Château Margaux 1952 is a very great wine. It has a fine and elegant aromatic bouquet and a slight touch of austerity which gives it its charm.

Avis d'expert

Jean-Marc Quarin
(06-2017) Evolved color, medium intensity. Intense nose, with very ripe fruit, slightly oxidative, with a touch of wet wool. Not at its best. Soft on the attack, immediately very tasty, immediately melting, the body is tense and meticulous in its tannin and taste. Very long, dry finish. A touch more reminiscent of great dry white wines than reds. Here the tannin is eclipsed. Superb.

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
