    A red wine from Margaux powerful and extraordinary

    The 2009 Château Margaux hails from an unparalleled vintage boasting in its tannic power and fullness (reminiscent of 2005) while remaining soft and silky (reminiscent of 1990).
    The 2009 is perhaps the greatest young Château Margaux we have tasted over the last 30 years. And since its alcoholic degree is barely over 13, its finish remains fresh, flavorsome with an astonishing length. Mother nature could not have done it all by herself, barely 31% of the crop went into the first wine - a drastic selection for such a vintage. Still, in 2009, she surpassed herself. She allowed the greatest terroirs, whatever their grape variety, to bring their fruit to exceptional ripeness, providing a wine of wonderful concentration, finesse, balance and freshness. Even the small percentage of Cabernet Franc (2%) and Petit Verdot (2%) performed at their highest levels.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2009 Château Margaux is deep garnet in color and features wonderfully fragrant minted cassis, lilacs, Black Forest cake and oolong tea scents with touches of pencil shavings and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, grainy frame with lovely freshness lifting the perfumed fruit to a very long, mineral-laced finish.
