Château Margaux 2003 Margaux, 1er Cru Classé1 slightly cellar-soiled label, 1 nicked label45% made the 'grand vin'. Glorious red fruit showing beautiful maturity of the grapes. Very, very good. David Peppercorn said that the texture reminded him of the young 1947. (They have also made a tremendous Pavillon Rouge in 2003.) That real 'penetration' of a 1er Cru bouquet - intense, far-reaching and noble. A huge mouthful of stunning, healthy fruit with the complete, perfect balance of tannin and acidity. Smoky blackberries finish. In 2015, incredibly spicy on the nose, with that exotic touch. So fantastically drinkable and luscious. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 9812 bts (owc)Estimates are per lot
