This is a superb vintage for Chateau Margaux, and while it may be too early to say this, the 2008 appears superior to the 2007, 2006, 2004, 2003, 2002, and 2001. Only 36% of the crop was utilized and the yields were 40 hectoliters per hectare. An exc... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml

A dense wine, but without huge power. It goes for the elegant side of Margaux, soft, beautiful. The black cherry fruits are lively, juicy, with extra fresh acidity. Not big, but definitely elegant. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml

87% Cabernet Sauvignon; 10% Merlot; 1.5% of Cab Franc & Petite Verdot each. Only a third of the harvest went into the final selection of their top wine. Margaux got it right in 2008, showing that with sacrifice, fine wine was made. Classic notes o... David Derby. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml

A wine that has all the grace of Château Margaux, but just a hint of depth and power. The tannins stay soft and there are hints of spice as well as a distinct acidity Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 750ml

Currant and berries on the nose, with hints of vanilla and coffee. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and lovely fruit. Refined and pretty, but short. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 750ml

The second wine, the 2008 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux, represents 47% of the crop (keep in mind that 17% of the total crop was sold off in bulk), and is composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, and the rest mostly Petit Verdot with a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc. It is a beautiful wine exhibiting classic purity along with red and black fruits intermixed with licorice, tobacco leaf, and floral nuances. Sweet, round tannins, and a lovely forward freshness suggest this stunning second wine should drink well young, yet last for 15+ years.
