1970 CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1970

The 1970 harvest was very large in volume, it benefited from excellent climatic conditions throughout the summer and until the end of the harvest.
The equipment of the vats, in particular the number of vats, was not adapted to such a large harvest even in the largest castles. The vinification conditions were therefore not always ideal. Indeed, Château Margaux 1970 testifies well to the quality of the vintage, but lacks a little concentration and flesh. Its nose is complex, well evolved, intense and quite harmonious. A fine and pleasant impression on the palate, but quite short and dry on the finish. This great wine should be drunk now, but it also has good keeping potential, and even improvement, as it tends to open up and blossom in the glass.

Medium intensity and mature color. Very intense, fine, fruity, fresh nose with a coffee note. Soft and lively at the same time from the onset, with taste, a touch of old wood in the flavor, a smooth and very slender body, the wine evolves particularly dry, a bit lively, but unbelievable. Here the magic comes from this rare and paradoxical association between softness and nervousness. These perceptions are the same as those found throughout the 2016 vintage. Drink between from 1990 to 2040.

Château Margaux
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
