Estate Notes

Château Margaux 1990 was rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker.

Château Margaux is one of Bordeaux's most strikingly elegant châteaux, approached by a grand tree-lined avenue.  Yet, despite the estate's Bordeaux premier cru status, Margaux has a wonderful family feel, lacking the pretension and snobbery that enshrouds other elite Bordeaux châteaux - a highlight of our annual tasting visits - and we always receive a genuinely warm and friendly welcome. And Margaux's engaging personality is reflected in its wines - renowned for being rich and opulent.

The key behind Margaux's approach is owner Corinne Mentzelopoulos who has led Margaux out of Bordeaux's doldrums both spiritually and in terms of quality, and there seems to be a remarkable team ethic and bond from the vineyard workers right through to the management.


"It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort, it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux."
