The 1992 vintage was quite unpredictable and complicated in the Bordeaux wine region. It is partly the know-how of the Château Margaux winegrowers and a strict selection during the harvest that made it possible to produce a great Château Margaux 1992.
Château Margaux 1992 has a lot of charm and finesse on the nose. On the palate, tenderness and finesse, this Premier Cru Classé ends on a very sweet note. It is a harmonious and elegant wine, which can be tasted now or in several years.

The 1992 Margaux displays an impressively saturated, dark rubypurple color, and a fragrant bouquet of cassis, vanillin, and floral scents. The wine is smooth, supple, wonderfully ripe, and seductive, with medium body, low acidity, and light tannin in the finish. It is drinking extremely well. Some tasters will no doubt rate it even higher than I have, given its elegance and layers of ripe, generous fruit that are presented in a medium-bodied format.
