Along with Lafite, Latour and Haut-Brion, it was rated as a first growth in the original 1855 Bordeaux Classification of the Médoc. Generally, Margaux is considered as the most elegant of the first growths, and is consistently one of the most expensive wines in the world. The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend is complimented with small portions of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Château Margaux's vineyards have a complex combination of soils that are unique to the area. These consist of chalky clay under a top layer of coarse and fine gravels, which is well-suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, which accounts for around 75 percent of plantings. Merlot makes up a further 20 percent, with the rest planted to Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. As is typical for top Bordeaux estates, the vineyard is densely planted at 10,000 vines per hectare. There are also 12 hectares (30 acres) of Sauvignon Blanc to make Margaux's white offering, Pavillon Blanc, which must be sold as Bordeaux AOP, not Margaux. This compliments the Pavillon Rouge the second wine of which production dates back to the beginning of the 16th Century.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-05T16:00:17-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-28T03:16:59-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","nini2903","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Margaux","Region_Bordeaux","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":199899,"price_min":199899,"price_max":199899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42872415191178,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1986 | Château Margaux | Margaux","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":199899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_d5e27b12-652e-4fb5-a6b4-f3572ab9ae3d.png?v=1679987854"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_d5e27b12-652e-4fb5-a6b4-f3572ab9ae3d.png?v=1679987854","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":" 1986 | Château Margaux | Margaux at CaskCartel.com","id":24480923123850,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.374,"height":863,"width":323,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_d5e27b12-652e-4fb5-a6b4-f3572ab9ae3d.png?v=1679987854"},"aspect_ratio":0.374,"height":863,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_d5e27b12-652e-4fb5-a6b4-f3572ab9ae3d.png?v=1679987854","width":323}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1986 | Château Margaux | Margaux\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e1986 vintage is full and rich on the palate, with plenty of concentration and remarkable minerality.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Château Margaux\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings:\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWA\u003c\/span\u003e | 98  \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" color=\"#ff2a00\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 95\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage:\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e1986\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 12%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Bordeaux Blend Red\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Bordeaux\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e1986 vintage is full and rich on the palate, with plenty of concentration and remarkable minerality.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003eReviews:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eWine Advocate\u003c\/strong\u003e:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eA magnificent example of Chateau Margaux and one of the most tannic, backward Margauxs of the last 50 years, the 1986 continues to evolve at a glacial pace.

      Reviews:

      • Wine Advocate: A magnificent example of Chateau Margaux and one of the most tannic, backward Margauxs of the last 50 years, the 1986 continues to evolve at a glacial pace. The color is still a dense ruby/purple with just a hint of lightening at the rim. With several hours of aeration, the aromatics become striking, with notes of smoke, toast, creme de cassis, mineral, and white flowers. Very full-bodied, with high but sweet tannin, great purity, and a very masculine, full-bodied style.
      • James Suckling: The charcoal note makes an encore, with a lovely twinge of old-school character holding the finish. Always a great debate vis-à-vis the '90, but the slightly darker profile here gives this wine a lovely bit of extra drama.
