Billing itself as the first “garage wine” from the appellation of Margaux, this comes from a property owned by Philippe Porcheron. The wine, made with meticulous care by the partnership of Muriel Andraud and Jean-Luc Thunevin, consistently performs well above its pedigree. Still youthful, exuberant and rich, this wine has a dense ruby/purple color and beautiful notes of violets, graphite and crème de cassis as well as some blueberry fruit. It is well-endowed, medium to full-bodied, and stunningly proportioned. This wine should continue to evolve and drink well for another 15 or more years.

This is dark, with intense aromas of crushed blackberry, currant, tar and mineral. Full-bodied, with a superrich palate of ripe berry, raspberry tart and vanilla. Soft and caressing, with loads of fruit. Best after 2012. 1,000 cases made.
