1989 will be remembered as an exceptionally early and easy year in terms of viticulture. Exceptional conditions favored flowering, veraison and ripening. Regarding the harvest, they did not experience a single day of rain.
The 1989 vintage was a dream year, it is a great vintage in Bordeaux. Château Margaux 1989 is of good quality and resembles the 1982 vintage. Rich, complex and of excellent maturity, this Premier Cru Classé can be drunk now or kept for a few more years.

(06-2017) Dark, intense and slightly evolved color. Large fruity nose, intense and very seductive. Very nice smooth entry in the mouth. The wine rises in the middle and begins to melt, offering great taste and a touch of great finesse. Long, dry and complex finish. Fine grain. This is delicious.

(06-2010) Bright garnet and some development at the rim. Herbaceous sweetness and undergrowth and pepper. Then more meaty. Finishes dry but not drying though there is definitely less flesh in the middle. By contrast it is fresh and persistent. Later: sweetly herbal and more coffee.

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
