Tasting Notes

WS95

This has both sinew and flesh, with taut dried red currant, blackberry and plum skin notes that are forced to expand outward as the core of black tea, charcoal, plum paste and dark humus fills in quickly behind them. The charcoal-tinged grip carries the finish, with more bass than treble at first, but there's perfume here as well. Seriously long and the most overlooked of the truly great vintages here.

The Winery

Château Margaux

Château Margaux is a jewel in the Medoc region of Bordeaux and is quintessential example of elegance, luxury, and balance that the rest of the world seeks. A high percentage of Merlot is blended with a Cabernet Sauvignon base compared to other First Growths and the soils are thin and gravely, producing a more feminine wine of strong aromas of dark berries, fine tannins, and a lengthy finish. The dramatic Château was declared an original First Growth during the 1855 Classification and has been a premier example of the potential of Bordeaux ever since.
