External Reviews for Château Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Premier cru breed is apparent from the depth of color and the graceful complexity of the developing aroma. In Margaux style, the wine has two faces. Approach it once, and the shimmering surface of exotic spice charms in a fashionable sort of way. Approach it again, and the deep extract of tough structure show their potency within a fine balance. In fact, the wine is closed in on itself, even as its best assets glimmer just slightly out of reach.
1995 is a true great vintage with all the hallmark characteristics: power, depth, richness, complexity, subtlety and harmony. Today, the nose is not really closed but is still holding back a lot: all the aromas are most definitely there, but they are hiding a little in the shadows. On the plate, it is obviously the wine’s power which comes to the fore; the tannic structure is dense, tight-knit and firm, without being hard. A few more years of cellaring are required before beginning to drink this superb wine, whose balance guarantees a harmonious development in bottle. (December 2006)
