The Story

Since the 17th Century, the first wine of Château Margaux has been recognised as being one of the greatest wines in the entire world. It owes its unique qualities to the genius of its terroir as well as to the passionate work of a succession of generations. It’s a remarkable wine that comes from a combination of characteristics that are only rarely found: finesse, elegance, complexity, density, intensity, length and freshness. Although its tan...

Wine Information

Château Margaux’s 2022 Grand Vin is without doubt as extraordinary as the weather conditions were. Extraordinary firstly because of its concentration: due to the very dry summer, the Cabernet Sauvignon berries were almost 35% smaller than in a normal year. Particular care had to be taken during vinification and the separation of the wine from the solids, during which only the silkiest tannins were extracted. Another less fortunate consequence ...

Vintage 2022

Bordeaux 2022 vintage will stay in the memory of the world of wine as the exceptional vintage which kept a lot of surprises. The year started well with bud break at a normal date, so the frost in early April did not too much damage. The flowering started in mid-May and in optimal conditions.

Written Notes

Chateau Margaux - 92% C. Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and 2% C. Franc. No P. Verdot in the blend this time. 13.1% alcohol. Tiny C. Sauvignon berries were in 2022 35% smaller than in a normal year. Only 40 % of the harvest went into Grand Vin. Lots of concentrated blackcurrants and a strong aroma of tobacco leaves, graphite, and violets. Precise, focused, vibrant, exceptional complexity and great elegance, sophisticated. Monumental finish. A giant moving like a ballerina! 98-100p.

An unexpected Château Margaux with intense purple colour, violet hue and black core. Elegant and persistent nose with multi-layered aroma reminiscent of ripe blackberries and blackcurrants, blackberries and sweet elderberries, complemented by refined spices, vanilla and gingerbread. Backed by fine floral hints, subtle oak with elegant toasting and hints of freshly grated dark chocolate. On the palate silky texture, ripe tannins, juicy fruit quoting the nose, discreet spiciness and well balanced toasting. A Château Margaux with precision and freshness, displaying excellent depth and length. A great vintage.
