"Medium-bodied, the elegance and finesse on the palate is simply bedazzling, exuding a quiet intensity of fresh black fruits layered with oh-so-subtle floral and earth nuances. It has a soft, velvety texture and seamless freshness to support the tightly wound flavors, finishing long and perfumed. Beautiful!" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Really brilliant. So classy."

Château Margaux is een van de meest prestigieuze wijnhuizen ter wereld. Het ligt in de regio Margaux, in het zuidwesten van Frankrijk. Het wijnhuis is sinds 1855 als Premier Grand Cru Classé aangemerkt, de hoogste classificatie van de Médoc-wijnen van Bordeaux.
Château Margaux werd in de 12e eeuw gesticht door de familie de Lestonnac. De eerste wijngaarden werden in de 16e eeuw aangelegd. In de 17e eeuw verwierf de familie Pontac het wijnhuis en werd het wijnhuis een van de meest succesvolle van Bordeaux.

De wijnen van Château Margaux worden gemaakt van een blend van druivensoorten, waaronder Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc en Petit Verdot. De Cabernet Sauvignon is de dominante druivensoort, met een aandeel van ongeveer 75%. De Merlot zorgt voor fruitigheid en zachtheid, de Cabernet Franc voor kruidigheid en de Petit Verdot voor tannines en kracht.

James Suckling (99/100 punten): "There is ripeness and opulence to this, in an almost exotic and sassy way. Crushed berries with chocolate and spice. Floral and cashmere undertones. This starts off slowly and just rolls off the palate with beautifully polished tannins and a salty, minerally note to the long, extended tannins. Really brilliant. So classy. Structured."

There is ripeness and opulence to this, in an almost exotic and sassy way. Crushed berries with chocolate and spice. Floral and cashmere undertones. This starts off slowly and just rolls off the palate with beautifully polished tannins and a salty, minerally note to the long, extended tannins. Really brilliant. So classy. Structured. Try after 2025.

The 2017 Chateau Margaux is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs a little coaxing to reveal alluring notes of blackcurrant cordial, Black Forest cake and black raspberries with suggestions of candied violets, tilled soil, fallen leaves, licorice and espresso plus wafts of underbrush and rosehip tea. Medium-bodied, the elegance and finesse on the palate is simply bedazzling, exuding a quiet intensity of fresh black fruits layered with oh-so-subtle floral and earth nuances. It has a soft, velvety texture and seamless freshness to support the tightly wound flavors, finishing long and perfumed. Beautiful! This grand vin accounts for just 37% of the crop.

A small section of the vineyards at Château Margaux was frosted in 2017, equating to around a 10% loss. Yields were 34 hectoliters per hectare overall. This year, the grand vin accounts for 37% of production, with Pavillon Rouge taking a hit and only accounting for 22% of production, in an effort to be ultra-selective with this second wine and maintain quality. Consequently, some very good wines went into the third wine this year. “I would say it is more of a Cabernet Sauvignon year this vintage,” winemaker Philippe Bascaules told me. “Cabernet Sauvignon was more concentrated than Merlot this year.” A little saignée was necessary on the Merlot but not so with the Cabernet. “The blend of Château Margaux has evolved to have less and less Merlot,” Bascaules continued. “Cabernet Sauvignon today is more the style that we expect.”

Extremely elegant and finessed spicing on the nose, this has beautiful aromatics, and a seductive lead in. It has added some flesh and creaminess over the ageing, and although you still get fairly high austerity at this point it is becoming well enrobed without sacrificing precision. Good quality and highly enjoyable, this will age effortlessly, fine boned in the 2001 or 2011 sense. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend, a little lower percentage than usual because they felt structure in the wine was already in plentiful supply. 27% of production.
