(11-1998) 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.

(06-2018) 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

A privilege to bear the name of its appellation Margaux, for Château Margaux there is no doubt ample justification.


For several centuries this Premier Cru Classé has expressed the highest degree of quality of exceptional terroir patiently assembled 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) derive their wealth deep in the soil which is clayey gravelly and particularly dense and thick. The fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, follows 18 to 24 months in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among Bordeaux, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals the delicate taste and opulence, depth and complexity, and exudes a rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruit, suspended by tight tannins that require patient aging before the wine fully expresses itself. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge de Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc de Château Margaux.


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