WE 93
Wine Enthusiast, June 2007
A powerfully ripe wine, with pure black currant flavors over soft, polished tannins. The wood balance is exemplary, offering just the right lift. Touches of cinnamon and vanilla give an extra dimension.

The 2004 vintage is definitely one of the ups, the wine showing the breed of a second growth in a combination of delicacy, reserve and tremendous length of flavor. The power of the fruit carries through into a riff on black tobacco, violet perfume and minerals juicing up from under the tongue. The freshness of the tannin will hold this as it ages for a decade or more. collapse

Medium-bodied and elegantly style in the mouth, it has lovely freshness and an earthy core with well-played chewy tannins and a good, long finish. The blend this year is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, harvested between September 30 and October 16 at an average yield of 52 hectoliters per hectare. It was aged for 18 months in French oak, 50% new. The alcohol is 13%. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse

It has a deep garnet core with just the first signs of maturation on the rim. The nose is beginning to open up and welcome secondary aromas: hints of warm gravel and sandalwood infuse the black fruits that are very expressive considering the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. Like many 2004s, this Margaux cannot escape the feeling of conservatism that seems to be the leitmotif of this growing season. Yet it retains fine balance, fresh in the mouth with hints of brine and spice towards the structured, ever so slightly austere finish. Tasted at the Rauzan-Ségla vertical at the château. -- Neal Martin collapse

Wine Spectator, March 2007
Very pretty aromas of blackberry and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a delightful finish. Not a big wine, but pretty and attractive. Hard not to drink now. Best after 2009. 12,500 cases made. — JS

This is a good, fairly old-school, juicy and well balanced Margaux, with lots to enjoy but not as precise as the more recent vintages. There's an almost tarry richness through the mid-palate, although a slight medicinal edge suggests possible brett. Harvested between 30 September to 16 October. 52hl/ha yield. 2% Cabernet Franc rounds out the blend. 50% new oak. (Drink between 2019-2038) collapse
