Burgundy. Mild. Bright with black highlights. Nose. Net. Medium intensity. And always end with a note empyreumatic cedar. Agitation. Net. Medium intensity. Animal button. End. Fresh attack on developing a lean, oval, with tannins well balanced but especially aromatic. In fact, the finish is long although the wine is not in the flesh. Well done with the kind of thought. .

Smells and tastes terrific, turning a bit tannic and tough on the finish, showing rich, ripe plum, prune and currant aromas and the same character when it hits the palate. But the finish clamps down with sharp tannins that will need until 1995 or so to soften. Tasted twice. –.

The 1987 is undoubtedly a success for the vintage. It exhibits good cassis richness, a solid texture, and above average concentration and depth. The compact finish contains noticeable tannins. .

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.
