Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Haut Médoc
Village Margaux
Classification 1er Cru Classé

Tasted at 28-50 restaurant at the 1994 dinner. The Chateau Margaux was easily the best wine of the night of 1994 Left Banks and better than Mouton and even better than the same wine tasted at the property twelve hours earlier. The reason is the life-affirming minerality and precision that acts as its badge confirming its status. The palate is extremely well balanced, showing up its less refined tannins. Along with Latour this is probably the finest Left Bank wine of the vintage. Sheer class. Drink now-2022.

Chateau Margaux was one of the last estates to bottle their 1994 (September, 1996), hoping to soften the vintage's high, hard tannin level. The wine has turned out to be a classic, long-lived Margaux. The opaque purple color is followed by this estate's tell-tale aromas of flowers, blackcurrants, licorice, and smoky oak. This dense, powerful, closed wine is a true vin de gard. It needs a decade of cellaring, but it should last for 25-35 years. Readers may find this wine reminiscent of the 1988, only riper and more powerful. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030. Rating: 92-92 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com(Jan 2006)
