Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

($225-$239) Bright red-ruby. Knockout nose features boysenberry, currant, cedar, graphite and mocha. Suave, gentle and sweet, already displaying ineffable inner-mouth perfume. The 17% merlot component injects a silky component, and the oak element adds a complementary sweetness. Complex, lush, horizontal finish saturates the mouth with flavor. It was not clear to me in April that the 2006 would exceed this-and it will certainly take longer to reach full maturity in bottle.

Pretty low key on the nose. Easy to miss - there are no bells and whistles on this wine at four years old. In a very teenage phase at the moment. A little raw and unresolved. Medium weight. Just a slight lack of sweet fruit on the mid palate. It is certainly 2004 in character and has pretty good length, but there is a slightly green note on the finish.

The supple-textured 2004 Chateau Margaux is reminiscent of the 2001 or 1999. It exhibits a superb blue/purple color to the rim as well as sweet aromas of flowers, blueberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and smoke, superb fruit intensity, medium body, classic elegance, and silky, sweet tannin in the long finish. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more.

Subtle and complex aromas of crushed raspberry, milk chocolate and cigar box. Full-bodied, silky and refined, with layers of fruit and seductive tannins. Very long. A Margaux with finesse and reserve. 12,500 cases made.

e nose shows a pronounced cassis and ripe, black cherry character, high intensity. Medium+ body with graceful, complementing acidity and mild tannins for a considerably young wine. Well balanced and not over the top. Drinking well now and will continue for the next 10-15 years+ medium length.

Purchased on release. Double decanted, recorked and served 8 hours later. Quiet nose explodes with Margaux florals and fragrances after 15 minutes in the glass, defining the flagship of the AOC. Swirling in more oxygen adds color, depth, and power. Red fruit turns black, and tobacco & graphite emerge. Medium-full, silky textured, long and beautiful. Not in a hurry.

About This Producer


Chateau Margaux is one of the five First Growths ranked in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. The neo-Palladian style chateau was built in the 18th century by architect Louis Combes for the Marquis de la Colonilla. Chateau Margaux has been well regarded in history and stands among Thomas Jefferson's favorite chateaux. Since 1977, the estate has been directed by the Mentzelopoulos family with winemaking team director Paul Pontallier, cellar master Jean Grangerou and consulting oenologist Emile Peynaud. The vineyards are primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), with the balance composed of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. In addition to the chateau's grand vin, the estate produces a second label called Pavillon Rouge de Chateau Margaux and Pavillon Blanc de Chateau Margaux, a white made from Sauvignon Blanc. Chateau Margaux's finest vintages include 1900, 1928, 1953, 1961, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1990, 1996, 2000, 2003, and 2005.

Margaux is often considered the most "feminine" of the First Growths. It is sensuous with fine tannins that give it a sense of clarity. The wine has dark berry aromas such as boysenberry or blackberries. The bouquet is characterized by ripe black currants, spicy vanilla and violets. A strong minerality is often found in the lengthy finish.
