If there are several bottles in stock, the displayed photo is not contractual and illustrates the state of conservation of the bottle.


Marked by a very mild winter and a wet spring, this year the harvest was carried out in excellent conditions.
Château Margaux 1988 is quite similar to the previous vintage. The color of this Premier Cru Classé is very deep, the nose is rich and intense and the structure in the mouth is magnificent. When ripe, however, it can be kept for several more years to reveal all its power and aromas.

Still not giving all it has to offer, this shows wonderful aromas and flavors of currant, violet, tobacco and earth. Full-bodied and powerful, with a solid underpinning of firm yet silky tannins. A classic Margaux.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2000.

Dark color, of normal and advanced intensity. Moderately aromatic nose, with fresh and lively fruit. Becomes smoother with agitation. Essentially juicy, flavorful and pleasant on the palate that stretches a bit harsh over a normal length. This bottle comes out less well than the one commented on in the Château Margaux vertical. It was taken from the same fund.

Château Margaux

Château Margaux is one of the largest wine estates in Bordeaux. In AOC, Margaux appears in the first classified growths of the official classification of Médoc wines of 1855.

If it is a privilege to bear the name of its Margaux appellation, there is no doubt that Château Margaux does it great honor.

For several centuries, this Premier Cru Classé has expressed to the highest degree the exceptional qualities of terroirs patiently brought together by several generations of owners. Maintained and harvested exclusively by hand with extreme care, the 78 hectares of vines (75% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet-Franc and Petit-Verdot) draw their richness very deeply from the soil. clayey-gravelly, particularly dense and thick.

Fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, is followed by 18 to 24 months of aging in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among the Bordeaux wines, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals finesse and opulence, depth and complexity on tasting, and develops a bouquet of rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruits, under -taut by tight tannins that require patient aging before blossoming. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux (100% Sauvignon Blanc).

Best vintages of Château Margaux are : 1900, 1928, 1953, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1990
