Finally a very good vintage! The only one from the 1930s… The summer was hot and dry, followed by excellent weather conditions throughout the harvest. The result is an abundant harvest, with an excellent level of maturity.
Château Margaux 1934 is still superb and presents a dense and deep color. This Premier Cru Classé offers a fine, complex, fresh bouquet and a powerful, rich mouth, with very present tannins, but a little dry on the finish. (Tasted in 2010 by Château Margaux) The bottles now remain uneven, but most magnums are very good. Clearly, this is a drinkable wine that can only begin to lose the very good qualities it has left.

My favourite '34.At Wagner's first Margaux tasting in 1977 : rich, biscuity bouquet -though faisandé. Sweet on the palate, assertive fruit, very tannic. Most recently, a richly flavoured bottle. Bouquet very attractive but just misses greatness. A high mark at Manfred Wagner's second Ch Margaux tasting.

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
