"A surprisingly fresh Margaux considering that it's dominated by 87% Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense tannins, black fruits and tight acidity combine to present a wine that shows, for a Château Margaux, medium-term potential." —Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"This is tannic and rich on the finish. Lacks a bit on the center palate, but full and very pretty fruit. Long finish. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, 9% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot." —James Suckling

"This quintessentially finesse-styled Margaux exhibits notes of pure black currants, spring flowers, graphite and forest floor. With supple tannins and medium body, this pretty, stylish effort reminds me of the 2001 or perhaps a modern day, improved version of their 1979. The lovely 2012 should be drinkable in 4-5 years and last for two decades." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Shows a tight nose, but conveys pure, fresh notes of red fruit and violet with remarkable integration already." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
