Score: 89/91Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (176), April 2008

A fresh and fruity young red, with currant and light vanilla aromas and flavors. Even a little white truffle. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicate finish

Score: 85/88James Suckling,, April 2008

57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot (because the Petit Verdot didn’t reach the optimum level of ripeness and so didn’t make it into the grand vin). Very aromatic. Mid purplish crimson with a weak rim. Looks a lot weaker than Alter Ego. Very fresh revitalising nose, pretty weak on the palate. But fine. For the first time I could taste something like stewed apples! Very soft gentle texture but without much density. Fragrant, dry finish, Pretty long. Quite a different expression from the more voluptuous Alter Ego, Very light and dry. Certainly a very valid expression of Margaux. 13%. Drink 2012-16

Score: 16.5Jancis Robinson MW,, April 2008

) Bright red-ruby. Very fresh aromas of cassis, raspberry, minerals, licorice and flowers. Supple and nicely fine-grained but a bit lean, with a faint herbal/peppery quality giving this moderately dense wine a dry edge. Finishes with a firm spicy quality and good length, but could use a bit more sweetness of fruit.

Score: 87/88Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

The nose has more red fruit showing than black, lots of perfumed strawberry underpinned by some bilberry. The fragrance is there on the palate, floral red fruits intermingled with black. The ripe and rounded tannins give suppleness on the palate yet freshness that emerges ensures a racy finish.

Score: 89/92Derek Smedley MW, April 2008

Good colour, attractively fragrant nose of fresh red berry fruit that starts discreetly and grows in the glass, a wine of breed and balance. Drink 2011-20. 4 stars.
