that the palate is suavely textured and deep in fruitiness. Acidity is in fine balance, as are mouth-coating, gentle, charming tannins (for drinking 2026-2034+).
