Margaux is one of five precocious castles and has been listed as a premium wine since 1855. Chateau Margaux is also the only Bordeaux wine named after its name. The wine Pavillon Blanc cannot be sold as Margaux, so it bears the name of the Bordeaux region. I was impressed by this delicious white wine. It is one of the deepest, richest, and most complex Bordeaux blank wines ever produced by Château Margot.
Deep aromas of red fruits are complemented by notes of cocoa butter on a full and rounded nose. The red fruits on the nose are covered with a rich aroma of chocolate and cocoa butter.
All of the following 2020 Margaux wines were tasted in my home office as a non-blind person. The taste of this wine is rich, full, and has firm depth, ending with layers of rich, silky, black, red, and blue fruits, and a delicious structure. This wine is medium-bodied, soft, elegant, fresh, and already delicious, and finally presents a sweet, silky, smooth deep red fruit flavor. From there, this wine is soft and smooth, round and firm, with layers of sweet ripe fruit, spices, and earthy notes.
Give it at least another 5 years, because it is just a child of the great wine Margot. It is very fruity, with subtle and vibrant notes of cherry, ripe blackberry, and oak notes that are already very well integrated for a wine that is still aged in barrels, which proves that the concentration of the wines is strong. The balance of wines is transformed into exceptional refinement for a full-bodied harvest with great potential. Less alcoholic than in 2018 and 2015 and showing good freshness, many wines, although not as full, have more freshness, duration and clarity.
Some early-season frosts limited yields elsewhere, but in Margot, crop losses were minimal, and white wine production (22 hl/ha) was more or less in line with all other crops; however, this wine will inevitably have a juicier mouthfeel and greater texture than is usually the case with this wine, which sometimes, if not often, tends to get better reviews and higher ratings than it should because of the name that it wears. …
Jane Anson awarded Margaux 2020 99 after tasting it en primeur, naming it her vintage Left Bank in her 2020 Bordeaux verdict. Margot has been known as a top-tier wine since 1855 when it was recognized as one of the first producers and was the only company to receive a 20/20 rating.

On the palate, red currant fruits have a pleasant uplifted aroma due to their good acidity. The alcohol is balanced and delicate, in the aftertaste, you can feel raspberries with hints of cedar. The taste of red fruits is elegant and soft, with delicate spices, hard and delicate tannins, and a pleasant freshness that makes your mouth water. The elegant blackcurrant fruit tastes soft, soft, and ripe, with rounded edges.
This wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Although the estate is known for its (very expensive) Gran wines, it also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, and a third Margaux de Château Margaux. His next online wine auctions, Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux, is a dry white wine that does not comply with Margaux’s directives.

Overall, this 20-year vertical tasting demonstrates how the quality of Chateau du Tertre wines has steadily improved over past vintages, despite yield variations.
Today it is difficult to find the best wine for the money in Margot’s increasingly expensive appellation. Matthew O’connell, investment manager of a trader at Bordeaux Index, said the careful distribution of the 2020 version of Margaux was probably clearly considered one of the vintage wines and more balanced in price than many other versions. The third growth of 2020 Margaux wine was sold by British traders at 2880 PS for a box of 12 bottles in bonds, which made it more expensive than the current price for 2019 (98 points), but cheaper than the 2018 harvest by 100 points, Liv-ex figures are shown …
The Wine Lister think tank announced the release of Margaux 2020: Although there is not much room for price maneuver compared with the past few years, the praise of all critics in 2020 should encourage Bordeaux en primeur buyers to use their distribution advantages to grow, if they are lucky enough to have one.

Below you will find detailed reviews and ratings of the last 20 castle vintages. Flagship wines are versatile, silky, elegant, concentrated, rich, and sensual. And while Kenwood’s reputation for quality and consistency at an affordable price is worthy of applause, keep in mind that the premium Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon wines, made from grapes from the various Sonoma estates (which change with each vintage), are wines that are rated with the best that the state has to offer.

Chateau Margaux was one of the first estates to take drastic measures to combat the problem of counterfeit wines. But when wine merchant William Sokolin brought the bottle to Margot’s dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York in 1989, the waiter knocked over the bottle, destroying its contents. Since he was a glassblower, it is believed that some Château du Tertre wines were bottled in glass as early as the 1700s, which was extremely rare at the time. More than 160 years later, he prudently took the radical steps needed in just three years to bring Château Margaux back to the splendor it had lost during the long Bordeaux wine crisis.
In 1810, Marquis de la Coronilla, the new owner of Margaux, was the first owner of the land since it was confiscated by the state during the French Revolution, and hired architect Louis Combes to build this iconic castle and wine cellar. Like many other vintage wines from 2001, this Palmer is a classic Margot. Intense and concentrated, the richness of the high percentage of Merlot in the Palmer blend is evident throughout, while Cabernet Sauvignon gives a fresh boost to the finish. The wine is not very concentrated, and even if it holds well, the aftertaste can be longer.
