Description:

Chateau Margaux 2012
Margaux, 1er Cru Classe
"Tasted blind at the 2012 Southwold tasting, the 2012 Ch√Ęteau Margaux has a taut, linear, pencil lead-infused bouquet with pure blackberry and boysenberry scents, an undercurrent of tobacco that surfaces after five minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, a life-affirming sense of balance with well-integrated new oak towards the finish. I concur with Robert Parker that his has become more structured and masculine in bottle, yet there is pedigree here from start to finish, a sense of effortlessness that is seductive. This is a top-class wine from the late Paul Pontallier and his team. Tasted January 2016." N. Martin for TWA, 96 pts. 10/16
6 bottles (owc)
Estimate $2,500-3,250
