External Reviews for Chateau Margaux Margaux
90% cabernet sauvignon 7% merlot 1.5% cabernet franc and 1.5% petit verdot. Super perfumed aromas of crushed violet black cherry blackberry liquor and crushed rock flourish on the nose trailed by vanilla and kirsch. The palate exhibits more blackberry and cassis along with chocolate and exotic Asian spice. This shows amazing purity and elegance for a wine of such concentration and power and comes across as silky smooth thanks to the fine grained tannins. 13.5% alcohol. This is Margaux a pure expression and an absolutely stunning wine! Better than 2009 and perhaps one of the best ever. Tasted at Chateau Margaux. Alex Lallos.
Unbelievable as it may sound, Château Margaux 2010 is at least as great a vintage as 2009. Once again, the Cabernet Sauvignon made the most of this very dry and cool year. With as much as 90% in the blend, the Cabernet makes the wine, providing it with exceptional aromatic finesse, restrained power and subtle freshness. There is not much room left for the Merlot (7%), Cabernet Franc (1.5%) and Petit Verdot (1.5%). The genius of these Cabernet plots is astounding. Château Margaux 2010 is sheer magic; think classic, with a twist. Classic indeed, thanks to its purity, finesse and soft and refreshing finish. Add to these qualities astonishing aromatic complexity and outstanding power and the result is an exceptional year. Technology and stringent selection make it a "modern" wine, while its magnitude and charm ensure a timeless Château Margaux vintage. This 2010 is beyond the realms of time and fickle fashions.
