Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

96 WA / 95 DE / 95 WE / 94+ RP

Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. Here is an example of pure unadulterated Cabernet on the nose with superlative definition and vigour. Crushed stones, a touch of blackberry and black olive, conservative and blue blooded. The palate is full-bodied with sturdy, dense tannins; reserved and masculine with a beguiling tobacco tinged finish that displays superb delineation and focus. Very pure with incredible persistency, this Margaux actually reminds me of a top Lafite! Divine. Tasted January 2010. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

The perfume wafts slowly from the glass. Charcoal softness. Sure-footed, seductive and complex, with plum, damson and bilberry fruits; this is the real deal. Silky tannins and perfect lift. Wonderfully elegant structure; there’s so much to admire here. Drinking Window 2018 - 2035 - Jane Anson, Decanter

This is not a big Château Margaux, its style showing more elegance and discretion. The tannins are soft, although producing a dense web that lies underneath the black currant and plum fruit flavors. It is a wine that envelops the mouth, an edge of firmness over velvet fruit textures. The wine floats away slowly on the close. - RV, Wine Enthusiast

It is worth noting that when the bottled 2006 Chateau Margaux, which appeared closed and less impressive than I had predicted from barrel, was retasted alongside the remarkable 2008, I elevated my score to 94+. It does not possess the size or power of the 2008 or 2005, but the 2006 exhibits impressive density, a deeper color, and the beautifully textured, pure style that is a hallmark of this estate. Moreover, it is relatively precocious, and can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years. - Robert Parker
