Grand Vin du Château Margaux

Château Margaux 1952 has kept an astonishing freshness. Its bouquet is very distinct, very fine, with a touch of austerity. On the palate, it is first silky and tender, and then slightly firm tannins come through in the finish. It is still a very fine wine, that can be kept a few years more without risk.

(September 2002)



Everything seemed to point towards an outstanding year, since the months of June, July and August had been hot and dry. Unfortunately, September was cold and very rainy and prevented the grapes from reaching an excellent ripeness level. (The picking began 15th September)
