Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

99pts - A brilliant offering from the Mentzelopoulos family, once again their gifted manager, Paul Pontallier, has produced an uncommonly concentrated, powerful 2009 Chateau Margaux made from 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. As with most Medocs, the alcohol here is actually lower (a modest 13.3%) than most of its siblings-. Abundant blueberry, cassis and acacia flower as well as hints of charcoal and forest floor aromas that are almost Burgundian in their complexity are followed by a wine displaying sweet, well-integrated tannins as well as a certain ethereal lightness despite the wine's overall size. Rich, round, generous and unusually approachable for such a young Margaux, this 2009 should drink well for 30-35+ years.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #199, Feb 2012)

98pts - The 2009 Château Margaux is deep garnet in color and features wonderfully fragrant minted cassis, lilacs, black forest cake and oolong tea scents with touches of pencil shavings and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, grainy frame with lovely freshness lifting the perfumed fruit to a very long, mineral-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 2019

The 2009 Château Margaux is blessed with a stunning nose that delivers intense blackberry and cranberry scents, crushed rose petals and touches of slate. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, taut and quite linear with an effortless and precise finish that is a pure joy. You have the sense of a Château Margaux that is only beginning to show what it can do. Brilliant. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. - vinous.com, March 2019

[87CS/9M/2CF/2PV] Ripe blackcurrant Cabernet and marked Médoc gravel aromas; persistent, beguiling and very mineral to smell; immediate impression of velvet texture, a beautifully, delicately rich, Margaux with tannins of such finesse they are almost imperceptible; sweet, generous, purringly resonant to taste, ample, scented and refined; a mouthfilling purity here, density and delicacy within a fabulously caressing texture, and with a hugely persistent mouthcoating film of subtle aromas and great sweetness of fruit. An effortless tenacity of flavour, intensity without force, quintessential Margaux! Endlessly graceful, scented length. A magnificently beautiful expression of Margaux. 2020-40+

This marathon runner is currently in the no-man's land between youthful vitality and mellow maturity. There's a very serious tannin structure here, but it needs a lot longer to fully resolve. Very tight and closed. A perfect wine usually. But not today. Try in 2020. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019) - Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com, March 2019
