Grand vin du Château Margaux

1868
This wine was very powerful, very tannic and apparently without much finesse. The Bordeaux wine brokers, "Tastet et Lawton", noted that the wines of this vintage had been purchased "most dearly".

Climate

A very early vintage. The cellar master noted, "Picking began on 7th September and finished on 18th of the same month. Excessive heat for nine days."
