Grand vin du Château Margaux
At last, a very good vintage ! The only one in the 1930s… Château Margaux 1934 is still superb. It displays a deep, dense colour and a fine, fresh, complex bouquet. On the palate, it is powerful and rich with tannins coming to the fore, but drying a little in the finish. The quality of the bottles is now inconsistent, but most of the magnums are very good. It is obviously a wine to drink now, which in the future can only lose the wonderful qualities it has now.
The hot and dry summer was followed by excellent weather conditions during the whole of the harvest and allowed this bumper crop to reach an excellent level of ripeness. (The picking began 14th September)
