1961 CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1961

Tasting comment: Château Margaux 1961 is a sumptuous wine, at once soft, harmonious, rich, very dense and full of freshness. Its bouquet is unique: on top of the smell of undergrowth, so characteristic of the great wines of the time, an indescribable fruity and floral fragrance is superimposed... Smelling this wine is a moment of unforgettable emotion, of pure emotion ! The sensations that emerge in the mouth blend harmoniously with the aromatic feast of the nose: its tannic density asserts itself with softness and delicacy, the finish is a strong but tender caress. A truly wonderful wine. Today, the 1961 has lost none of its freshness, knowing that the magnums show more consistency than the bottles. Sure, it may be open now, but it was built for eternity.

Grape variety/Blend: Cabernet sauvignon (~75%), merlot (~20%), petit verdot (~3%), cabernet franc (~2%) (variations are possible from one vintage to another)

Aging: 18 to 24 months in new oak barrels

Falstaff

(12-2019) Deep crimson, broad orange rim. On the nose fine wild berry confit, discreetly backed by a hint of chocolate. Juicy on the palate, sweet, almost opulent, nuances of orange confit, finest acidity, silky tannins, red berry aftertaste, still going strong, should nevertheless be drunk soon.

(02-2020) Medium/full bodied, elegant, refined, soft and silky, the wine relies on its freshness and delicate nuances, instead of power and structure. Complex, captivating and caressing on the palate, this is at or probably slightly past its peak of maturity.

Wine Spectator

(04-1996) Mature. smooth and finely textured, showing a beautiful bottle bouquet, ample fruity, meaty flavors and firm but integrated tannins. Elegant compared to some of the vintage's blockbusters, and a joy to drink.

Tom Cannavan

(01-2007) A sense of composure and elegance here, with a nice Margaux perfume of red berry and cherry fruit, a little hint of plush blackcurrant and a touch of game. The palate is a touch lean, but it is composed and focused, with some layers of earthy and vegetal notes. Has a bit of depth and decent structure, though not a million miles ahead of other Margaux in this flight.

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
