Margaux 2020 in bottle: overview plus top-scoring wines

The Margaux appellation delivered an exceptional array of quality wines in 2020 with the best displaying soaring aromatics and sensuous textures.

A strong showing for Margaux in 2020 that battled with difficult growing conditions like much of the Left Bank, with estates battling with climatic extremes and dealing with drought the best they could.

Estates on clay-gravels performed well and those that harvested grapes at full maturity from the middle of September were generally successful.
