As always, as the French saying goes, "August makes the must"or in this case, it was the undoing of the must. Despite the very fine weather in September, the grapes were never able to acquire sufficient concentration after suffering during the month of August. Château Margaux 1958 is a fine, light wine, which has always lacked body, but had charm, which today is starting to fade. It should have been drunk by now. - September 2002
A late-ripening year, with a very rainy August and a fine, hot September.
The harvest was carried out in beautiful weather. The picking began 6th October.
