  • 97 Gilbert & Gaillard

    Subtle nose, fresh fruit, a floral tone and a mineral touch. Ample, full palate that is delicate yet well-structured. The oak is melted and fruit enjoys good exposure. Long, racy finish infused with graphite notes and mild spices. Remarkable. (Apr 2013)

  • 96 Robert Parker - Wine Advocate

    The 2012 Château Margaux is showing much differently from bottle than it did from cask. Seemingly much fuller and richer, it has a dense ruby/purple color, representing a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot. It possesses hints of spring flowers intermixed with blueberries, blackberries and cassis fruit, moderate tannin, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a long, structured finish. This 2012 was charming, up-front and precociously styled from barrel, but in bottle it is more masculine, dense and rich. ..This is a great effort from Château Margaux, and should handsomely repay those who buy it.

  • 93 Asian Palate (Jeannie Cho Lee MW)

    Lovely, very typical Chateau Margaux nose – violets and jasmine along with blackberry, cassis and cedar. Very approachable with silky texture and good density. The perfume surfaces after about 10 minutes in the glass. This is a classic, cool vintage for Margaux with 13% alcohol and onderful freshness. The attractive, supple texture will make it approachable when young but it will age easily for a few decades. Very long finish. 87% of the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon. (5/15/2013)
