Château Margaux Grand Vin Premier Grand Cru Classe 2005
For a Château Margaux, this is an especially rich wine. The dense fruit, super ripe but not overpowering, and the blackberry jam flavours show the richness of the year. There is wood alongside the juiciness and sweet tannins. Of course, it will age, but it’s so delicious to drink now. 12.5% ABV.
The first-growth 2005 Château Margaux (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot), a lavish fragrance of blackcurrants, velvety new saddle leather, spring flowers and spice soars from the glass. The wood is already totally concealed beneath the cascade of fruit in this medium to full-bodied, pure and majestic wine. This concentrated, dense, but nevertheless strikingly elegant, multi-layered wine has a finish of 45+ seconds. It builds incrementally to a crescendo and finale. This is a stunner that can be approached already, but promises to be better in another 5-10 years and last at least 25 or more years. 98+ Points Robert Parker, 98 Points Wine Enthusiast, 97 Points Wine Spectator.
