2005 Chateau Margaux Red Blend
Bright, saturated ruby-red; not the darkest young Margaux of recent years. Brilliantly perfumed, pure nose of blackberry, violet, minerals and sexy toasty oak. Wonderfully sweet and subtle in the mouth, with the wine's extraordinary finesse of texture partly hiding its great density. It's hard to imagine a more seamless, fine-grained wine at this level of power. Blue and black fruits are further sharpened by the wine's floral character. Perhaps most impressive today on the back half, where the wine spreads out to take over the entire palate and ultimately expands to fill the mouth and olfactories. There's great backbone here for aging, but no sensation of hardness even today. ST
