Tasting Notes Margaux 2008

94

This is so subtle and refined on the nose with amazing perfumes of rose petal, blueberries and blackberries. Full but very tight and fresh with a lovely length that goes on and on. Starts off slowly with a solid core of fruit,  then grows denser and denser. This is shy at first, needs at leat five years of bottle age.

This is a stunning Chateau Margaux, made in a sexy, up-front, elegant style, with deep creme de cassis fruit intermixed with spring flowers, a solid inner core of richness and depth, but again, very sweet tannins as well as striking minerality and elegance. One of the most seductive Chateau Margauxs given its recent bottling, this blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot should drink beautifully for the next 25-30 years. Remarkably, a mere 36% of the entire production was selected for the 2008 Chateau Margaux.

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. Two bottles of the Chateau Margaux 2008 were opened, one showing a little more chutzpah than the other. It has an exuberant, mineral-rich bouquet with stunning delineation that soars from the glass with blackberry, limestone and cassis aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins. Great precision, beautifully integrated oak with a seamless finish as fresh as a daisy. Although it is surpassed by the 2009 and 2010, this is still a very precise, pretty Chateau Margaux. Tasted January 2012.
