Chateau Margaux

Chateau Margaux

Das Château Margaux verfügt über eines der besten Terroirs des Médoc. Die Parzellen, auf denen der Château Margaux erzeugt wird, sind im Wesentlichen dieselben wie schon 1855. Sie befinden sich ausschließlich in der Gemeinde Margaux und sind teilweise leicht zur Gironde geneigt. Der Boden besteht aus einer 4 bis 11 m tiefen, homogenen Schicht mittlerer bis feiner Kiesel, die in der Günz-Eiszeit von der Garonne abgelagert wurden. Er ist verhältnismäßig kalkhaltig und besitzt einen hervorragenden Wasserabzug. Die Weinreben werden dadurch zu einer besonders tiefen Wurzelbildung gezwungen.

Château Margaux verfügt über 265 ha Grundbesitz; die Anbaufläche für Wein beträgt insgesamt 99 ha. Davon sind 87 ha für den Rotwein reserviert. Der Anteil des Cabernet Sauvignon liegt bei 75 %, 20 % entfallen auf Merlot, den Rest teilen sich Cabernet Franc und Petit Verdot. 12 ha sind mit Sauvignon Blanc bestockt, hieraus wird der Weißwein Pavillon Blanc gekeltert.

Die Rotweinbereitung folgt der Tradition des Bordeaux: Drei Wochen auf der Maische in großen Holzbottichen, anschließend 18 bis 24 Monate Ausbau in neuen Eichenfässern. Der Château Margaux wird ungefiltert abgefüllt. In den Grand Vin kommen dabei lediglich zwischen 40 und 60 % des Rotweines. Der Rest, vor allem der Ertrag junger Rebanlagen, wird unter dem Zweitetikett Pavillon Rouge verkauft.

Château Margaux wird vom Önologen Jacques Boissenot sowie dessen Sohn Eric begleitet und beraten.

Das Château Margaux erzeugt einen der teuersten Rotweine der Welt. Wie allgemein bei den Weinen von Margaux, deren unbestrittene Spitze er darstellt, stehen Bukett und Finesse im Vordergrund. Seiner Langlebigkeit tut dies aber keinen Abbruch; zur vollen Entfaltung benötigt er auch in kleineren Jahrgängen meist über zehn Jahre. Er legt dabei sogar an Körper zu.

Das Lagerpotenzial reicht aber noch weit darüber hinaus, wie der bekannte Weinautor Michael Broadbent bezeugt: Er gab einem 1987 verkosteten 1787er (!) Château Margaux seine Höchstbewertung von fünf Sternen:

    „Bukett […] mit großer Reichhaltigkeit und Tiefe. […] mit einem sehr lebhaften, vollen Geschmack, perfekt in Gewicht, Länge und Abgang.“

    – Michael Broadbent: Broadbent's Weinnotizen

Als größte Jahrgänge der jüngeren Zeit gelten 1982, 1983, 1986, 1990, 1996, 2000 und 2005. Der Chateau Margaux-Rotwein von 1986 und der 1990er haben (Stand 2006) je einen Marktwert von ca. 500 Euro per Normalflasche. Andere, kleinere Jahrgänge sind preiswerter (1999er für ca. 165 Euro), andere jedoch noch weitaus teurer: der 1900er wird als nachweislich gut gelagerte Flasche für ca. 8.000 bis 10.000 Euro gehandelt.

Robert Parker bewertet den Jahrgang 2012 mit 95 von 100 Punkten, Wein enthält Sulfide

The 2012 Château Margaux is showing much differently from bottle than it did from cask. Seemingly much fuller and richer, it has a dense ruby/purple color, representing a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot, as well as only 33% of their harvest. It possesses hints of spring flowers intermixed with blueberries, blackberries and cassis fruit, moderate tannin, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a long, structured finish. This 2012 was charming, up-front and precociously styled from barrel, but in bottle it is more masculine, dense and rich. This wine needs a good 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep well for 25 or more years. This is a great effort from Château Margaux, and should handsomely repay those who buy it. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2040.

Score: 95 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (218), April 2015

This quintessentially finesse-styled Margaux exhibits notes of pure black currants, spring flowers, graphite and forest floor. With supple tannins and medium body, this pretty, stylish effort reminds me of the 2001 or perhaps a modern day, improved version of their 1979. The lovely 2012 should be drinkable in 4-5 years and last for two decades.

