Margaux, Château Margaux, Margaux 1e cru classé rouge 2006
Wine Spectator: „Very powerful and rich. Fantastic. Full, silky and structured. Yet layered and rich, with loads of mineral, violet and coffee character. Incredible. So much finesse in the nose. What a wine. Similar to the 1995, which received 100 points. 95-100 Punkte.”

Parker: „The strictest selection ever instituted at this estate resulted in only 36% of the crop being utilized for the blend of 2006 Chateau Margaux. Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, it is similar to the 1996, but with sweeter, more seductive fruit in the nose. A big, tannic, dense effort displaying terrific purity, power, elegance, and a distinctive mineral/flower component, it is a medium to full-bodied wine of great nobility that should be at its finest between 2017-2050+. 93-95 Punkte.”

Tanzer: „(90% cabernet sauvignon, 4% each merlot and petit verdot, and 2% cabernet franc) Medium bright ruby. Compellingly perfumed nose of boysenberry, cassis, graphite, licorice and violet. Suave on entry, then imploded in the middle and extremely slow to show itself. Very pure, understated black fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors are like an essence of cabernet. Savory rather than particularly sweet: there`s nothing easy or obvious about this wine today. A dry and classic style; the tannins are tight for a young Margaux but not hard, and the finishing flavors are vibrant and perfumed. The pH of 3.68 is on the low side for a wine from this chateau. 92-95 points.”

Jancis Robinson: „36% of total crop went into this grand vin, with just 4% Merlot. The strength is 13% (“we never want to make more alcohol than this” according to Paul Pontallier.) 3.37 TA, 5 in tarartic, pH 3.7, IPT 71 (IPT in 2000 was 70). Mid crimson. SO much riper and more appetising and fuller than the Pavillon Rouge on the nose! Pretty complete already with lovely balance and lift, though the acidity is certainly notable, even if the tannins are wonderfully mellow. Very polite and unforced. Dancing – reminds Paul Pontallier of 1996 with a little less density but just as much charm. Very Margaux. This is the Cabernet of Margaux (not of Pauillac NB…) Graceful though only for certain palates. Follows through. Great line, as the Australians would say. Quite distinctive and much much more delicate than the early vintages of Margaux from the new regime here in the 1980s. Very fresh and elegant – quite a gamble in a way. Very, very fine tannins. Bone dry. Will always be in elegant idiom. 18++”

Quarin: „Blend: 90 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 % Merlot, 4 % Petit Verdot, 2 % Cabernet Franc. Degree alcohol: 13. Selection of the harvest: 36 % as opposed to 40 % in 2005 and 42 % in 2004. With 90 % Cabernet Sauvignon, this 2006 vintage holds the record for the highest percentage of this variety of grape. When you know that the 4% of Merlot comes from the Church parcel, a good soil for Cabernet Sauvignon, I tell myself that some day, Château Margaux could demolish the concept of blend so dear to the Bordeaux wine-making economy. Here are two consecutive vintages where the color appears very dark. The nose begins discreetly. You have only to swirl it to find subtle aromatic notes: fruits, flowers, licorice. In the mouth, the wine starts very meticulously in ist touch. It quickly takes on density all the while remaining ethereal. Smoothly, it moves forward to the middle of the tongue with a taste of red fruit and ink, in a very Cabernet style. Then, it becomes tight and fat and taking on a second life. Very flavorful, it finishes on a grain of tannin with incomparable texture. The whole is perfectly balanced and totally unspitable! A great wine that reminds me of the profile of 1996 today, but with a bit more fat at the finish. The note seems slightly superior to that of 2004 as a primeur wine. (Since then, it has gained 0.75 points.) 2006 arrives in third position among Château Margaux’s most tannic wines, at the same level as 1995, 1996 and 2000, but behind 2003 and 2005. 95 Punkte.”

René Gabriel, WeinWisser: „90% Caberneet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc; Ertrag: 47hl/ha; nur 36%der Ernte als Chateau Margaux klassiert): Mittleres Purpur-Rubin, aufhellender Rand. Sehr dichtes Bouquet, Maulbeeren, Preiselbeeren und eine Spur Johannisbeeren, welche dem dicht beschichteten Nasenbild eine schöne Vielseitigkeit und auch Frische verleihen, darunter Trüffelnoten, Edelhölzer und feinpfeffrig. Im Gaumen Rasse und Finessen gleicheitig, Fruchtspiel bei verschiedenen roten Beeren bleibend, noch fein mehliger Fluss auf den Zunge, noch etwas fehlende, angestammte Süsse, was mit dem weiteren Barriqueausbau sicher kommen wird, Zeit brauchend, mindestens zehn Jahre Flaschenreife, um die Aromatik freizugeben. Philippe Bascaules, technischer Direktor auf Chateau Margaux, vergleicht den 2006er mit grossen Jahrgängen wie 1986, 1995, 1996 und 2000, so weit sind wir bei unseren Vergeichen (noch) nicht. 18/20 Punkten.”
