Editorial Reviews for Château Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
This shows its age and the quality of the vintage with it's ethereal nose of tobacco and dry earth. In the mouth this is very evolved and while light weight there is undeniable elegance as the palate remains focused with a graceful core of slightly leathery red fruit that remains delicious. 87pts
My boss - who was trying to educate my palate, but who didn't drink wine herself - bought a bottle of this for me while on a business trip at the bar at the Four Seasons hotel in New York. At that point in my life I'd probably only ever tried one serious Bordeaux.. in college. Anyway it was transporting. I couldn't finish it however, as valiantly as I tried, and she offered the rest of the bottle to the waiter. I haven't tasted it since.
Nwe Yearls Eve 2009 Big aroma plums and dark chocolate also in the mouth but an overriding discordant note. Good with roast beef but far from overwhelming

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 bla... Alex Lallos. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml
A great wine that is just starting out. The high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend gives the structured, black currant character. Dark chocolate and layers of wood are forward, revealing how young the wine is. And then the fruit, so rich and powerful, brings deliciousness to the firm, dense structure. Age for many years.
A mouthwatering tobacco leaf note leads the way, quickly followed by steeped black currant and fig fruit, with dark tar and ganache on the back end. Roasted alder and juniper hints hang in the background. Extremely backward, with a firm, tannic structure, this is girded for the long haul. Judging from the finely beaded acidity and lilting echo of lilac that peeks in now, this should acquire sensational aromatics and incredible grace with age. Best from 2018 through 2040.
The 2010 is a brilliant Chateau Margaux, as one might expect in this vintage. The percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend hit 90%, the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and only 38% of the crop made it into the Chateau Margaux. Paul Pontallier, the administrator, told me that this wine has even higher levels of tannin than some other extraordinary vintages such as 2005, 2000, 1996, etc. Deep purple, pure and intense, with floral notes, tremendous opulence and palate presence, this is a wine of considerable nobility. With loads of blueberry, black currant and violet-infused fruit and a heady alcohol level above 13.5% (although that looks modest compared to several other first growths, particularly Chateau Latour and Chateau Haut-Brion), its beautifully sweet texture, ripe tannin, abundant depth and profound finish all make for another near-perfect wine that should age effortlessly for 30–40 years.
Rated - No tasting note given. Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml
87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. Harvested Oct 1-15. Medium purple, brilliant with full intensity. Very much Pinot Noir like on the nose, with lovely perfume of mostly red fruits with a touch of flowers and spice. Cherry fruit to... Andy Frieden.
