Tasting Note:

Luc explains that his 1.2 hectare plot used for Clos des Quatre Vents occupies the 'best spot at the top of the croupe of Margaux'. The vines are some 80 years old and 'are planted in a deep gravel soil on plots that are ideally exposed to the four winds. This wonderful situation ensures the grapes freshness and purity'. Again, vinification is completed in thermo regulated cement tanks before the wine is aged in 100% new oak barrels. Wonderful perfume, fragrant and floral with notes of crème de cassis and crushed rocks. There is an ample fruit core and the finish is pure blackcurrant over brushed velvet tannins. This again is one of the stars of the Margaux commune, outshining most of the established names. Kudos to Jacques Boissenot and Luc for another great success.
