Cab. Sauvignon | Merlot | Cab. Franc | Petit Verdot

Château Margaux, 1er Cru Classé, Margaux, 2019

Tasting Note:

This is one of the most sumptuous and graceful vintages of Chateau Margaux we can recall tasting. As ever the aromas are spectacular. There’s a slow reveal of flowers, berries, spices and then a complex array of minerals. Each time one explores the bouquet, one is met with fresh delights. What sets the 2019 apart from other vintages of Margaux is the texture and refinement of the mid-palate. There’s a creaminess to the pure fruit core, it coats the mouth, painting a three-dimensional flavour profile. It’s a real tour de force, a wine so effortless and controlled, yet exuberant and polished. The core of perfumed cassis keeps casting out new suggestions of humidors, tobacco, violets, licorice and Asian spice. The remarkable 2019 Margaux represents just 37% of the crop and is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

“The fantastic quality of the cabernet sauvignon really 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. 37% of the production and 90% cabernet sauvignon, 7% merlot, 2% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot. 99-100/100”. - James Suckling,

"The 2019 Château Margaux is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, accounting for 37% of the crop. The alcohol came in at 13.9%, the IPT was 75, and the pH was 3.66. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose begins with intense scents of crushed blackberries, warm cassis and plum preserves before fanning out into a whole array of floral, exotic spice and earth scents: iris, red roses, star anise, cassis, tilled soil, moss-covered bark and black truffles, with an emerging waft of crushed rocks. The medium-bodied palate quivers with energy, emitting loads of mineral sparks, featuring bold freshness and fantastically ripe, finely grained tannins to support the delicate, perfumed layers, finishing very long and wonderfully poised. The juxtaposition between the acidity and the richness in this Château Margaux is just extraordinary! 97-100/100". - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate
