1978

Grand vin du Château Margaux

1978
A classic, concentrated, rich, deep wine, with a mature, complex bouquet, displaying a touch of mint. Its very fine tannic structure still leaves a little firmness in the finish, which is fortunately softened by very fine perfumed flavours.

Climate

The time lost through a particularly cool and wet spring was never made up during the summer, but an exceptional Indian summer enabled sufficiently ripe grapes to be picked in perfectly healthy condition. (The picking began on October 9th)
