Amazing aromas of crushed stones and wet soil with fresh mushrooms, then going on to violets and other flowers. Dark fruit, too. Full-bodied, yet agile and fine, with a linear flow of tannins that run through the center...

A wine that you sink into, drink in the aromatics before taking a sip. You can sense the velvety texture from the first moment. There is so much density here, and yet each tannin plays its part with skill, holding the...

Another utterly heavenly wine from this estate is the 2019 Château Margaux, a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot coming from a selection of just 37% of the total production...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2022

Is the 2019 Château Margaux the wine of the vintage? A strong case in its favor could certainly be made. Soaring from the glass with aromas of blackberries, raspberries, rose petals, violets, pencil shavings and vine...

The Wine Independent, May 2023

A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Chateau Margaux is deep garnet-purple in color. Classic scents of cassis, plum preserves, pencil shavings, and wild sage leap...

Vinous, February 2022

The 2019 Château Margaux, bottled in July 2021, is absolutely divine on the nose. It unfurls to reveal exquisitely defined black fruit infused with graphite, Japanese nori and just a hint of potpourri and crushed stone...

Decanter, January 2022

Wonderful aromas on the nose, quite dark and concentrated contrasting the palate which is abundant, juicy and immediately mouthwatering, giving a rush of bright red cherry and strawberry flavour. But it's the texture here...

Wine Enthusiast, October 2022

The structure of the wine is magnificent. With its dense concentration and ripeness, the wine is still just starting out. The wine's texture is rich, firm while also smooth. Drink from 2027. ROGER VOSS

Wine Spectator, January 2022

Pretty gorgeous, with a cashmere feel right from the get-go as pure, unadulterated cassis, plum reduction and blackberry preserve notes sail through. The finish is laced with alluring red and black tea, violet, incense...

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.

Introducing the 2019 Chateau Margaux, a Bordeaux Blend that epitomizes elegance and finesse. With its deep crimson hue and a label that speaks of centuries of winemaking tradition, this wine is a true testament to the mastery of Chateau Margaux.

On the nose, this wine is a symphony of aromas. It opens with an intoxicating bouquet of crushed stones and wet soil, reminiscent of the terroir from which it originates. As you delve deeper, you'll discover notes of fresh mushrooms, violets, and other flowers, adding layers of complexity to the experience. The dark fruit aromas are also present, providing a beautiful contrast to the earthy elements.

Upon tasting, the 2019 Chateau Margaux reveals its true brilliance. The full-bodied palate is simultaneously agile and fine, offering a linear flow of tannins that gracefully traverse the center of the palate. The finesse of these tannins is exceptional, reminiscent of raw silk and constantly evolving with each sip. This wine is cool and energetic, yet reserved, creating a Zen-like experience for the discerning drinker.

The blend of this vintage consists of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, with 37% of the total production being bottled. This careful selection ensures a wine that is impeccably balanced and showcases the best of each grape variety.

Renowned wine critics have bestowed the highest praise upon the 2019 Chateau Margaux. James Suckling, a reputable authority in the industry, awarded it a perfect score of 100 points, describing it as ethereal and recommending it for long-term aging. Jeb Dunnuck also awarded it a perfect score and hailed it as heavenly, with a mouthfeel that is both powerful and incredibly sexy.

Other critics, such as Vinous and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, have also given this wine exceptional scores, with Vinous describing it as divine on the nose and highlighting its medium-bodied palate with filigreed tannins. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate asks whether this could be the wine of the vintage, praising its vibrant core of fruit and its incredibly compelling nature.

The 2019 Chateau Margaux has a bright future ahead. While it can already be enjoyed now, its true potential will be unlocked with a decade or more of cellaring. This wine is a testament to the artistry of Chateau Margaux and a worthy addition to any wine collector's cellar.
