Serena Sutcliffe, MW: This has always had, from the start, a great rosy bloom to the bouquet, maybe a reflection of the 1900 when it was young? Violets, finesse and sheer class. Great freshness on the palate. Blackberry jam. Great spicy black fruit all through it. Huge tannins that are so soft and fresh. Luscious redcurrants at the end. In 2013, incredible cassis and chocolate, very expressive and “smoky”. 04/13

Representative blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc

Annual production: 29,000 cases of Grand Vin and Pavillon Rouge (the second label) and around 3000 cases of Pavillon Blanc, a 100% Sauvignon Blanc

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.
