2017 Château Margaux, 1er Cru Margaux
There's wonderful intensity and purity to this Margaux - there's crunchy fruit, and it's crystalline and concentrated on the palate, with a clean saline edge. They compare it to 1996 - it maybe lacks quite that depth, but it's gorgeously transparent and nicely textured, with fine, lovely tannins and great length.
