The 2022 Château Margaux represents 40% of the crop this year slightly higher than recent years picked between 8 and 27 September. As usual the Grand Vin demands more time to unfold on the nose compared to the Pavillon. It unveils enticing scents of macerated black cherries blueberry violet and hints of orange blossom all delivered with impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with sculpted tannins. A fine-boned and tensile Château Margaux that is quite a remarkable feat given the growing season. Silky smooth and almost creamy at first toward the finish it reveals a slightly powdery texture almost swaggering in style. Not a subtle or nuanced Château Margaux rather Philippe Bascaules has conjured a First Growth that is dressed to kill. 14.6% alcohol.

Very dark purple color with a ruby edge. So much crushed blackberry and blackcurrant with violets. Exuberant. Full-bodied and very tannic with incredible muscle. This is a thought-provoking wine. The biggest Margaux I have tasted in my career. Seems a little overdone for Margaux. 92% cabernet sauvignon 6% merlot and 2% petit verdot.