Only about one-third of the total production made it into the 2012 Chateau Margaux, which is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Like many Medoc first-growths in this vintage, this estate-s aim was to make an elegant, supple-styled 2012 that emphasized the fruit, charm and delicacy of this terroir rather than pushing extraction and going for a powerhouse, which would have been difficult to produce in a vintage like 2012. The natural alcohol is 13%

Score: 92/94 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (206), April 2013

Tasted blind at the 2012 Southwold tasting, the 2012 Château 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.

Score: 96 Neal Martin, RobertParker.com (227), October 2016

Wonderful aromas of flowers such as roses, violets, strawberries and a hints of wet earth. Wet stones as well. Full to medium body, very firm tannins and a long, racy finish. Minerals and chalk on the aftertaste. Needs three to five years to soften. Better in 2020.

Score: 94 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2015

This is tannic and rich on the finish. Lacks a bit on the center palate, but full and very pretty fruit. Long finish. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, 9% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot.

Score: 93/94 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2013

The 2012 Margaux is beautifully polished and suave in the glass, with pliant fruit and plenty of finesse, all in a classic, mid-weight Margaux style. Inward and tightly wound, the 2012 is clearly holding back much of its potential. The 2012 has a stony, mineral-infused energy that is going to require at least a few more years in bottle to fully unwind, while the 100% new oak is a bit pronounced at this early stage. Grilled herbs, smoke, graphite and sage add further nuances on the savory, delineated finish. Drink 2022 - 2042.

Score: 94+ Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2016

Heady and very much in the same style as the Pavillon but a bit more emphatic. Grand - not in a monumental sense because there is nothing big about this. Very discreet and I think the two wines are closer together than usual.

Ribert Parker bewertet den Jahrgang 2013 mit 94 von 100 Punkten,

Wein enthält Sulfide

A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine that reflects the vintage, the 2013 Chateau Margaux is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. For the first time, there is no Merlot in the blend. Moreover, only 38% of the crop made it into Margaux, a finesse-styled, classic effort offering notes of spring flowers, blue and red fruits, decent acidity, sweet tannin, and a lovely, round, medium-bodied mouthfeel. The 2013 is not as concentrated as a great vintage, nor does it have the power and length of a top year, but it is a well-made, charming red to enjoy during its first 10-12 years of life.

Score: 88/90 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (#214), August 2014

The 2013 Château Margaux has an attractive bouquet that compared to fellow recent vintages appears earthy in style (as it appeared in barrel), offering a mixture of black and red fruit, bay leaf and cedar. The Cabernet Sauvignon comes through strongly - no surprise given that there is 97% of the final blend! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a pleasing seam of acidity. It is not the greatest Château Margaux that the late Paul Pontallier ever made, but it is commendable for the vintage and there is a sense of harmony and composure towards the finish with hints of black pepper and mint lingering on the aftertaste. Enjoy this over the next 15 years, though I am not sure it has the substance to warrant maturation for a longer period.

Score: 91 Neal Martin, RobertParker.com (227), October 2016

The Château Margaux is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot with no Merlot this year due to coulure and was picked between 30 September and 11 October. It represents 38% of the total harvest. It has a very masculine slightly earthy bouquet, a little more introverted than previous vintages, opening with time to reveal its trademark dried violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, silky smooth on the entry. There is not a huge weight in the mouth but it glides or rather flows nicely. It is a seductive Margaux, not a long-term wine for the estate but a success considering the vintage. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 91/93 Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, April 2014

A firm and tight Margaux with structure and elegance. Full bodied and tight. Lovely silky tannins and layers of texture and flavor. Currant and chocolate undertones. 94% cabernet sauvignon, the rest cabernet franc and petit verdot. Drink in 2018.

Score: 94 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2016

Spectacular for the vintage. This is a wine that I want to buy. The aromas are like rose petals and perfume. Speechless. Palate is full body, yet refined and beautiful with perfectly polished tannins. It's wonderfully balanced. 99% cabernet sauvignon, 1% petit verdot.

