Chateau Margaux, a Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux, is one of the most famous wines in the world. Care has been lavished on the property by a line of owners with an abiding concern for the reputation of the estate.
The Grand Vin of Chateau Margaux 2019 is an excellent vintage and one of the precious wines we have been lucky enough to produce this decade, in 2015, 2016, 2018 and now 2019. Cabernet Sauvignon still forms the heart of the Chateau Margaux, accounting for 90% of the assemblage, and Merlot accounts for 7%. In addition to our emblematic parcels, this year, we have added the Merlots from the Haut du Jardin parcel, bringing body and charm to the wine. The Cabernet Franc (2%) and the Petit Verdot (1%) complete the assemblage. Chateau Margaux represents 37% of the harvest.
100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Is the 2019 Chateau Margaux the wine of the vintage? A strong case in its favour could undoubtedly be made. Soaring from the glass with aromas of blackberries, raspberries, rose petals, violets, pencil shavings and vine smoke, it's full-bodied, layered and sensual, with a strikingly vibrant core of fruit that's framed by ripe, powdery tannins and bright acids, concluding with a brilliant, mouthwateringly saline finish of almost interminable duration. Complex, elegant and utterly compelling, this is a brilliant Bordeaux that anyone with the requisite disposable income will want to own. Best after 2029.
99+ Points - James Suckling
The fantastic quality of the cabernet sauvignon comes through here with black currant, blueberry and raspberry character. It's full-bodied with such tightness. It's so beautiful in the center palate. The tannins are wonderfully blended into the wine and flow across the palate. Rather leaner and racy. Ethereal.
