Espresso, chocolate and cherry notes open the wine. On the palate, you find loads of supple, polished, creamy, red fruits, cocoa and coffee bean. The wine exchanges complexity for pleasure and it works, because this is probably the best vintage Clos Margalaine I recall, ever tasting. And, you can drink this with pleasure on release. Drink from 2023-2032.
