Liv-ex survey: ‘best’ wines of Bordeaux 2018

9: Château Margaux

Antonio Galloni: 95-98
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 97-100
Julia Harding MW: 18.5

As one of the larger communes on the Left Bank, Margaux can often be a little patchy in a heterogeneous vintage such as 2018.

Nonetheless, when the wines are good they can be really very good indeed and there is rarely a better exemplar than the AOC’s eponymous first growth.

Colin Hay opined it is the estate’s best effort since its now near-legendary 2015, while Antonio Galloni in his report (out today, 3 May) notes that it carried off the vintage in its “inimitable style”.
