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 art of winemaking, presenting a medium to deep ruby-red hue that invites you to discover its rich, ripe, and intense aromas. A well-knit blend of cedar, tobacco, and red fruit greets the nose, while the palate is graced with a weighty presence of smooth, velvety tannins and opulent, rounded fruit. The balance of acidity ensures each sip is as inviting as the last. With a structure that persists, revealing a concentrated core of fruit and cedary tannins, the wine concludes with a long, harmonious finish. This superb Margaux is a classic example of its appellation, ready to impress with its purity and balance.
