The 2007 Margaux is a beautiful red bordeaux blend and each grape varietal exhibits their best level of quality. The dominant grape which provides the personality of the wine is the Cabernet. It exhibits its nobility and pedigree as it adds finesse and density at the same time. The Merlot adds an opulence, a tender and rich texture, along with the Cabernet Franc which the conditions of the vintage clearly benefited. Finally, the addition of Petit Verdot adds the perfect balance and uniqueness to the wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 92
"The elegant 2007 Chateau Margaux’s purity, depth of fruit, and overall equilibrium are impressive. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of spring flowers, black currants, and blackberries, a soft, lush, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and delicacy allied to impressive depth, texture, and length. Already drinkable, it should continue to offer exceptional pleasure for 15 or more years."

"Bright, dark red. Knockout nose combines redcurrant, blackberry, spices, flowers, tobacco and sexy sweet oak tones; complex and aristocratic. Then sweet, suave and seamless, with lovely inner-mouth perfume and noteworthy finesse to the flavors of blackberry, cherry and flowers. Finishes long and sweet, with noble tannins for the year. Not a big wine but one of the classiest examples of the vintage."
