With wine production beginning in the 16th century — or possibly even earlier — Château Margaux has a venerable history. It was one of only four wines to acquire first growth status in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification.

The estate has changed hands many times over the course of its turbulent history. It was purchased in 1977 by André Mentzelopoulos, and is currently owned by his daughter, Corinne.

80 hectares of the estate are planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot making up the remaining 5%.

"After a dismal performance in the 1960s and 1970s, Chateau Margaux was resurrected in the 1980s and since has produced a string of near perfect wines. For over 20 years it has been a brilliantly consistent wine of stunning grace, richeness and complexity."

18/20 Dense crimson with less development at the rim than the 1996. Lovely complexity and density - so much more than on the 1996. Mellowing ripe autumn fruit with liquorice and sweetness and some pretty briary tannins on the end. Very exotic but there is sufficient fruit for the tannins here. Long.

95 Medium garnet colour going brick at the rim. The nose is beginning to showing signs of evolution with aromas of leather, game, warm cassis, dried plums, and cloves. Medium to high acidity, medium body and medium to firm, fine tannins support earthy, blackcurrant-preserve fruit. Long finish.

100 Dark colour. Black liquorice, coffee, currants, and black olives. Complex nose. A full-bodied, chewy blockbuster of a wine that is not giving anything at all away. It is like buried treasure still; you have to search for the gold. And it's there. Fabulous.

94 Excellent deep ruby colour. Very complex aromas of blackcurrant, wild plum, violets, minerals, tar, and smoky oak. Dense and supple, with great sweetness of fruit. Doesn't have quite the sheer power of the '96, but the flavors build and build. Substantial tannins are chewier than those of the '96 but hit the palate later. 1986 was the vintage with the highest level of polyphenols ever recorded at this estate, but '95 was the runner-up, according to Pontallier.