Score: 94/95 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2014

The 2013 Margaux is impressive. I could describe the aromas and flavors, but ultimately, the 2013 is really a wine of texture above all else. An intensely floral finish gives lift to the dark red fruit in an understated, classy wine long on finesse. For the first time, Margaux includes no Merlot in 2013. This is a terrific showing. The blend is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
James Suckling
The purity of cabernet sauvignon fruit is what impresses here. Subtle and energetic plum and currant aromas follow through to a gorgeously harmonized palate of wonderful fruit and an ultra-long finish. Current bush and light earth adds to the complexity. Lasts for minutes. Drink in 2022.
WE 97
Wine Enthusiast
There is a sense of pure juicy black-currant fruit that shoots through this great wine. With tannins that are firm while not a jot too much, the wine is crisp, packed with fruit and set for many years of aging. It is beautiful, fruity and intensely structured. Drink from 2027. Cellar Selection
D 95
Decanter
Striking black fruits from 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, yet restrained – even severe – with less charm and more firmness; the opposite of showy. With great natural density and tannins that do not overwhelm, this is a classical Château Margaux that will need time to fully open up. Drinking Window 2022 - 2045
WS 95
Wine Spectator
This is solidly packed, with layers of warm fig bread, plum compote and black currant preserves, carried by a silky yet substantial structure. As the fruit plays out, the anise, black tea and singed alder notes in the background come into clearer focus, giving this remarkable range. Everything glides beautifully through the suave, gently toasty finish. Best from 2020 through 2035.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Château Margaux represents 36% of the year’s total production and is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Affording the glass five to ten minutes to open, the aromatics are very similar to those expressed out of barrel, those dark cherries and violets, tightly wound at first but unfurling beautifully and seemingly with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin and it appears to have fomented a little more finesse during its élevage. There is wonderful mineral tension and dash of spiciness on the persistent finish. There remains some tightness here, the implication that this is a Château Margaux determined to give long-term pleasure. Therefore, do not be afraid to give it a decade in the cellar.

Chateau Margaux 2015, Bewertung 100 von 100 Parker Punkte, Wein enthält Sulfide

Die klimatischen Bedingungen des Jahres 2015 waren charakteristisch für große Jahrgänge wie auch 2005, 2009 oder 2010. Die Lese der roten Trauben fand bei Château Margaux zwischen dem 18. September und dem 6. Oktober statt. Die kleinen Beeren und ihr dicke Beerenhaut erlaubten eine hohe Tanninenkonzentration im Wein. 2015 ist ein historisches Jahr, im besonderen Sinne für Château Margaux, da sie den 200-jährigen Geburtstag der Erbauung ihres Anwesens aus 1815 feierten und weil sie die neuen Räumlichkeiten einweihten, die von Norman Foster erbaut wurden. Man kann sich vorstellen, dass das Team von Château Margaux alles dafür tat, dass 2015 ein großer Jahrgang wird! Wenn man die Assemblage dieses Jahrganges betrachtet, erfährt man, dass Margaux für den Hauptwein nur 35% ihres gesamten Ertrages nutzten, was ein Rekord an strikter Auswahl in einem Jahrgang von solchem Niveau ist. Wie gewöhnlich ist es der Cabernet Sauvignon, der den Hauptteil einnimt mit 87%. Zu seiner üblichen Konzentration und Finesse hat er dieses Jahr eine außergewöhnliche Kraft und Durchdringlichkeit. 8% der Assemblage vertritt der Merlot, 3% der Cabernet Franc und 2% der Petit Verdot. In großen Jahrgängen wie diesem drückt jede Rebsorte ihren eigenen Charakter auf wunderbare Weise aus, wie es hier der Fall ist. Was ist also anders an Château Margaux 2015 im Vergleich zu seinen Vorgängern? Es ist eine schwierige Frage, besonders für große Jahrgänge wie diesen. Es gibt mit Sicherheit Ähnlichkeiten und Parallelen und auch Unterschiede, die man vielleicht nicht erwartet. Man kann jedoch sagen, dass 2015 die Kraft von 2005 hat, den Körper von 2009 und die unterschwällige Eleganz von 2010, sowie den unverkenbaren Charme von Château Margaux.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Chateau Margaux is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Medium garnet-purple colored, the nose features oh-so-seductive notes of warm blackberries, cassis and black forest cake with touches of forest floor, sandalwood, anise and cigar boxes plus a waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers taut, muscular, densely packed black fruits and exotic spice flavor layers supported by a very firm backbone of grainy tannins with oodles of freshness and a long, savory finish. It is tightly knit and a little reticent at this very youthful stage; afford it at least 15 years in the cellar, and it will open out into a classic Chateau Margaux of incredible proportions. Readers may be interested to know that this wine is beautifully packaged in a special commemorative bottle honoring winemaker Paul Pontellier, who passed away in 2016. The gold-etched black bottle bears the message, "Hommage à Paul Pontellier" at the bottom. This 2015 is an achingly beautiful swan song from an incredibly gifted winemaker, taken from us too soon. In my view, this alone makes this vintage more than worth the investment for the many lovers of history in a bottle.
