Château Margaux is one of Bordeaux’s most famous wine estates, located just east of Margaux itself in the Médoc. Along with Lafite, Latour and Haut-Brion, it was rated as a first growth in the original 1855 Bordeaux Classification of the Médoc.
Generally, Margaux is considered as the most elegant of the first growths, and is consistently one of the most expensive wines in the world. The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend is complimented with small portions of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
This wine is deeply pigmented, medium ruby-red color. The aromas are quite intense, with fresh red-fruit combined with cocoa-butter. on the palate the redcurrant fruit seamlessly blends with a silky smooth & supple tannic structure. The acidity is lively, alcohol is balanced & the finish is long. Cedary oak adds an opulent vanilla to the mid-palate, but closes up the finish a little early.
Taste: Violets, tobacco, cocoa, coffee, creamy cassis, blackberry, cigar box and truffle get you instantly involved with the wine. In the mouth, the wine is silky smooth, with a rich, ripe, sweet, cassis, black cherry and wild strawberry jam finish. It’s fun to drink now, but a few more years of bottle age will more complexity to the wine. The wine softened and fleshed out after 3 hours in the glass.
