    A welcome opening nose of juicy red fruits that carries forth on the palate with sumptuous plumpraspberry, strawberry and violets. Mouthfilling yet superbly elegant and focused, it was delightfully Margaux. It gave the impression of being almost ready to drink now. Except for one member of ourteam who slightly preferred Haut Brion, this was our favourite First Growth this time around. Beautifully buxom. Drink 2011-2022

    Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Chateau Margaux was just missing a little intensity on the nose compared to the other First Growths: scents of incense and iris, blackberry and tobacco, perhaps just missing the floral nature of other vintages. The palate is well balanced with supple black fruit laced with graphite and tobacco, fully matured but clearly with sufficient substance to last another 15-20 years. It is a capable Château Margaux, although frankly it does not put enough distance between itself and its Margaux peers, yapping at its heels. Tasted February 2017. 92/100. Drink 2017-2035

    The elegant 2007 Chateau Margaux's purity, depth of fruit, and overall equilibrium are impressive.A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of spring flowers, black currants, and blackberries, a soft, lush, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and delicacy allied to impressive depth, texture, and length. Already drinkable, it should continue to offer exceptional pleasure for 15 or more years. Drink: 2010 - 2025

    Pretty purplish crimson. More obviously dry and ambitious than the Pavillon Rouge. Some real lift and intention here. Delicate and super charming really aerien and wonderful dry minerally finish. Great lift and delicacy without being at all thin. All the ingredients came from the core of Ch Margaux terroir. Pontallier: ‘You couldn't get any stricter. Pure pebbly soils facing the Gironde.'Very pure indeed yet long. Real class and finesse. Very very delicate. Wonderfully typical of Margaux. ‘Mmm not Wow', says Pontallier. He doesn't expect 2007 to close like 05 will and 2001already has done. Nice dry finish. The low key nature of 2007 seems to suit Ch Margaux. Drink 2012-20.

Producer

Château Margaux

Known as the most elegant and aromatic First Growth due to its Cabernet-friendly, sandy soil, Château Margaux is owned by the Mentzelopoulos family. The estate's vineyard holdings amount to almost 200 acres, though a much smaller percentage is selected for the grand vin to ensure exceptional concentration.

Region

Margaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.
