Chateau Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe, Margaux, Bordeaux, France, 2006 

Chateau Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe 2006. Perhaps one of the most consistent of the 1st growths. Rigorous selection again, only 33% of the crop used in the grand vin, 90% Cabernet Sauvignon (highest ever.) 4% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. A wine of grand structure and nobility - one of the wines of the vintage. Drink 2016

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château Margaux has a sense of airiness and wonderful definition on the nose: wild strawberry, redcurrant, cedar and crushed roses soaring from the glass, but it never strives for the opulence of say the 2006 Château Palmer. The palate is very well balanced with fine and quite firm tannin in the mouth. This seems to be approaching its plateau after a decade. While not a powerful or ostentatious Château Margaux, it epitomizes understatement and refinement in a similar vein to Lafite-Rothschild. It is only after the wine has been swallowed that you appreciate its qualities and you feel urged to go back for another sip."

94/100 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, May 2016

"Mid crimson. Very pretty evolution with that dunked biscuity note of oak/Cabernet fusion. Hugely aromatic. Lovely supple texture with real lift but the flavour can be found elsewhere! Fine and lifted. Fine tannins almost dissipated. Relatively forward for a first."

17.5+/20 points, Jancis Robinson,, March 2016
