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+. RP
