(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.
A very powerful, full-bodied, complex and extraordinary wine. The bouquet is already exceptionally rich and intense. The impression on the palate is of much concentration, fullness and suppleness. Such a balance is rare. Long lasting but already charming.
