Chateau Margaux 1998
|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Bordeaux Blend|
The 1998 Margaux's color is a dense ruby/purple. The wine is tannic and austere, but elegant, with notes of asphalt, blackberries, acacia flowers, and sweet, toasty oak. Subtle, rich, nicely-textured, and medium-bodied, it is built for the long haul.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Gorgeous aromas of berry, currant and exotic spices, especially cinnamon. Medium- to full-bodied, with layers of silky tannins and ripe berry and raspberry on the palate. An outstanding Margaux.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
