"92-94 points: Muscular and powerful. Superlong. Gorgeous aromas of blackberries, minerals and currants. Full-bodied and solid, with muscular tannins and a long, long finish. This is really balanced and refined. Gorgeous. Paul Pontailler, the technical director, says that it reminds him of the 1996, but may be even better; a blend of 1995 and 1996. Is he right? Maybe. Very close to 95-100."

"92-95 points: The 2004 is a streamlined, graceful example of Chateau Margaux with a deep plum/ruby/purple color and attractive black currant fruit intermixed with notions of white flowers, oak, and cherries. Rigidly constructed, with a lovely, medium-bodied texture, and tremendous purity, it will undoubtedly close down and need some time in the bottle. This beauty should be at its finest between 2010-2025. By the way, the brilliant 2004 is the finest Pavillon Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc) since the 2001."

5 stars "Superb deep colour, a blend of freshness of pure Cabernet fruit aromas and depth of vineyard fruit, complete purity of expression with a concentration that is balanced by the finesse and ripeness of the tannins, great length and impeccable breed, the essence of Margaux. Drink 2013-45. (19 points)" Best 2013-2045

93 points "The supple-textured 2004 Chateau Margaux is reminiscent of the 2001 or 1999. It exhibits a superb blue/purple color to the rim as well as sweet aromas of flowers, blueberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and smoke, superb fruit intensity, medium body, classic elegance, and silky, sweet tannin in the long finish. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more." Best 2007-2027
