Textbook Margaux! Subtly perfumed, and simultaneously supple and firm. This is the classic style of Bordeaux with perfect balance and a long, long finish. Margaux is in the Medoc region most renowned for tasting like “classy Bordeaux.” Les Barraillots is the kind of wine that would make your British friend say "Ah, capital claret indeed old boy!” A taste of the Bordeaux style slowly disappearing today in favor of a more “Napa Valley” style.
Serving Suggestions: Crown roast that’s a little heavy on the black pepper. Shepherd’s Pie. Chateaubriand in the classical preparation.
