1989 CHÂTEAU MARGAUX Magnum 1989

1989 will be remembered as an exceptionally early and easy year in terms of viticulture. Exceptional conditions favored flowering, veraison and ripening. Regarding the harvest, they did not experience a single day of rain.
The 1989 vintage was a dream year, it is a great vintage in Bordeaux. Château Margaux 1989 is of good quality and resembles the 1982 vintage. Rich, complex and of excellent maturity, this Premier Cru Classé can be drunk now or kept for a few more years.

Round and velvety wine, with lovely blackberry and raspberry characer. Full-bodied, with lovely tannins and a long finish. Still tight. Not as big as I remember, but excellent. I have always loved this wine. '89'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Best after 2008. (JS)

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
