Opens rather oaky but not spicy, raw woody, cedary with notes of dried peppers and cassis under the creosote edged wood. With time a nice note of crystalized floral tones begins to emerge. Full and slightly chunky in the mouth with bright acidity and absolutely polished tannins. The palate is richly fruited with red berry notes that are ever so slightly gamy. The finish is very long and offers up a classic array of cigar box and slice tones. best after 3 hours in the decanter but finished shortly after that. Give it and additional 2 years. 2011-2024 91pts

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

Smooth and well-balanced. My first Château Margaux, and I only had one glass. Cannot say that I understand why this wine would be 10 to 15 times the price of other good Margaux wines, but it is surely a wonderful wine. Drank it too young, I know... but it was served by the château, and beggars can't be choosers.

Could be one of my favorite, starting from expanding aroma, well balanced with aged taste lasting long.

Shows a tight nose but manages to convey pure fresh notes of red fruit and violet. Almost sleek with fine-grained tannins carrying the red currant paste and iron accents. The plum skin-tinged finish sings displaying remarkable integration already. A very impressive showing today. Tasted non-blind. J.M. Wine Spectator.

This quintessentially finesse-styled Margaux exhibits notes of pure black currants, spring flowers, graphite and forest floor. With supple tannins and medium body, this pretty, stylish effort reminds me of the 2001 or perhaps a modern day, improved version of their 1979. The lovely 2012 should be drinkable in 4–5 years and last for two decades.

An austere wine that has distinct acidity and a black-currant character. The texture is tannic and dry but its fragrant with a light green note that comes through at the end. Wine Enthusiast.

The 2012 Chateau Margaux 87% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot was picked around September 25th with the early ripening Merlot and the heart of the harvest was in early October. Most of the harvest was in before the rains. It has a very fragrant bouquet with macerated dark cherries minerals cold stone a touch of seaweed and a seam of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with superb tension on the entry. It is very focused with tensile tannins. There is

Bay leaf and menthol hints lift a core of crushed plum and warm cherry confiture notes while the background fills steadily with black tea, singed alder and iron elements. Turns a little darker on the finish, with a coating of bittersweet cocoa powder and roasted vanilla bean accents, while the minerality stays buried for now. Remarkably dense and packed, yet refined. Needs some time to unwind. Best from 2018 through 2030. 10,833 cases made.
