Château Margaux Margaux Bottle 2004
Berry Bros & Rudd review: With as much Merlot in the blend as the 1990 and 1996 the quality of this wine<br/>is as good as any vintage that winemaker Paul Pontallier can remember. When we<br/>tasted the 2004 Ch. Margaux we found it to be as fabulous and exciting as the<br/>2000 had been at a similar stage. The nose was simply beautiful - ripe, fine<br/>sweet, elegant and powerful with huge potential. The palate is expansive and<br/>multi-faceted. Alongside Latour, this is one of the two wines of the vintage.
Very tight at this point. Nice minty tinged fruit. It's elegant and delicious. - WS Grand Tour 2011

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."
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 ... Wine Enthusiast.
