The 2007 Chateau Margaux Grand Cru Classe wine has a bright, dark red color. All of the Left Bank firsts are tasting excellent, but Margaux stands out for the tightness and clarity of its sweet cherry and cassis fruit expression, the menthol grip on the finish, and the perfume that runs through the palate. The structure of this has some substance, but this Chateau Margaux wine is a light, aromatic wine, developing fast, already delicious. This 2007 Chateau Margaux wine could almost be ready to drink with a good carafing, but the layers of graphite and the finesse to the tannins suggest it could also go longer. This First Growth wine is a great example of the subtle crafting possible in 2007.
The 2007 Chateau Margaux wine has a blend consisting of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
