Château Larruau Margaux 2015
Bordeaux Margaux wines tend to be deep ruby in color, perfumed and floral, particularly with notes of violets and lilacs, and soft, silky tannins.
Less masculine and powerful than wines from other regions of Bordeaux, Margaux wines are typically more refined and elegant.
Château Larruau is one of those little nuggets that we taste and re-taste envy, always surprised by its concentration, density, and fineness. It is a wine which could largely be a 5th classified growth, but which remains confidential, at a very affordable price for this level of quality, and that for our greatest happiness. Typical of the Margaux appellation, Château Larruau offers a wine of enormous concentration, which nevertheless reveals itself to be of great subtlety, depth, and finesse. Bouquet of red fruit and plum, fresh acidity, fruit, and hints of chocolate on the palate with beautiful tannins. A must to discover! The 2015 vintage, solar and concentrated, will prove to be a fine vintage to keep but can be drunk now with a good opening.
