Château Margaux vertical: 1928-2010


Château Margaux.

Château Margaux This has long been a puzzle to me. It has a very large proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in its vineyards—more than any other first growth save Château Latour—and Cabernet often dominates the wine.

The Cabernet content of the vintages 2000 and 2010 is 90%. Yet despite the preponderance of this grape, the word that springs most readily to mind in describing the wines of this château is ‘finesse’.
