A powerful and weighty wine, even from the lighter 2002 vintage. Château Margaux's white is made with the same attention to detail as the reds, balancing fresh acidity, richness, layers of wood and great sophistication. It will age over 5-10 years. R.V.

However, readers should be aware that neither 2003 nor 2002 was a great vintage for white wines. Normally these wines can be extremely long-lived, lasting 20-25, sometimes 30+ years.

Pretty lemon, dried flowers and dried citrus fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with medium acidity and a lemony, white pepper and fruit finish. Best after 2005. -JS

Pungent aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, quinine, mint and spices. Extremely dense and intensely flavored, with terrific racy acids framing and extending the grapefruit and spice flavors. Uncommonly fresh in the middle and tactile on the back end. Perhaps less rich than the superb 2000 but with even stronger acidity and equal persistence.
