Château Margaux 2002
Margaux, 1er cru classé
Offered in an original wooden case
Tasting note: Two notes, at the chateau. Merlot crop seriously affected by poor summer. Highest-ever percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in blend (86%). Ex cask April 2003: opaque, intense; whiff of raspberry though only 2% Cabernet Franc; silkily dry, crisp young fruit; discrete oak, long dry finish. A year later, also in cask: plummy purple, attractive fruit and spicy new oak; very flavoury and relatively easy. Last tasted March 2004 (****) 2010 – 2020. MB.
