Top 10 wines of Bordeaux 2016

4. Margaux

Château Margaux

2015 release price: €384 p/b
Neal Martin: 97-99
Jancis Robinson MW: 17.5
James Suckling: 98-99

The ‘best’ wine of the 2015 vintage thanks to what was a superb year for the Margaux appellation in general and what was a fitting send off for the late Paul Pontallier – whose last vintage it was.

Margaux – like Saint Estèphe in 2015 – did not quite reach the same heights in 2016 although there’s no doubt there’s hardly been a collapse in quality either.

Dedicated Margaux buyers will of course pick it up but it wouldn’t be surprising if buyers keep their powder dry for the undoubtedly excellent first growths (and other cru classé) from Pauillac this year.
