Bud burst was early and flowering was rapid, followed by a hot, dry summer. Overall, the weather conditions were excellent. The 1943 vintage is a great success. It is the best wine produced at Château Margaux, and in Bordeaux in general, since 1934 despite the particularly difficult conditions that prevailed at that time due to the war. The success of this vintage is all the more moving.
Château Margaux 1943 is very good to drink today. Its bouquet is very fine, very elegant, closer to the great vintages of the 1950s than those of the 1940s. On the palate, this Premier Cru Classé is tender and harmonious and ends on a suave and sweet note. This delicious wine to drink can still be stored for a few years without any problem.

First noted in 1975 as deep; with delicate bouquet and taste, in good condition;an abrupt finish noted consistently. Nevertheless, even when it 'teeters on the brink', always interesting.

Château Margaux

A privilege to bear the name of its appellation Margaux, for Château Margaux there is no doubt ample justification.

For several centuries this Premier Cru Classé has expressed the highest degree of quality of exceptional terroir patiently assembled 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) derive their wealth deep in the soil which is clayey gravelly and particularly dense and thick. The fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, follows 18 to 24 months in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among Bordeaux, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals the delicate taste and opulence, depth and complexity, and exudes a rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruit, suspended by tight tannins that require patient aging before the wine fully expresses itself. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge de Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc de Château Margaux.

Best vintages of Château Margaux are : 1900, 1928, 1953, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1990
