Château Le Coteau, Margaux, 2016

Eric Leglise works one of the last family owned estates in Margaux, his parcels of vines in the commune of Arsac surrounded by vineyards belonging to grand names such as Giscours, Rauzan-Segla and Issan. His land just didn't get noticed in the 1855 classification, so his Margaux, though from identical terroir to his neighbours, sells for so much less.

Lovely, approachable scent of blackcurrant, tinged with vanilla; and then rather a silky mouthful of cooked strawberries and blackberries. Very expansive: already showing so well with gorgeous fruit over very supple tannins. So pretty - this doesn't rely on extraction and excessive ripeness for its appeal, just perfect fruit picked at the right moment - note the moderate alcohol. Now-2025

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.
