Tasting Note:

Having tasted the Pavillon Rouge, we had a certain sense of expectation - we were not disappointed. The 2017 Chateau Margaux is pure class. Fashioned from 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, and accounting for 37% of the crop, this is a consummate Margaux. Initially the floral fragrance of roses, potpourri and cherry blossom, then hints of Kirsch and pure raspberry and notes of gravel and cassis. The palate flows seamlessly into flavours of griotte and sweet redcurrant. It is so lucid and poised. There is a femininity to the precision and elegance of the fruit, but this us underpinned by power and authority. The press wines were so successful that 8% was included in the final blend. This lends power and breadth. As one would expect, the tannins are exceptional. They gently caress the mouth with noble fruits and touches of minerality. Despite its delicacy there is so much power and length - nuances keep developing and linger with real persistence. This is a truly exceptional Margaux and sits comfortably next to the extraordinary 2015 and 2016 vintages. Outstanding!
