Château Margaux 2002

Because of unfavourable climatic conditions during blossoming, only a very few part of Merlot enters the Château Margaux 2002 vintage blend, wich is therefore highly dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. This atypical, delicate and pure Margaux offers a tender and full-bodied structure with tannins beautifuly integrated during the ageing process.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Performing better from bottle than at any time in cask (which of course is the objective of great winemaking, isn't it?), this wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color in a style somewhat reminiscent of the 1988 but with more power, concentration, and volume. It has a beautifully elegant nose of black fruits intermixed with truffle, flower, and oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, dense, with wonderful precision, freshness, and a long, full-bodied finish with impressive levels of concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030.
