If one of 2004 s enduring characteristics is its freshness then Margaux epitomizes this. It is so deliciously fresh and floating with great black currant and blueberry fruits pointed up by spice mint and a sense of elegance and poise. There s no doubt about its aging potential either: just feel that heart of firm tannins. Wine Enthusiast.

The supple-textured 2004 Chateau Margaux is reminiscent of the 2001 or 1999. It exhibits a superb blue/purple color to the rim as well as sweet aromas of flowers blueberries creme de cassis licorice and smoke superb fruit intensity medium body classic elegance and silky sweet tannin in the long finish. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Subtle and complex aromas of crushed raspberry milk chocolate and cigar box. Full-bodied silky and refined with layers of fruit and seductive tannins. Very long. A Margaux with finesse and reserve. Best after 2011. 12 500 cases made. Wine Spectator.

Bright red-ruby. Knockout nose features boysenberry currant cedar graphite and mocha. Suave gentle and sweet already displaying ineffable inner-mouth perfume. The 17% merlot component injects a silky component and the oak element adds a complementary sweetness. Complex lush horizontal finish saturates the mouth with flavor. It was not clear to me in April that the 2006 would exceed this-and it will certainly take longer to reach full maturity in bottle. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The great First Growth Bordeaux that every vintage exceeds expectations. Robert Parker offered some key insight into the 2004. "Always the consummate professional, Paul Pontallier is pleased with the 2004 Margaux, considering it to be a revelation after the final blend was made. The articulate Pontallier called it “neo-classic” to suggest the sweetness of the tannins and a style that he finds similar to 1996. Only 40% of the crop was included in the final blend (78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot), and it has a very high index of polyphenols (tannins). The harvest was completed between October 1 - 19. The 2004 is a streamlined, graceful example of Chateau Margaux with a deep plum/ruby/purple color and attractive black currant fruit intermixed with notions of white flowers, oak, and cherries. Rigidly constructed, with a lovely, medium-bodied texture, and tremendous purity, it will undoubtedly close down and need some time in the bottle. This beauty should be at its finest between 2010-2025. 93 Ponits."
