This is certainly the most feminine and most charming of the First Growths. It is usually the most pleasurable wine to taste out of barrel, then seems to close down more than most for around five years, before emerging with its true colours... The fundamental virtue of a great Château Margaux is poise; the way it tiptoes on the palate like a ballerina, full of strength and grace. The character of the wine itself is crushed blackberries, cassis and violets and the texture is very different from that of the Pauillac First Growths: rich, sensuous and seductive. Its tannins a finer, lending the wine a certain transparency and clarity that is rare in Bordeaux. (Producer Profile)
