It offers everything you desire from this First Growth. It is blessed with breathtaking delineation and freshness on the nose, understated at first and then blossoming with mineral-infused black fruit, hints of blueberry, crushed stone and violet. The palate is perfectly balanced with filigree tannin, perfect acidity, a wine where everything seems to be in its right place. Blackberry, crushed stone at the front of the mouth, just a touch of spice towards the finish that shows supreme control. This is a Margaux that seems to light up the senses. It was outstanding in its youth...something that has not changed one bit over the intervening two decades. WA 100

Tasting note


The 1996 Chateau Margaux is a testament to the grandeur of the Margaux appellation, offering a symphony of well-integrated aromas and flavors. With a medium to deep ruby-red hue, the wine greets the senses with a rich bouquet of cedar, tobacco, and ripe red fruits. On the palate, it boasts a weighty presence of smooth, velvety tannins and a lavish spread of opulent, rounded fruit, all balanced by a poised acidity. The structure is abundant, leading to a concentrated core of fruit that gracefully transitions to a display of cedary tannins, culminating in a long, harmonious finish. This superb Margaux is a classic in the making, ready to enchant now or be cellared for future indulgence.
