Maison Sichel is a grower, winemaker and négociant éleveur - to save you reaching for your French dictionary, that last one's a purchaser of wine for bottling under its own name. Now I can't tell you exactly where Sichel source their Margaux, but I can say that it's declassified fruit from a First Growth property in Margaux (a small hint: there's only one...) First Growth-level fruit for under £25 - an unbelievable steal! Damson and blackcurrant, cocoa powder and cedar spice, this is still a baby but will offer plenty of drinking pleasure over the years, when leather, truffle and clove will start to emerge. Drink to 2030.
