Chateau Marguax 1996 (Magnum)
Chateau Margaux 1996
The 1996 is a modern day legend. This wine, a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, achieved a natural alcohol of nearly 13%. The wine's acidity is low, largely because the estate harvested the Cabernet Sauvignon extremely late, not completing the harvest until mid-October.
It continues to give every indication of being one of the all-time great clarets from this renowned wine region. The dense opaque purple colour possesses a thick, unctuous texture.
The nose offers celestial aromas of cassis, vanillan, and intriguing blackberry and floral scents in the background. Despite ageing in 100% new oak, the fruit dominates the wine, with the oak offering a minor background nuance. In the mouth, this wine is massive, but not heavy, with extraordinary richness, perfect precision and equilibrium, an opulent texture and remarkably well-integrated tannin, acidity and alcohol.
