Product Overview

Château Margaux was awarded Premier Cru status in Bordeaux’s 1855 Classification and is the most prestigious wine estate in the Haut-Medoc district, producing some of the finest, longest-lived wines in the world. The 1986 vintage was an outstanding one for Bordeaux, and the Château Margaux shows its power and finesse. This wine has the potential to age gracefully for decades, perhaps indefinitely, making it a superb investment and a gift that will stand the test of time.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 98
A magnificent example of Chateau Margaux and one of the most tannic, backward Margauxs of the last 50 years, the 1986 continues to evolve at a glacial pace. The color is still a dense ruby/purple with just a hint of lightening at the rim. With several hours of aeration, the aromatics become striking, with notes of smoke, toast, creme de cassis, mineral, and white flowers. Very full-bodied, with high but sweet tannin, great purity, and a very masculine, full-bodied style, this wine should prove nearly immortal in terms of its aging potential. It is beginning to budge from its infantile stage and approach adolescence. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2050.
