The 2013 Château Margaux has a fragrant nose with pressed iris, clove, bay leaf and light leafy scents, well-defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with a very slight greenness on the entry. With moderate weight and fine acidity, the finish feels rather simple. Maybe Palmer has the upper hand in this off-vintage? Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On tasting.
