Château Margaux 1926 is a superb, very powerful, rich wine, which must surely have been hard and austere for many years. But today, a little like the 1928, it is very pleasant and has kept an amazing freshness. It is a marvellous wine to drink, when we are lucky enough to open a good bottle or a well-cellared magnum.
The flowering took place in difficult weather conditions. The hot and dry weather which then followed in the summer continued throughout the harvest, albeit a late one. The crop was very low; however, the grapes reached an excellent level of concentration and ripeness.
The picking began 4th October.
