K&L Notes

96 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Château Margaux was observed over a period of 24 hours. I used the word "luxurious" to describe the nose when I encountered this First Growth from barrel, and it’s still apt to use now the wine is in bottle. It just blossoms over time, revealing gorgeous blackberry, raspberry, crushed violet and peony, and hints of shucked oyster shells, all delivered with the precision one expects from a first-division Claret. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, still as silky-smooth as ever, offering blood-orange-infused black fruit that is crystalline on the finish. You almost miss the structure behind this Château Margaux that should ensure it will age over the next three or four decades. Utterly sublime." (3/2021)

    The Grand Vin de Chateau Margaux was bold, powerful and elegent, with many critics picking it as wine of the vintage. It is made from 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. At its core, concentrated black fruits and cherry kirsch, licorice and gravely minerals, with robust mid-palate weight. The ripeness of the fruit allowed for a softer, gentler extraction; the tannins reflect this, already showing polish while adding great structure and grip. This is a bold, elegant, excellent vintage for Margaux.

    2018 Margaux is extremely pure, with a level of refinement that few in the entire world of fine wine can even aspire to. Bright red fruits play at the core of a super-fine and elegant palate that provides one nuance after another. This is a wine that will fill out magnificently in time and is a quintessential example of this famed First Growth.
