The 2012 Chateau Margaux wine is a Cellar Selection. This Chateau Margaux wine has a taut, linear, pencil lead-infused bouquet with pure blackberry and boysenberry scents, an undercurrent of tobacco that surfaces after five minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, a life-affirming sense of balance with well-integrated new oak towards the finish. The 2012 Chateau Margaux has become more structured and masculine in bottle, yet there is pedigree here from start to finish, a sense of effortlessness that is seductive. This elegant red wine is very much in the classic style of Margaux.
This 2012 Chateau Margaux wine has a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot, as well as only 33% of their harvest.
