Somber red. Medium to good intensity. Evolved. Clean. Very ripe fruit, a bit fresh and complete for a second wine, but a touch vegetal. A bit animal but not much. In the mouth, suave, carressing and fat enough, develops roundness with delicate flavourful and fine tannins. All together it melts in the mouth and it is absolutely delicious. The most interesting aspect is the appetizing nuance and the drinkability.

The 1990 is a lovely wine, with a fragrant bouquet, soft, medium-bodied, smooth-as-silk flavors, fine concentration, enough acidity for focus, and a fine finish.

Beautiful purple color. Elegant nose. Precious wood, chocolate. The palate is rich, juicy, dense. Another nice aging potential. Very good length (over a minute).

Château informations

A privilege to bear the name of its appellation Margaux, for Chateau 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.
