An outstanding vintage for this hidden gem in Margaux and a terrific value! The estate was formed in the early 20th century from two small vineyard plots purchased from classified growths Chateau Durfort-Vivens and Chateau Palmer. Thus, the pedigree of Les Barraillots couldn't be more solid. The small vineyard is situated in one of the highest elevations in Margaux, with gravelly soils that is perfect for the Cabernets and Petit Verdot that mostly make up the blend-55% Cabernet Sauvingon, 15% Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot, and 30% Merlot. The average age of the vines is 40 years-old, with the few rows of Petit Verdot nearly 100 years-old! 2006 is a great success in Margaux. This has beautiful concentration, a firm structure, with smooth, velvety tannins, allowing the wine to be easily enjoyed in its youth. A mere 2,000 cases are produced. A great buy!
