Investment Opportunity - Chateau Margaux 2016

Dear Wine Lover,


We are seeing strong appetite from our clients in the Bordeaux 2016,  two are the main reasons: firstly ; the wines are exiting their final stage of en primeurs and will be shortly available for delivery winter/spring 2019 and secondly because in the coming months, final scores for the wine will be released, both factors of course mean the inevitable rise in price for the vintage.


2016 Vintage in Bordeaux is one of the best we’ve seen in recent years. As Neal Martin puts it: “Let’s cut to the chase: 2016 is unequivocally a great vintage in Bordeaux…we are looking at a vintage that can send tingles down the spine and back up again.” Overall superior to the already exquisite 2015, the 2016 Cabernet-based wines of the Left Bank are some of the best ever made. The wines have gorgeous pure fruit flavors, perfectly ripe tannins, and a precision and structure that evokes the 2010s, but with a much more subtle complex style.


End of September we sent an offer on Lafite 2016 to our clients, we sold out our full stock of over 600 bottles, with plenty of clients wanting more… we have been asking our management if we could offer some Château Margaux 2016, one of the vintage highlight an this might be the last opportunity to purchase this wine before delivery… a very good deal in our opinion due to a very simple price comparison with “similar” vintages available in the market:

2005 Château Margaux - CHF 1’000.-

Antonio Galloni 97-100 Points: The 2016 Margaux is magnificent in the best tradition of the Château Margaux style, which always speaks more to finesse than power. Above all else, the 2016 is a wine of superb persistence, understated power and total refinement. There is wonderful depth and intensity to the ripe red and purplish-hued fruits, accompanied by mint, rose petal and sweet spice overtones that develop in the glass. The 2016 finishes with great aromatic lift and freshness. It has been absolutely compelling on the two occasions I have tasted it so far.

Robert Parker 97-99 Points: The 2016 Chateau Margaux is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, plus 1% of Petit Verdot, representing 28% of the total production. This is the highest proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon apart from 2013, which was due to the poor Merlot. It was cropped around 50 hectoliters per hectare depending on the grape variety, for example it could be up to 65 hectoliters per hectare in some sectors. Lucid in color, it has a detailed and precise bouquet with mineral-rich blackberry, raspberry coulis and limestone scents. It feels very perfumed, though not powerful like many Grand Vins in 2016. The palate is a different creature to the aromatics. Here is the intensity of the vintage with shimmering black fruit laced with spice, a killer line of acidity and an irresistible crescendo on the finish. Then, graphite lingering on the aftertaste, a nod to Pauillac perhaps. The aftertaste is so long you could probably write a letter to your friend enthusing about this wine before the aftertaste fades. Doubtless it is destined to be compared to the magnificent 2015 Château Margaux and to be truthful, there's a hair's breadth between them. In a word: crystalline.

James Suckling 98-99 Points: A purity of fruit marks this Margaux with lots of currant and berry character. Full body, bright acidity and round tannins. It’s a larger and more expanded style of Margaux. A wine with a heart and body. Strong.

Jean Marc Quarin 99 Points: Couleur sombre, intense, noire, pourpre, vive. Nez complexe, intense, fin. Bouche merveilleuse où le vin monte dans une grande douceur tactile, très élégant dans son toucher, très « Musigny » dans ses arômes. Puis il fond et s’étire longtemps, noble, précis et superbe de classe. Ce résultat est obtenu avec une sélection sévère de 28 % de premier vin ce qui permet de dépasser le standard qualitatif de l’appellation cette année. Assemblage : 94 % de cabernet sauvignon (très élevé), 3 % de cabernet franc, 2 % merlot, 1 % petit verdot. Degré d’alcool : 13° (moyenne) - pH : 3,6 (moyenne plus) – IPT : 70 (moyenne plus).
