Chateau Margaux 1975
One of the most iconic wineries in the world, Chateau Margaux has been at the forefront of the wine industry since its foundation in 16th Century and even more so since its placement within the top rung of French wines in Napoleon's 1855 Classification. As sought after today as ever it was, Chateau Margaux is one of a handful of estates whose wines enjoy the utmost global preference.
While 1975 vintage in Bordeaux was widely reported to be not great, the perfect long spring and summer seasons allowed good development of the grapes, which followed by prolonged rain ensured further ripening. The resulting high tannins provided a wine not particularly fit for drinking in its youth, but conversely provides the solid backbone essential to a considerably lengthy period of ageing.
