On the 19th of June 2023, we have seen the release of Chateau Margaux.

Chateau Margaux 2022

On the 19th June 2023, we now see the release of the first growth wine from Margaux named Margaux, and the price is up 22.9% on last years release. The ex negociant price is 420 Euro a bottle. The wine is being offered by the international trade for £6,192.00 per case of 12 bottles at 75cl each according to Liv-ex, and this will result in an increase of 21.4% on the opening price of the 2021's.


The new release offers relative value compared to others on the market. Buyers looking for other options among back vintages may also want to consider the 2016 and 2020. See more pricing analysis below.


Fair Value analysis


Using Liv-ex’s ‘Fair Value’ methodology, prices for Château Margaux are 77.8% correlated to Neal Martin scores.


Today’s release is coming to the market right on the regression line, meaning it offers relative value.


Buyers looking for other opportunities might want to consider the 2016 and 2020 vintages, which both hold a Neal Martin score of 98 points. They are available at a discount of 6.5% and 3.1% respectively to today’s release.


Critics’ scores


Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the wine a barrel range of 96-98 points, calling it ‘almost swaggering in style’. He differentiates this year’s Margaux as ‘not a subtle or nuanced’ blend as usual, but instead a ‘First Growth that is dressed to kill’.


‘Stunning in its density and construction’, wrote Jane Anson (Inside Bordeaux), who scored the wine 98-100 points. She highlights the ‘gorgeous balance’ achieved here despite unprecedented levels of alcohol in the estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon.


Jeff Leve (Wine Cellar Insider) was similarly enthusiastic about the 2022 Margaux, giving it a range of 98-100 points and praising the ‘silky, sensuous, rich, and almost viscous’ palate.


William Kelley (Wine Advocate) was slightly more reserved, rating the wine at 96-97+ points. He notes that the 2022 is ‘one of the most powerful wines ever produced at this estate’, but maintains that ‘at this early stage, everything appears to be in check’.
