1979

Grand vin du Château Margaux

1979
A very fine vintage, whose style has often been compared with the 1978; it seemed to us that when one of them opened up, the other started to close again, and vice versa... But the tannins have always been more tender and soft than the 1978. To be enjoyed without any second thoughts...

Climate

The weather conditions were very similar to those in the 1978 vintage: a wet spring, a hot summer in July and cool in August; and a very fine end to the summer. Once again, the grapes just managed to reach a very good level of ripeness. (The picking began 4th October)
