Tasting Notes:

There is great finesse and above all purity on the nose; in this subtle combination of floral, fruit and spice aromas, all are clearly present but no single aroma dominates. On the palate, the tannic structure is tight-knit, fine and tender. The general impression is firstly balance, precision, freshness and finally an air-light grace which can only be found in great Margaux.

2004 was born in conditions closely resembling those of 1996: the same unsettled summer weather, the same lovely early autumn, the same rainy harvest… Last minute rain though in no way modifies the body of a wine, nor weakens its muscle; it only takes away a bit of fatness, which gives it a finer silhouette. Château Margaux 2004 is therefore a great classic vintage.

After quite a late bud-burst, spring was cool and rather dry. The temperatures then went up in late May, while an early and lengthy period of drought set in. As a result, the flowering was quick and the setting went through perfectly, which reinforced our forecasts of an abundant crop. The summer was "normal", in so far as no excessively hot, cool, wet or dry weather was noted. At the end of August, all the potential was there, including the chance of a great vintage. The month of September, which was hot and dry, was therefore decisive, as it often proves in Bordeaux, allowing an even and complete ripening of all the grape varieties. (Picking began on October 1st).
