very famous in china. little salt and easy to drink.
Smooth and well-balanced. My first Château Margaux, and I only had one glass. Cannot say that I understand why this wine would be 10 to 15 times the price of other good Margaux wines, but it is surely a wonderful wine. Drank it too young, I know... but it was served by the château, and beggars can't be choosers.

This has a wonderful nose of perfume, sandalwood, ripe plum and berries. Full-bodied, with seamless tannins and a long finish. Gorgeous. Best after 2015. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Chateau 750ml
Very powerful and rich. Fantastic. Full, silky and structured. Yet layered and rich, with loads of mineral, violet and coffee character. Incredible. So much finesse in the nose. What a wine. Similar to the 1995, which received 100 points. J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml
Good deep red-ruby. Deep but reticent aromas of redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice and loam; I dont find the typical floral high notes of Margaux. Juicy, fine-grained and suave, with good definition and a seamless, spherical texture to the currant a... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Chateau 750ml
It is worth noting that when the bottled 2006 Chateau Margaux, which appeared closed and less impressive than I had predicted from barrel, was retasted alongside the remarkable 2008, I elevated my score to 94+. It does not possess the size or power o... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Chateau 750ml
There are nearly 1200 cases of the 2006 Ermitage Le Pavillon. Since Michel Chapoutier released his first full vintage, 1989, of this single vineyard Hermitage, it has been one of the great wines of both France and the world. The 1989 and 1990 remain very young wines (I had them over the holiday break and was amazed by their still youthful personalities.). The inky/purple-hued 2006 exhibits a gorgeous perfume of crushed rocks, white flowers, creme de cassis, blackberries, graphite, and a subtle touch of oak. Exceptionally full-bodied, multilayered in concentration, extraordinarily pure, and long, this is a prodigious young Hermitage that should be at its finest between 2018-2050+. RP
Dark purple core with a thin fuchsia and pink rim. Bright red fruit aromas with notes of brambly dark berry fruits and light herbs. Fairly soft up front, but fruit and tannins both build on the mid-palate. Good balance, with lingering candied cherrie... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 750ml
For a number of years now, we have had a succession of great and very great vintages, surely proving that, at least so far, the weather conditions have particularly favoured the ripening of the Cabernet grapes. It shouldn't be overlooked though, that this success has also been the result of more and more rigorous selection: in 2006, barely 36% of the crop went into the first wine, which will only be a third by the time it is bottled, after the unavoidable loss of the lees wine at each racking. One single batch of Merlot, though of remarkably high quality, finally went into the blend, but it only represents 4% of the whole… It is the first time we have had so little. The Petit Verdot (4%) and the Cabernet Franc (2%) make up their usual proportions; they each bring added complexity that is difficult to define, but is most certainly a necessary contribution to the character of the wines of Château Margaux. The Cabernet Sauvignon therefore takes up almost all of the place: 90%! It brings to the 2006 an extraordinary aromatic finesse, a tannic richness that is second only to the 2005; 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. 2006 is therefore a great Château Margaux vintage. Of course, it is not 2005, or 2000; those vintages are exceptional. But it does have both the grace and the purity of the 1996, the so classic freshness of the 2004 and the heady power of the 1986 or the 1995. Such balance is a brilliant expression of Château Margaux's noble terroir.
