Notes about product
The 2014 vintage had a wet and mild winter without any significant cold spells. Spring was fairly normal and flowering occurred on time and in favorable conditions. August was cool and the low temperatures delayed version. September brought heat and good weather which allowed the grapes to ripen perfectly.
The Margaux du Château Margaux 2014 has benefited enormously from the outstanding selection made for this vintage. The Pavillon Rouge and Château Margaux assemblages make up just 60% of the harvest in 2014 which allowed the Margaux du Château Margaux to be enhanced by parcels previously used for Pavillon Rouge. The result is one of the finest vintages of this wine to date.
This wine has an immediate freshness, charm and elegance on the palate. The delicate, floral and fruity nose gives way to a gentle and smooth mouthfeel and finishes on a tighter note - a reminder that this is a concentrated wine with a bright future ahead of it.
