The 1947 vintage was one of the hottest of the century, forming part of the series with 1945, 1946 and 1949.
Château Margaux 1947 is particularly powerful and still very fresh. The bouquet of this very great wine is intense, warm, marked by very ripe fruit. On the palate, the tannic power dominates and it leaves a slightly dry impression, rather typical of wines of this generation. This Premier Cru Classé is a wine for laying down, it can be drunk, of course, but it will keep without any problem for many more years.

(01-1998)  I was surprised at just how good the 1947 is because I had never been that impressed with most of the Medocs from that vintage. Among the first-growths in 1947, it is superior to Lafite and Latour, and just behind the great Mouton. Quite perfumed, rich, and full bodied, the 1947 Margaux is capable of another decade of evolution. Moreover, there is none of the volatile acidity or harshness that often creeps into many of the Medocs from that year.

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
