The purity of cabernet sauvignon fruit is what impresses here. Subtle and energetic plum and currant aromas follow through to a gorgeously harmonized palate of wonderful fruit and an ultra-long finish. Current bush and...

The Wine Independent, March 2024

The 2014 Chateau Margaux is deep garnet-brick in color. Scents of warm cassis, black cherries, and dried mulberries pop from the glass, with hints of iron ore and forest floor plus a waft of candied violets. The...

Wine Enthusiast, April 2017

There is a sense of pure juicy black-currant fruit that shoots through this great wine. With tannins that are firm while not a jot too much, the wine is crisp, packed with fruit and set for many years of aging. It is...

Showing more aromatic complexity after just a few additional months in bottle, truffle, herbs, cedar, lead pencil, and dark, red fruits are impossible to avoid. Medium full bodied, with soft, polished tannins, elegant...

Decanter, April 2015

Striking black fruits from 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, yet restrained – even severe – with less charm and more firmness; the opposite of showy. With great natural density and tannins that do not overwhelm, this is a classical...

Wine Spectator, March 2017

This is solidly packed, with layers of warm fig bread, plum compote and black currant preserves, carried by a silky yet substantial structure. As the fruit plays out, the anise, black tea and singed alder notes in the...

Vinous, March 2024

The 2014 Château Margaux has a well-defined bouquet with cedar-infused black fruit, undergrowth and touches of brown spice. A little more precision than the Haut-Brion. The palate is medium-bodied with sapid black fruit...

Chateau Margaux is a famous wine estate in the Medoc region, which along with Lafite, Latour and Haut Brion, was rated a First Growth in the original 1855 Bordeaux Classification. It covers 262 hectares, of which 82 hectares are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, and 12 hectares to Sauvignon Blanc.

In the 12th century, the property was called “La Mothe de Margaux” (the Margaux mound) and by the 16th century, wine was being produced at the estate. In 1705, the London Gazette advertised the first auction of 230 barrels of “Margose” and the 1771 vintage was the first “claret” to appear in a Christie’s catalogue. Indeed one of America’s Founding Fathers and vintner in his own right, Thomas Jefferson, visited this great estate in the late 18th century and declared it to be a vineyard of “first quality”. When Bertrand Douat, Marquis de la Colonilla, acquired the estate, he built the chateau that is often nicknamed the “Versailles of the Medoc”, a rare example of the neo-palladian style in France.

Andre Mentzelopoulos purchased the property in 1977, investing heavily in the estate and a program of improvements. Since his death in 1980, the property has been run by his daughter Corinne who continued his work in restoring the chateau to its former glory.

Since the 17th Century, the grand vin of Chateau Margaux has been recognized as one of the greatest wines in the entire world. It owes its unique qualities to the genius of its terroir as well as to the passionate work of a succession of generations. It’s a remarkable wine that comes from a combination of characteristics that are only rarely found: finesse, elegance, complexity, density, intensity, length and freshness. Although its tannic concentration may be exceptional, it’s rare to detect astringency.

The great vintages are distinguished by their formidable ability to move us, while the lesser vintages give pleasure to wine enthusiasts. Chateau Margaux has an extraordinary ability to evolve with age, developing finesse, aromatic aromatic complexity, and a remarkable presence on the palate.

The 2014 Chateau Margaux is a remarkable Bordeaux Blend that represents the epitome of elegance and finesse. Hailing from the renowned Margaux region of Bordeaux, France, this red wine is a testament to the exceptional craftsmanship of Chateau Margaux.

In the glass, the wine exhibits a deep, ruby red color that is vibrant and enticing. The nose is greeted with a sense of pure, juicy black-currant fruit that shoots through the senses. There is an underlying hint of violets that adds a touch of floral complexity to the aromatic profile. The wine exudes a sense of energy and vitality, with each swirl of the glass revealing new layers of complexity.

On the palate, the 2014 Chateau Margaux showcases a beautifully structured tannin that is firm but never overwhelming. The wine is crisp and packed with fruit, creating a harmonious balance between power and finesse. The flavors of plum and currant dance on the palate, accompanied by subtle notes of current bush and light earth. The finish is ultra-long, leaving a lasting impression that lasts for minutes.

This wine has received high praise from esteemed critics, with Wine Enthusiast awarding it a score of 97 points. Wine Spectator also lauds its solid structure and remarkable range of flavors, giving it a score of 95 points. James Suckling describes the purity of the cabernet sauvignon fruit as impressive, while Robert Parker's Wine Advocate praises its wonderful mineral tension and spiciness.

The 2014 Chateau Margaux is a wine that is built to age gracefully. While it can be enjoyed now, it is recommended to give it at least a decade of cellaring to fully appreciate its long-term potential. This wine is a true gem of the Margaux region and is sure to delight any wine connoisseur.
