Winemaker's Notes

An early flowering and a particular warm, dry summer allowed the fruit to reach a remarkable level of concentration and richness; the intermittent showers during the harvest prevented the vintage from being truly great. We must be content with lovely complexity, distinguished fruit and the promise of a brilliant development.

Critical Acclaim

"This largely forgotten vintage seems to have turned the corner in the last year or two. Because of strict selections made at the top chateaux, the wines always had density, but the level of tannin was frequently too high, and the type of tannin was more green and astringent. Chateau Margaux’s 1994 has always been one of the candidates for the “wine of the vintage.” The wine still has a dense plum/purple color and a big, sweet nose of black fruits intermixed with licorice, camphor, vanilla, and a hint of flowers. The wine is dense and powerful, but the tannins have softened and do not seem as hard and intrusive as they did in the late nineties. This wine will last for decades and hopefully become even more seamless, although it is hard to believe all the tannin will gradually dissipate

(mahr-GOH) Silky Smooth Soft, elegant, feminine… these are words often used to describe the wines of Margaux. The commune is different from its northern neighbors of the Haut-Medoc in both geography and style. Home to the name-sharing premier cru, Margaux lays a few marshlands south of St.-Julien. Notable Facts As in other Medoc appellations, Cabernet Sauvignon leads the...
