Grand Vin du Château Margaux

The quality of this wine, from a rather small harvest, has long been judged as just average. The most recent bottle opened in 2011 however was quite surprising. The wine was a pretty color. The nose proved complex and seductive, preceding a very fleshy and powerful palate which perhaps could only be criticized for its slightly tannic finish.



The weather during the summer was unstable, but the harvest was carried out in fine weather. (The picking began 22nd September)
