This vintage is outstanding for its display of well ripened fruit, fine, plump tannins, and a good freshness to ensure classic balance.
The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Château Margaux charges from the gate with opulent kirsch, raspberry preserves, wild blueberries and cassis notions accented by roses, violets, Chinese five spice and fragrant earth with touches of underbrush and truffles. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with vibrant, ripe red and blue fruits, layering in perfume and spice nuances. robertparker.com
A champion of longevity. Even when young, Talbot is pleasant and rounded, ever distinguished by silky, mild and very civilized tannins. It’s a racy wine, with complex marks of Havana and licorice, classically delicious without ever the slightest hint of austerity.
The 2017 Rauzan-Segla has a profound nose of cassis, warm blackberries and black plums with touches of baking spices, violets, mocha and smoke plus a waft of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied with a great core of sustained, energetic black fruit, a frame of fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, it finishes with great length. robertparker.com
