Because of unfavourable climatic conditions during blossoming, only a very few part of Merlot enters the Château Margaux 2002 vintage blend, wich is therefore highly dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. This atypical, delicate and pure Margaux offers a tender and full-bodied structure with tannins beautifuly integrated during the ageing process.
Performing better from bottle than at any time in cask (which of course is the objective of great winemaking, isn't it?), this wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color in a style somewhat reminiscent of the 1988 but with more power, concentration, and volume. It has a beautifully elegant nose of black fruits intermixed with truffle, flower, and oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, dense, with wonderful precision, freshness, and a long, full-bodied finish with impressive levels of concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030.
