Château Margaux 2019 1.5L
Critics have called the 2019 Margaux “divine,” “amazing,” and “utterly heavenly,” and they are not wrong. This wine unfurls its profound perfume in waves of crisp red berries, luscious blue and black fruits, pencil lead, rain-spattered wildflowers, fresh loam, truffle shavings, and whiffs of smoke, crushed stones, and peppery spices. With its silky texture and sneaky power, this full-bodied, intricate wine retains tremendous energy and verve, and it builds layer by layer to deliver a deeply textured kaleidoscopic drinking experience that melds ripe fruits with saline minerality well into its lingering, resonant finish. A blend of a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot in 2019, this Margaux needs a few years in the cellar but then it will drink for decades, even a century, to come.
