Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Drunk with the 1989, the room divided on individual preference; I just came down on the side of the 1989! This is true First Growth beauty, with its projection of silky, approachable fruit and sleek bilberry taste - a smoothie of a wine. Utterly tempting and full of black fruit, it has perfect balance and irreproachable class. In 2015 at the property, pure berry fruit on the nose, with enormous freshness. Glorious opulence and fighting force. This really bounds out of the glass at you. A fabulous success. 06/15

One of the most hallowed names in wine, Margaux has an allure to it which has proved irresistible to drinkers for centuries. Sited on arguably the most perfect terroir for Cabernet Sauvignon in Bordeaux, the sheer first growth nobility of the property comes across on the nose every time: a perfume of stunning complexity and beauty. The neo-classical building, perhaps the definitive image of Bordeaux to outsiders, also helps the cause. But ultimately, this is wine lovers` wine, exemplary year by year and just more beautiful with age. Under winemaker Paul Pontallier and the ownership of the Mentzelopoulos family since the late 1970s, the property has gone from strength to strength.
