The Bordeaux Vintage Report by Château Margaux: The 1899 and 1900, were a fabulous pair of vintages, matched later only by 1928-1929 and 1989-1990. The wine of 1899 was of remarkable quality but was a little overshadowed by 1900, which was right away more powerful and carried a more symbolic vintage year… Château Margaux 1899 is a wine of great harmony, extreme finesse and amazing freshness.

The summer was very dry. The cellar master noted at the time, "Hard summer. Excellent crop despite the drought. Good morning dews." (The picking began 21st September)
