Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

99 VM

I was unprepared for the stunning showing of the 1959 Château Margaux to the extent that I wager I will never meet another bottle of the same quality. Without doubt this stands as the last great Margaux before the Mentzelopoulos family acquired the First Growth in 1978. The bouquet is entrancing: ineffable delineation and a spellbinding sense of mineralité that appears undiminished by the passing years. After 20-30 minutes I observed oyster shells and sea cave scents percolating through the veneer of black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins fashioned by the finest chisel in the set: incredibly well balanced with hints of kirsch towards the crystalline finish. This is simply the apotheosis of Château Margaux predating Paul Pontallier’s reign. Tasted at the International Business & Wine First Growth Dinner at the Four Seasons. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
