Chateau Margaux 1991
Margaux's 1991 is a candidate for "wine of the vintage." It reveals a deep ruby color, and a tight but promising nose of rich cassis, licorice, and toasty new oak. Dense, medium to full-bodied, with plenty of depth, it possesses moderate tannin and a long, rich finish. Anticipated maturity: 1996-2007. A bigger, more powerful wine than Margaux's 1987, it is close in quality to the estate's 1988.
Winespectator / James Suckling (85)
A little disappointing, but a pretty wine to smell and taste. Impressive fruit and wood accented by silky tannins, but slightly dry and herbaceous on the finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
