Chateau Margaux Reviews

95 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

Cellar Selection 

“This wine is smooth, ripe with fine tannins and red plum and black-currant fruits that are soft and gentle. Acidity dominates at this stage, supported by the tannins. It brings out the fruit and freshness of the year while also keeping some structure from the high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend.”

94 Pointz James Suckling

“A firm and tight Margaux with structure and elegance. Full-bodied and tight. Lovely silky tannins and layers of texture and flavor. Currant and chocolate undertones.”

91 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine that reflects the vintage, the 2013 Chateau Margaux is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. For the first time, there is no Merlot in the blend. Moreover, only 38% of the crop made it into Margaux, a finesse-styled, classic effort offering notes of spring flowers, blue and red fruits, decent acidity, sweet tannin, and a lovely, round, medium-bodied mouthfeel. The 2013 is not as concentrated as a great vintage, nor does it have the power and length of a top year, but it is a well-made, charming red to enjoy during its first 10-12 years of life.”

91 Pointz Wine Spectator

“This is velvety and suave, with alluring fresh plum, sleek cassis, and warmed raspberry coulis flavors that are nicely melded together, picking up rooibos tea, singed sandalwood, and mineral accents through the lovely finish. Refined and approachable already, but has enough range and length for cellaring. A wine of style.”

90 Pointz Vinous

“The 2013 Margaux is impressive. I could describe the aromas and flavors, but ultimately, the 2013 is really a wine of texture above all else. An intensely floral finish gives lift to the dark red fruit in an understated, classy wine long on finesse. For the first time, Margaux includes no Merlot in 2013. This is a terrific showing. The blend is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.”


90 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar

“Full, deep red. Restrained but very deep aromas of blueberry, redcurrant, and quinine; a real step up in concentration from the Pavillon Rouge. Sharply focused and gripping in the mouth, with enticingly sappy, creamy red and dark berry flavors complicated by minty tobacco and sweet spices. Finishes very broad and long, with suave tannins and a lingering impression of vibrancy.”

“Lovely fragrant nose – floral-sweet, the perfume of Margaux. A textbook Margaux with a hint of Musigny, all delicacy, and purity with an undeniable sense of place.”
