2003 Chateau Margaux Bordeaux Magnum - 99 Pts!
An extraordinary wine and undeniably one of the great wines of the Medoc and qualitatively a wine that towers over what other estates produced in the appellation of Margaux the 2003 Chateau Margaux is made in a style that almost mirrors Lafite Rothschild in 2003. Last year I thought it could represent a hypothetical blend of the 1990 and 1996 but the wine has taken on even more opulence and seductiveness in an almost atypical but still fragrant elegant classic Chateau Margaux personality. Dense ruby/purple to the rim with an extraordinary floral nose intermixed with blackberries cassis mineral licorice and some vanilla the wine is dense opulent voluptuously textured with wonderful sweetness reminiscent of 1982 and 1990 in that sense low acidity but tremendous concentration and an almost seamless integration of all components - alcohol tannin new wood and acidity. This is truly sumptuous stuff that should drink reasonably well young after 4 or 5 years in the bottle and age for 30+ years. Bravo! RP
