Chateau Margaux Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

This is a wonderful surprise. Showing an amazing nose of dried raspberries, strawberries, and flowers. On the palate this wine is full bodied, with pretty framed fruit and silky tannins. This wine is deep and wonderful, with scores of complexity... fascinating stuff.

    (1996 Vintage) Concentrated, Cassis, Cedar, Full-bodiedWine Advocate - 1st Growth, Margaux, Bordeaux, France "One of the great classics produced under the Mentzelopoulos regime. In many respects, it is the quintessential Ch Margaux, combining measured power, extraordinary elegance, and admirable complexity."Featuring pure notes of black fruits and violets.
