INFORMATION OF INTEREST Chateau Margaux 2006
Colour: It has a dark ruby medium colour, with tones that are a little bit lighter on the rim.
Aroma: With a somewhat classic bouquet, but evolved, Margaux offers sweet aromas of currants, wild flowers, liquorice and copse-wood.
Taste: Medium bodied with tannins dry on their end, an excellent breadth on the palate, lacks the depth or the end of other vintages of Chateau Margaux itself, but retains its distinctive flavour quality standard.
Its aromatic power makes it indispensable to be served side dishes of meat, whether from wild or grasses.
This wine has an aristocratic caste, both in wine and in the facilities. The Château was restored completely by André Mentzenpoulos. Thanks to this restoration and the advice of Professor Peynaud Château Margaux returned to the top of the greats. This wine is graceful and quietly elegant perfumed bouquet. Margaux is said to produce the most fragrant wine of the Medoc, or at least corroborates what the historical record, and the truth is that the current situation is getting to that point.
The Margauxs soil is the finest in the Médoc and has the highest proportion of coarse gravel. With respect to nutrients, is the least has to offer to the strain, but has good drainage, even in the raining years. The result is wines that begin their existence with relative flexibility, although in poor years tend to "waste away". But in good years or excellent, all comments about the virtues of gravel are justified: the good Margaux possesses such a delicacy and a wonderfully sweet fragrance that can be the most exquisite Bordeaux.
