Ch. Margaux (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted at the 1999 horizontal at Bordeaux Index. This Chateau Margaux was captivating in its youth and at ten-years of age it displays a wonderful, exuberant bouquet with blackberry, violet, boysenberry, a touch of spice and smoke. The palate is full-bodied, great depth and breadth with firm tannins, there is a real backbone to this Margaux, struck through with a tangible sense of mineralite that sends a tingle down the spice. It does actually take time to coalesce in the glass but it ultimately seduces the palate with its wily feminine charms. Lovely. Drink 2013-2030. Tasted June 2009.
