Attractive fruit and oak nose; after three hours positively exotic, full of fruit and oak but well integrated. Most recently, an amazing fragrance; very sweet, chewy but alongside the 2000 a touch of rawness. .

Beautiful dark red. Nose end evoking coffee and fruit. Something fresh and subtle. On the palate this wine melts like candy! Tasty finish to the grain of fine tannin. A very pleasant sweetness. Superb wine to drink now.

Offers decadent aromas of walnut, raspberry and mulberry. Very complex. Full-bodied, with an earthy, lightly vanilla, berry, coffee bean and floral flavor. Refined and caressing. Very, very subtle. Why wait?.

The sexy, dark plumpurple-colored 1999 Margaux is already revealing complex aromatics. This surprisingly charming and round offering is reminiscent of a vintage such as 1985. Although neither a blockbuster nor a heavyweight, it grows in the mouth revealing tremendous length as well as purity. Administrator Paul Pontallier prefers it to the more austere 1998, as do I. This is an archetypical Chateau Margaux of richness, finesse, balance, and symmetry. It can be drunk young, but promises to age nicely for two decades. Extrapolating backwards, it would probably have something in common with the underrated 1962 Medocs.

(6-2009). Scented, biscuit, sweet nose. Exciting. Real energy here. There's a hint of milk chocolate and slightly dry tannins but it would make a good bottle to drink now. .

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.
