Oddly, the wines of Margaux are said to be feminine, distinguishing them from the more burly and masculine northern Médoc wines. You might also hear them desribed as seductive, perfumed and silky, reinforcing this rather peculiar idea of gender in wine. But the wines do have a certain (dare I say feminine!) charm that others do not. When good, they really are phenomenal.
Alongside Chateau Margaux is Château Palmer as the other truly outstanding wine. Below this tier lie a number of excellent wines that should be sought, but some of the 21 classed growth wines can be disappointing in poorer vintages. A criticism, perhaps, of Margaux could be its size and therefore its diversity. Not all Margaux wine is great, by any means.
Majestic have a canny knack for unearthing the good and the great from mixed bags like Margaux. Do not be put off - the wines can be more rewarding than any other.
