Owner and winemaker Jean-Pierre Boyer remembers the legendary 1947 vintage and has been doing things much the same way since, just as his father did. Move over glossy, boozy, modern Bordeaux: this is old-school claret. There's no oak here - just concrete vats and extended ageing in bottle, which are released only when ready to drink. Relatively light, but delightfully tertiary, this is a beguiling look into the Margaux of old.
