1921 was an especially great year for the wines of Sauternes. For the red wines in general, it was a fine vintage, elegant and well structured since the harvest was of modest volume.
The last bottle tasted in 2011 was a marvel ! The nose was simply enchanting with remarkable complexity and freshness. The palate, perfectly balanced, was all finesse, softness and elegance. This is a perfect example of the inimitable charm of Château Margaux...
Exceptionally high temperatures were recorded during the harvest this year and caused great problems during the vinification in many estates. (The picking began 15th September)
