Château Margaux 2016

A red wine from Margaux with an exceptionally complex and strong character

Chateau Margaux is a Classified First Growth in the Margaux appellation. The terroir is typical of the region and has Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grape varieties planted. 2016 proves to be a historical and miraculous vintage. Temperatures in winter were so mild, that the soil was able to build reserves for the beginning of the maturation cycle. Spring was quite cool. Flowering and the appearance of fruit occurred in the beginning of June. The exceptionally dry summer gave way to unexpected ripening just before the rain in mid-September. This relief allowed the vines to mature perfectly throughout October. This splendid finish to the growing season produced gourmet fruit, which gave the wine a silky texture.

2016 produced a powerful wine that is sweet thanks to its ripe tannins. The balance is perfect between acidity and alcohol. Chateau Margaux 2016 is not as the 2009 and 2010 vintages. It is similar to the 2005 vintage. A pure wine with racy tannins that will go down as an exceptional vintage thanks to its complex character.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Château Margaux (blended of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot) sashays out of the glass with glamorous red currants, candied violets, kirsch and crushed blackcurrants scents followed by notions of tilled black soil, forest floor, cast iron pan and cigar box with subtle wafts of lavender and oolong tea. Medium-bodied, mineral laced accents hover over the palate with an ethereal sensation of weightlessness, yet it is super intense with layers of red and black flavors supported by a firm texture of silt-fine tannins, finishing wonderfully fragrant and incredibly long.
