Lunch at Château Margaux



I thought I had published this already, but I haven't. I have only published on one of the wines that was served under this magnificent experience. During the harvest of the 2012 vintage, we had a private lunch in the courtyard of Château Margaux.



2009 Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux:
Bright ruby. Floral, cassis, leather, layered and subdued nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, superb texture and structure, lovely balance, refined and long. 92



2009 Château Margaux: 
Ruby. Such layers, so seductive, so complex, refined, nuanced, has everything. Floral and scented. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, layered and such balance, feels perfect even if extremelly young. Complete and extreme length. 100



2011 Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux:
Pale lemon yellow. Intense citrus, minerals, some vanilla. Very transparent feel. Layered. Fresh acidity, superb balance, refined and mouthwatering, superb length. 93



2004 Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux:
Ruby. Cassis, bell peppers and scented. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, elegant palate, refreshing and elegant texture, savory and long. 90



1999 Château Margaux:
Ruby. Layered, scented, floral, cassis, leather, anise and again such an open and seductive nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, superb texture and structure, velvety, fresh and lively, long. Always a favorite of mine. 94
