Infos produit

The months of June, July and August being hot and dry, everything seemed to announce an exceptional year. Unfortunately, September was cold and very rainy and prevented the grapes from reaching excellent maturity.
Tasted by the Château in October 2018, Château Margaux 1952 revealed an astonishing freshness. It has a fine and elegant aromatic bouquet and a slight touch of austerity which gives it its charm. On the palate, this Premier Cru Classé gives a silky and tender first impression then ends with slightly firm tannins. It's still a very nice bottle, but it's better not to wait too long.

(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

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
