The 2019 Château Margaux has a remarkable, soaring nose of wild flowers, dark fruit, and crushed rocks. The palate is so silky and sensuous, with stunning purity of fruit. It’s a cliché, but this has ‘the iron fist in a velvet glove’ character that so many seek in the very best vintages of Margaux. This is not to be missed.
The 2019 Château Margaux, like many other top names, was tasted in 12-hour intervals after opening. Like the Pavillon Rouge, it is tightly-wound on the nose initially and it is really only after 12-hours that it begins to motor, revealing enticing scents of blackberry, briary, seaweed and crushed stone, perhaps less florality, less violet-inspired aromas compared to previous vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with very lithe tannins that disguise the considerable backbone of this First Growth. This is imbued with a sense of linearity and focus, a strictness that gradually gives way to more sensuality. It is a beautifully proportioned Château Margaux, somehow "effortless", fanning out nonchalantly with residues of white pepper and fresh tobacco on the finish. Outstanding.
