In a difficult vintage, Château Margaux produced a relatively mid-weight, soft, richly fruity wine with some hints of weedy tobacco in the aromas and flavours of this dark plum-coloured wine. The wine is medium bodied, reaching full maturity,and has a surprising depth, ripeness, and sweetness for a wine from such a horrific year. Anticipated maturity:now-2010.

An excellent dark ruby/purple color accompanies a soft, smoky, blackcurrant-scented wine. Although round, generous, sexy, and alluring, the 1993 does nor possesses enough length to justify an outstanding score, but I would not be surprised to see that develop with another 2-3 years of bottle age. It is a beautifully made, elegant, rich style of Margaux was that can be drunk now, or cellared for 15+ years.
