Tom Cannavan (01-1999) Medium/pale ruby/orange. Pale, browning rim. There's an immediate aroma of metallic tinned tomatos that is off-putting, but then a lovely sweetness of fruit emerges, with light raspberry and cherry aromas. Very attractive. On the palate the wine is now quite thin, but it is at that wonderful, ethereal stage of old clarets teetering on the brink of dry acidity, but still enough sweet, elegant fruit and cedary, old-wood finesse to make for absolutely lovely drinking. This definitely needs to be drunk-up, but a good bottle like this one is just delightful.

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
