Information from the chateau: 1989 was a dream vintage. It was the most precocious since 1893… Merlots, cabernets and petit verdot grape varieties attained an exceptional level of maturity that reminded us of the legendary 1982 vintage. The level of sugar was even higher in the 1989 vintage. The evolution of the wine in the bottle confirmed the greatest hopes at its birth. Richness, complexity and opulence could be the key words to describe this exceptional wine.

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)

Margaux

A privilege to bear the name of its appellation, for Chateau Margaux there is no doubt ample justification. For several centuries this Premier Cru 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.
