Cabernet Sauvignon 70%, Merlot�25%, Cabernet Franc 5%
Michel Theron makes two cuvees of Margaux from 2.71 hectares of vines. This, the top cuvee, has a dark cherry colour, very sensitive extraction, the class and reserve of cabernet, and terrific fine grained tannins on a very long finish.
This top cuv�e is a selection from specific parcels and barrels oriented towards cabernet (the soils are more gravelly in the higher part of the vineyard where cabernet is planted and sandier for merlot in the lower). Aged for 12 months in 85% new and 15% one year old barrels, then nine months in cuve to settle the wine.�
