CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2002 (2) 92 WS 93 WA CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2003 (2) 95 WS 98 WA CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2004 (2)


CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2002 (2) MARGAUX. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ 1 SCUFFED LABEL PERFORMING BETTER FROM BOTTLE THAN AT ANY TIME IN CASK (WHICH OF COURSE IS THE OBJECTIVE OF GREAT WINEMAKING, ISN’T IT?), THIS WINE REVEALS A DENSE RUBY/PURPLE COLOR IN A STYLE SOMEWHAT REMINISCENT OF THE 1988 BUT WITH MORE POWER, CONCENTRATION, AND VOLUME. IT HAS A BEAUTIFULLY ELEGANT NOSE OF BLACK FRUITS INTERMIXED WITH TRUFFLE, FLOWER, AND OAK. THE WINE IS MEDIUM TO FULL-BODIED, DENSE, WITH WONDERFUL PRECISION, FRESHNESS, AND A LONG, FULL-BODIED FINISH WITH IMPRESSIVE LEVELS OF CONCENTRATION. ANTICIPATED MATURITY: 2010-2030. 92 WS 93 WA CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2003 (2) MARGAUX. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ THIS WAS THE FINEST PERFORMANCE BY THIS WINE THAT I HAVE SEEN SINCE IT WAS RELEASED. I DID NOT EXPECT THE 2003 CHATEAU MARGAUX TO SHOW THIS WELL IN A VINTAGE WHERE THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE MEDOC WAS CLEARLY LESS IMPRESSIVE THAN THE NORTH. HOWEVER, IT IS A BEAUTIFUL, DARK PLUM/PURPLE-TINGED EFFORT WITH SENSATIONAL AROMATICS, A FULL-BODIED MOUTHFEEL, AND A YOUTHFULNESS, PRECISION AND FRESHNESS THAT BELIE WHAT ONE GENERALLY ASSOCIATES WITH THIS VINTAGE. IT CAN BE DRUNK NOW AND OVER THE NEXT 15-20 YEARS. KUDOS TO CHATEAU MARGAUX. 95 WS 98 WA CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2004 (2) MARGAUX. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ 1 SCUFFED LABEL 6 BTS. PER LOT $3,200 - $3,700
