1971 CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1971

The months of July and August were very hot and dry, however there was a lot of rain during the month of September, which did not prevent the small harvest from reaching good maturity.
Château Margaux 1971 is well balanced, complete, particularly fine and subtle, but lacking in power and length. The finish of this Premier Cru Classé is soft and tender, but beginning to show a little dryness. This great wine is to be drunk now.

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

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
