Château Margaux


2005 Château Margaux 1er Cru Classé AOC, Château Margaux

Tom Cannavan: Jan 2007 (2007) Paul Pontellier was very upbeat about his 2005, which is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, because "In really great vintages the Cabernet Sauvignon from our gravel soils is extraordinary. Most of our Merlot cannot marry with it. We had only one small parcel that we could use; so only 37% of our production is Margaux this year. This is the wine I have always dreamed of making at Margaux - incredibly powerful and intense, yet also light and elegant." He has succeeded in that, with a real density at this stage that is pretty impenetrable at first (more so than Latour) and such a massive framework behind the nose of tannins and fruit and searing acidity, yet there is finesse and a real sense of purity and focus. This is for the long haul, but is spectacular.
