96/100 Wine Advocate, R. Parker: "The 2006 Château Margaux has a sense of airiness and wonderful definition on the nose: wild strawberry, redcurrant, cedar and crushed roses soaring from the glass, but it never strives for the opulence of say the 2006 Château Palmer. The palate is very well balanced with fine and quite firm tannin in the mouth. This seems to be approaching its plateau after a decade. While not a powerful or ostentatious Château Margaux, it epitomizes understatement and refinement in a similar vein to Lafite-Rothschild. It is only after the wine has been swallowed that you appreciate its qualities and you feel urged to go back for another sip. Tasted January 2016"; 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson; 18.5/20 Guide Vert RVF

Viticulture

Château Margaux was the first Bordeaux vintage to appear in a Christie's catalogue in March 1776. Taken over from the Ginestet family in 1977 by André Mentzelopoulos, it is his daughter Corinne who runs the estate. The terroir is composed of clay-limestone soil and gravel from the quaternary period. The vineyard of nearly 82 hectares covers the entire north-eastern part of the village of Margaux. The average age is 30 years. The planting density is 10,000 vines per hectare.

Oenology

The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully sorted before vinification. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled oak vats and lasts 3 weeks. The Margaux wine is aged for 18 to 24 months in new oak barrels. Before bottling, the wine is fined with egg white.
