This still broods seriously, with dark plum, currant and blackberry fruit, studded with charcoal, singed tobacco and cedar notes and backed by a serious grip of roasted earth. The gorgeously long finish is driven by old-school tannins, with the smoldering edge going on and on. A brick house of a Margaux, with more charcoal than graphite, more austerity than elegance and more power than refinement.
Medium garnet colour going brick at the rim. The nose is beginning to showing signs of evolution with aromas of leather, game, warm cassis, dried plums and cloves. Medium to high acidity, medium body and medium to firm, fine tannins support earthy, blackcurrant-preserve fruit. Long finish.
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.
