1948

Grand vin du Château Margaux

1948
The wine did not leave much more trace than the weather conditions in which it was born. A magnum recently tasted showed quite a lot of freshness, with a fine, lively bouquet, but on the palate it was quite acid with a dry finish. It should definitely be drunk now.

Climate

1948 was an "average" year with nothing particular standing out. Perhaps it suffered the great disadvantage of being completely overshadowed by great vintages before and after it : 1947 and 1949. It therefore left no specific trace in the memories of wine professionals. (The picking began 23rd September)
