Description

95    Jane Anson for Decanter
“The perfume wafts slowly from the glass. Charcoal softness. Sure-footed, seductive and complex, with plum, damson and bilberry fruits; this is the real deal. Silky tannins and perfect lift. Wonderfully elegant structure; there’s so much to admire here.” (6/2016)

95    Roger Voss for Wine Enthusiast
“This is not a big Château Margaux, its style showing more elegance and discretion. The tannins are soft, although producing a dense web that lies underneath the black currant and plum fruit flavors. It is a wine that envelops the mouth, an edge of firmness over velvet fruit textures. The wine floats away slowly on the close.” (3/2009)

94    Neal Martin
“Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Margaux has a sense of airiness and wonderful definition on the nose: wild strawberry, redcurrant, cedar and crushed roses soaring from the glass, but it never strives for the opulence of say the 2006 Château Palmer. The palate is very well balanced with fine and quite firm tannin in the mouth. This seems to be approaching its plateau after a decade. While not a powerful or ostentatious Château Margaux, it epitomizes understatement and refinement in a similar vein to Lafite-Rothschild. It is only after the wine has been swallowed that you appreciate its qualities and you feel urged to go back for another sip.” (5/2016)

94    Wine & Spirits
A sexy vintage of Margaux, this is heady and seductive right from the start. Floral strawberry and red currant flavors back the wine’s gentle sweetness, while floral acidity gives it a sting. Black tannins hint at more serious, long-term prospects, though much of the vintage may get drunk before it has a chance to reach any deeper, more essential terroir expression.
