Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Margaux du Château Margaux 2009 was produced from a great vintage, and posseses all those attributes: a deep, dark colour, a rich nose, it is voluptuous, already complex where flowery and spicy hints mingle with those of cocoa. The impression on the mouth reflects the intensity of the aromas; it is full-flavoured, rich and impressive, structured by well-softened tannins. The finish is soft, both warm and fresh. This wine is very powerful and concentrated - even more so than the first and second wines, and is quite remarkably open and easy to drink, which is probably owing to the personality of the vintage as much as to the Château Margaux terroir.

Winemaker's Notes

95 points Wine Spectator: The other wine of the vintage. Seriously powerful with fabulous color and mint, cassis and berry aromas and flavors. Has a full body and is tannic; still needs time to come around. Better after 1997. (10/15/94)
