2019 Château Margaux
The Château Margaux 2019 is seen as the most beautiful wine of Vintage 2019 in Bordeaux. The wine is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. A beautiful ruby red color in the glass with notes of blackberries, raspberries, rose petals, violets, pencil shavings and cedar in the nose. The 2019 Margaux is full-bodied, layered and sensual, with a strikingly vibrant fruit core framed by ripe, powdery tannins and clear acidity, ending with a pungent, mouth-watering salty finish of almost endless duration. Complex, elegant and extremely convincing, this is a fantastic Bordeaux that should certainly not be missing in your fine wine collection. The 2019 Margaux has been awarded the maximum score of 100 points by Parker and Suckling.
