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, until a change in ownership in 1977 restored the property to its rightful status. Since then the Chateau 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, 1998

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe

91 points Vinous
The 1998 Château Margaux is a vintage that I have not tasted for a decade. Now at 20 years old it has retained a deep garnet colour with very little ageing on the rim, in fact, one of the most youthful-looking 1998 Left Banks that I encountered. The nose is gorgeous: very well defined with black cherries, fresh fig, touches of sous-bois and leather. As I have noted before, what it does not offer is the floral element that is the signature of many other vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. It feels more mature on the palate than on the nose with secondary notes of sage, black pepper, irony notes and a touch of bell pepper.

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, 1975

Margaux,1st Growth Classification High shoulder, damage to edges of label

Fron Chateau Margaux's website.
"This vintage, which was immediately acknowledged in Bordeaux as a great success, developed very slowly in bottle, especially those wines that were Cabernet Sauvignon-based. We have wondered since that time if the Cabernet had really been picked at full ripeness, in so far as the tannins had remained firm, or even hard, for so many years. It is very likely that today, such a vintage would produce a different wine, very probably as concentrated but more accessible. 1975 came after three particularly difficult years (1972, 1973 and 1974). Perhaps the potential of this vintage was overestimated through understandable enthusiasm.

Chateau Margaux, 1969

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe
Magnum Bottle
Level high-shoulder, label slightly glue stained

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, 1966

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe (high shoulder, good label)

*** 91 points - Wine Journal ***

Review:
"this is a classic mature Claret that is delectable to drink now…and not too much later. There is a palpable coolness, almost aloofness on the nose that one often finds on this vintage, the overriding sense that this was a good vintage but not a hot one. It offers graphite, sous-bois and tobacco, the fruit having long ebbed away, yet it is still fresh and beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied and a little austere. Yet there is a sense of natural balance with fresh acidity and beguiling tertiary and cedar notes towards the finish. Wonderful.
