Most vintages, Christophe bottles a “Quintessence”—a selection of the very best barrels which he gives an additional six months or so of élevage. Often, this bottling contains a slightly higher proportion of Petit Verdot and a lower proportion of Merlot than the basic Margaux, and it is neither richer nor firmer than its counterpart; instead, it is simply deeper and more complex—a “quintessentially” sensuous Margaux the likes of which are difficult to come by.
