The 2015 Château Margaux is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, all together representing 35% of the total production at the estate. Raised entirely in new oak, it has a lucid garnet color. The bouquet is aimed directly at the senses - there is no dilly-dallying about, as it almost knocks you off your stool with its intense mineralité embroidered into this iridescent, graphite-tinged nose. The focus and penetration here ranks among the finest that I have tasted at this estate since first coming here in 1997. The palate is astonishingly well balanced, perfectly poised with super-fine tannins wrapped around pure blackberry, bilberry, graphite and cedar fruit. Like the Pavillon Rouge this year, there is a Pauillac-like sense of authority and aristocracy, leavened by Margaux-inspired femininity that completes that standout 2015 on the Left Bank. Beg for a bottle and worry about the cost later. Post script: I composed this tasting note five days before the passing of Paul Pontallier. It is a final gift from a gifted winemaker.

Tasting note


The 2015 Chateau Margaux is a symphony of complexity and elegance. With a deep, shiny, dark ruby hue, it greets the senses with floral notes of cherry blossoms and lilacs. The palate is treated to a rich tapestry of full-bodied and concentrated flavors, yet the wine maintains a graceful lightness. The purity of the fruit is striking, leading to a sensuous, textural experience that beckons for another sip. This wine, a testament to the late Paul Pontallier's life's work, is a blend of strength, flesh, subtlety, and the inimitable charm of Château Margaux. It is poised for longevity, with silky tannins and a complex aromatic potential that promises to evolve beautifully.
