Jean-Marc Quarin
(10-1995) Red. Dark. Average intensity. Evolved. Net. Average intensity. Pretty late. Fruity and floral. Touch a little vegetal. Soft attack, developing on a structure of straight form to the touch of fine mouth. The evolution is sweet in the middle of the mouth then will stiffen in the final, on austere tannins even if they are aromatic. Good persistence. This wine can be tasted, but will still be kept. No doubt it will always be lacking in the tannin coating of maturity better accomplished and that it will keep a slight dryness.

Château informations

A privilege to bear the name of its appellation Margaux, for Chateau Margaux there is no doubt ample justification.

For several centuries this Premier Cru Classé has expressed the highest degree of quality of exceptional terroir patiently assembled by several generations of owners. Maintained and harvested exclusively by hand with extreme care, the 78 hectares of vines (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) derive their wealth deep in the soil which is clayey gravelly and particularly dense and thick. The fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, follows 18 to 24 months in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among Bordeaux, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals the delicate taste and opulence, depth and complexity, and exudes a rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruit, suspended by tight tannins that require patient aging before the wine fully expresses itself. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge de Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc de Château Margaux.
