Chateau Margaux, a Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux, is one of the most famous wines in the world. Care has been lavished on the property by a line of owners with an abiding concern for the reputation of the estate.
Winemaker Notes ... This wine has an extraordinary aromatic finesse, a tannic richness and a particularly dense and tight knit texture. The finish is very long, fresh and lively, a little bit firm but already packed with flavour. Such balance is a brilliant expression of Chateau Margaux's noble terroir.
95 Points Wine Enthusiast ... This is not a big Château Margaux, its style showing more elegance and discretion. The tannins are soft, although producing a dense web that lies underneath the black currant and plum fruit flavours. It is a wine that envelops the mouth, an edge of firmness over velvet fruit textures.
94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate ... It is worth noting that when the bottled 2006 Chateau Margaux, which appeared closed and less impressive than I had predicted from barrel, was re-tasted alongside the remarkable 2008, I elevated my score to 94+. It does not possess the size or power of the 2008 or 2005, but the 2006 exhibits impressive density, a deeper colour, and the beautifully textured, pure style that is a hallmark of this estate. Moreover, it is relatively precocious, and can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years.
