Château Margaux, Bordeaux Wine Region, France

Bordeaux blend, Drinking Now 2030


Tasting Notes

Very pure CS, black, cassis, kirsch. Very concentrated but without being forced. Overlay of lavender and minerals. Tannins wonderfully fine. A great classic, fresh, balanced and the thoroughbred. Grace, purity and elegance but wonderful drive and follow-through, touch of mint on the finish. Great wine. 19 points

Reviews & Scores

(90% cabernet sauvignon, 4% each merlot and petit verdot, and 2% cabernet franc) Medium bright ruby. Compellingly perfumed nose of boysenberry, cassis, graphite, licorice and violet. Suave on entry, then imploded in the middle and extremely slow to show itself. Very pure, understated black fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors are like an essence of cabernet. Savory rather than particularly sweet: there's nothing easy or obvious about this wine today. A dry and classic style; the tannins are tight for a young Margaux but not hard, and the finishing flavors are vibrant and perfumed. The pH of 3.68 is on the low side for a wine from this chateau. 92-95 points
