2003 Chateau Margaux Bordeaux - 99 Pts!
Since the 17th Century, the first wine of Château Margaux has been recognized as being one of the greatest wines in the entire world.   

 

It owes its unique qualities to the genius of its terroir as well as to the passionate work of a succession of generations. It’s a remarkable wine that comes from a combination of characteristics that are only rarely found: finesse, elegance, complexity, density, intensity, length and freshness. Although its tannic concentration may be exceptional, it’s rare to detect astringency.

The great vintages are distinguished by their formidable ability to move us. The lesser vintages give pleasure to wise enthusiasts. They offer the advantage of evolving very rapidly and, reveal, after a few years, instead of power, this subtlety that is the prerogative of great terroirs.

Château Margaux has an extraordinary ability to evolve. Over the years, it has developed a finesse, an aromatic complexity and a remarkable presence on the palate.

Rating RP99 - Am I being too stingy with the 2003 Chateau Margaux? A wine of extraordinary complexity and intensity it reveals a deep purple color a style not unlike the 1990 Margaux possibly even more concentrated a velvety texture and notes of spring flowers interwoven with camphor melted licorice creme de cassis and pain grille. Not a blockbuster it offers extraordinary intensity as well as a surreal delicacy/lightness. There is riveting freshness to this offering which tips the scales at a lofty for this estate 13.5% alcohol as well as an alluring sweetness and accessibility. It probably will tighten up over the next few years. Nevertheless it is a profound Chateau Margaux that brings to mind a hypothetical blend of the 1982 and 1990. RP
