The 2022 vintage of Château Margaux comprises a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon than usual, the star grape of the vintage in this commune. Wine Advocate was certainly impressed, describing its "aromas of crème de cassis, dark berries, violets, burning embers, smoked tea and exotic spices. Full-bodied, deep and layered, it's rich, velvety and seamless, with a bright core of fruit and a long, heady finish." At just over 14° abv, it's one of the more powerful releases from this awe-inspiring estate, with incredible depth and muscle. Suckling wrote, "So much crushed blackberry and blackcurrant with violets. Exuberant. Full-bodied and very tannic", "a thought-provoking wine", that will appreciate at least a couple of decades cellaring.
