External Reviews for Château Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
This is a dormant volcano of a wine waiting to explode with fruit. Bubbling over with flowers, blackberries, cherries and chocolate. Full-bodied, very chewy, adding masses of tannins. Long dried cherry, berry aftertaste. Very closed, it needs time; best after 2009.
Still not giving all it has to offer, this shows wonderful aromas and flavors of currant, violet, tobacco and earth. Full-bodied and powerful, with a solid underpinning of firm yet silky tannins. A classic Margaux. Best after 2000.
A great Bordeaux that only needs time to develop. Seductive, with a superb concentration of vanilla, spice, blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors. Has an iron backbone of tannins, but it still shows class and finesse. Seems to last forever on the palate. Try after 1999. 25,000 cases made.
Sleek and racy Margaux. Inky black in color, it offers intense aromas of wood-tinged blackberry, violet and cherry followed by mineral and berry flavors that unfold across the palate and go on and on. Full-bodied and powerful, with a compact fruit and tannin structure, it will be best after 2008.
Elegant, complex, seductive and beautifully balanced, with gorgeous plum, raspberry, currant and cedar aromas that hint at all sorts of exotic spices and chocolate on the exceedingly long, smoky finish. A classic, smoothly integrated wine that has the balance to develop well past 2000. 25,000 cases made.
The 1988 Margaux has a classic bouquet of violets and blackcurrants intertwined with the vanillin scents of new oak. Medium bodied, decently concentrated, but extremely hard and tannic, this surprisingly tough-textured, stern wine should outlive the 1989. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015.
Bright full ruby. Pure, perfumed aromas of cassis and violet. Dense and tactile in the mouth; a huge, chewy wine with major extract but also considerable refinement. Almost painfully backward today, and a bit less perfumed than is was in the year or so after the bottling, but the huge tannins show no hardness. Another great expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the '96 vintage. Drink 2015 through 2040.
Quite a deep colour at the core here, leading out to a pink-red rim. Quite fine on the nose, well defined black fruit, with subtle gravelly perfume and iodine, and even a little roasted herb. It flatters with a rich entry but thins out a little on the midpalate; it maintains a good texture but the structure is a little naked. It has a classic body of tannin, and is very well composed, but lacks the charm that many of the other wines demonstrate. Nevertheless, it has very good potential, but needs a decade-plus in the cellar.
