2016 Clos du Jaugueyron, Margaux 'Clos du Jaugueyron' red

Appellation: AOC Margaux (Bordeaux region)


Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (0% because of the frost in April)


Terroir: Gravels, clay, quartz pebbles, Arsac's terroir: sub area Tertre and Perrain.


Farming: Organic and Biodynamic 


Aromatics: Beautiful nose, this is a very perfumed wine with subtle smoky woody aromas perfectly integrated with just ripe blackberries and blackcurrants. This wine is all about finesse and I could keep smelling it for hours with it's dark chocolate and earthy notes. 


Palate: Soft and velvety attack, opening on a fleshy spherical wine with texture and impressive lengh. Like on the nose blackberries and blackcurrent are the main event here this is one of the pretiest Margaux I had the chance to taste. The tannins are present yet gentle and polished, I also like the sense of place and lengh of this wine as well as the smart use of oak and limited extraction. I think this gives the wine that perfect complexity and drinkability balance. This is a wine I love to drink and share now. Again this is for me a masterpiece from Stephanie and Michel.
