Margaux - Premier Grand Cru Classé
- When to drink this wine : 2006 - 2030
- Tasted by Robert Parker in 2001: "The 1998 Margaux has a dense ruby/purple color. The wine is tannic and austere, but elegant, with notes of asphalt, blackberry, acacia flowers and sweet, toasty oak. Subtle, rich, well-textured and medium-bodied, it's made to last."
