Chateau Le Coteau - Margaux 2019
Chateau Le Coteau is an enchanting Bordeaux blend, harmonious, and dense, perfect to drink now or cellar until 2026.
Château le Coteau is one of the very last family estates from the prestigious Margaux appellation. It has been in Eric Léglise’s family for at least six generations, and now he is the one in charge of the estate, working with passion and humility. Aware of his ancestor’s work and the singularity of this terroir, neighbours of top Classified growths such as Château Rauzan-Ségla, Château Giscours or Château du Tertre... Eric Léglise always applied methods respecting environment and his terroir: his vines have always been ploughed and never received a drop of weedkillers.
Château Le Coteau has a beautiful bouquet, very expressive, with red ripe fruits, blackcurrant, blackberries, some very fine spicy notes, and torrefied coffee beans. On the palate the wine has an enchanting, silky structure, very harmonious and dense. The finish is long, and balanced with great acidity and freshness. Drink now or cellar up until 2026+.
Blackberries, blackcurrants, mushrooms, walnuts and baking spices on the nose. Medium-bodied with fine tannins. Silky and juicy with an elegant finish. Pretty Margaux. Drink after 2023. 91 points, James Suckling.
