The 2010 is a brilliant Chateau Margaux, as one might expect in this vintage. The percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend hit 90%, the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and only 38% of the crop made it into the Chateau Margaux. Paul Pontallier, the administrator, told me that this wine has even higher levels of tannin than some other extraordinary vintages such as 2005, 2000, 1996, etc. Deep purple, pure and intense, with floral notes, tremendous opulence and palate presence, this is a wine of considerable nobility. With loads of blueberry, black currant and violet-infused fruit and a heady alcohol level above 13.5% (although that looks modest compared to several other first growths, particularly Chateau Latour and Chateau Haut-Brion), its beautifully sweet texture, ripe tannin, abundant depth and profound finish all make for another near-perfect wine that should age effortlessly for 30-40 years.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Chateau Margaux 2010 is more open and generous than its peers with sumptuous red and black fruit: dark cherries, juniper berries, dried herbs and undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with ravishing black fruit laced with blueberry and cassis. It is imbued with superb acidity and tension, very good weight with a long sweet, sensual finish that belies the tannins underneath. This is a deceptively serious wine. Tasted January 2014.

1st Growth Margaux (36% harvest,13.1%) [90CS/7M/1.5CF/1.5PV] A heady presence of freshly ripe, sweet black fruit and fresh almost smoky aromas; richly constituted, perfectly balanced, so gently fresh, so fine in its firm tannins; an impression of density and mass without weight, sweet and pure and (the tannin index notwithstanding) with a tannin texture so fine as to be almost imperceptible; an effortlessly rich yet effortlessly fresh sweetness of taste alongside a mouthcoating fragrance, As prolonged to finish as it is to taste. A very burgundian style of power and delicacy, density and lightness, extraordinary transparency. The perfect image of great quintessential Margaux. 1953 (in particular) and 1959 are the closest I can think of in terms of style and quality. Magnificent, certainly one of the wines of a (largely) very great vintage. It doesnâ€™t feel as though it will close up either.... 2025-55+ The 2009 and 2010 will make a quite magnificent pair. Absolutely beguiling. [M.Schuster, Bordeaux Mar/Apr 2011]
Liquid velvet, with stunning length and a caressing mouthfeel, as layers of creamed plum, blackberry coulis and steeped black currant fruit glides along, seamlessly intertwined with black tea, mulled blood orange, incense and lilac. Hints of mesquite and alder hang subtly in the background, and the structure, evident and massive, has melded wonderfully.—Non-blind Château Margaux vertical (December 2013). Best from 2018 through 2040. 10,830 cases made.

This was phenomenal from barrel and remains so. The aromas are spellbinding. It smells like a bouquet of pink roses and then goes to currants, berries and citrus. Full body, with wonderfully refined tannins. It starts discretely and then grows to different levels and dimensions like a slow but big high tide. The texture is so beautiful. Try it in 2020 or beyond.
