Chateau Margaux

Chateau MargauxChateau Margaux is one of the grandest buildings amongst the Médoc châteaux. A chequered period of ownership in the 19th and early 20th century meant that the quality of some Margaux vintages was patchy. The change in ownership in 1977 restored the property to its rightful status. Since then Ch. Margaux has progressed to produce some legendary wines as well as displaying consistency through the not so good years.

The estate has 82 hectares under vine, with Cabernet Sauvignon dominant (75%) with 20% Merlot making up most of the rest, along with a smattering of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Typically, about 12,000 cases of Grand Vin are produced.

Margaux wines are renowned for its perfumed elegance, structure, layers of complexity, and formidable length.

Chateau Margaux, 2008

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe

Reviews
This is a stunning Chateau Margaux, made in a sexy, up-front, elegant style, with deep creme de cassis fruit intermixed with spring flowers, a solid inner core of richness and depth, but again, very sweet tannins as well as striking minerality and elegance. One of the most seductive Chateau Margauxs given its recent bottling, this blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot should drink beautifully for the next 25-30 years. Remarkably, a mere 36% of the entire production was selected for the 2008 Chateau Margaux.

Chateau Margaux, 2004

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe MAGNUM Bottle

With as much Merlot in the blend as the 1990 and 1996 the quality of this wine is as good as any vintage that winemaker Paul Pontallier can remember. This is as fabulous and exciting as the 2000 had been at a similar stage. The nose was simply beautiful - ripe, fine sweet, elegant and powerful with huge potential. The palate is expansive and multi-faceted. Alongside Latour, this is one of the two wines of the vintage.

Chateau Margaux, 1983

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 96 points Robert Parker ***
*** 96 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews
"As I have noted consistently, this can be a breathtaking wine, but having tasted it close to a dozen times since the last edition of this book, over half the bottles were marred by tainted corks. In fact, one would almost wonder if there was TCA problem in part of the wine storage area. The percentage of corked half-bottles is even higher than in the regular format. However, when clean this 1983, which has seemingly reached full maturity far faster than I would have guessed a mere four years ago, has a dense, murky plum/purple color and a gorgeous nose of smoked herbs,

Chateau Margaux, 1980

Margaux, 1er Grand Cru Classe (faded label)

Chateau Margaux's success in this vintage was acknowledged by all. They were fortunate to harvest late, well after the rains and in excellent conditions. Whilst 1980 is not a great vintage, the Margaux is supple, aromatic fine and well balanced. It has developed beyond our expectations and has become a delicate vintage that is a joy to drink.

Chateau Margaux, 1973

Margaux, 1st Growth Classification, vts, good label

Red with brown rim. Beautiful colour. Berries and forest floor on the nose. A marginally short taste with a bitterness that disappeared after about ten minutes. The wine is resolved and there are no hard edges.
Outperforms the vintage in a stunning manner.

Chateau Margaux, 1969

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe (label bin soiled)

The 1969 Chateau Margaux has been fully mature for more than two decades. It is medium ruby with some amber/orange colour at the edges, possessing a light-intensity, fragrant bouquet suggestive of berry fruit and oak. On the palate, the flavours reveal adequate fruit and concentration, but the acidity is sharp in the finish.

Chateau Margaux, 2003

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe

98 points Robert Parker: "This was the finest performance by this wine that I have seen since it was released. I did not expect the 2003 Chateau Margaux to show this well in a vintage where the southern part of the Medoc was clearly less impressive than the north. However, it is a beautiful, dark plum/purple-tinged effort with sensational aromatics, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a youthfulness, precision and freshness that belie what one generally associates with this vintage. It can be drunk now and over the next 15-20 years. Kudos to Chateau Margaux." (8/2014)

Chateau Margaux, 1993

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe

92 Points - Robert Parker

Less than 50% of Margaux's 1993 harvest made the grade for the estate's "grand vin." A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and the 2% Cabernet Franc, Margaux's 1993 is atypically supple and seductive. It offers an impressively saturated ruby/purple color, an intense fragrance of red and black fruits, toast, and spring flowers, and a voluptuously-textured, multi-layered personality, with expansive, sweet, ripe fruit. It is surprisingly forward, without the mouth-aching tannin possessed by many 1993s. The wine is medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, and reminiscent of this property's splendid 1985.
