    Product description

    En Primeur Château Margaux will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.

    The châteaux has a history dating back to the 12th century when it was called ‘La Mothe de Margaux’, which translates as the Margaux mound, a relatively unusual geographic feature of the generally flat area around Bordeaux. In 1152, Aquitaine fell to the advance of the English until 1453 and so Bordeaux wines benefited from this new market. Bordeaux ‘claret’ was adopted as a table wine by Richard the Lion Heart, King of England in the 12th century.
    The successive owners of La Mothe de Margaux were important lords but it was not until the arrival of the Lestonnac family that the estate was created as we know it today. Pierre de Lestonnac succeeded, in the ten years from 1572 to 1582, in completely restructuring the property as well as the vineyard and anticipated the general evolution of the Médoc that had started to abandon cereal growing in favour of vines.
    By the end of the 17th century, Château Margaux occupied 265 hectares, land that would not be divided again. A third of the estate was dedicated to vines, which is still the case today. The domaine of Château Margaux has 87 hectares which are entitled to the Margaux AOC declaration. 80 hectares are planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, with 2% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
    The Médoc Classification of 1855 divided about sixty Médoc growths, and a single property in the Graves, into five quality levels. Four growths were classified Premier Grand Cru Classé; only Margaux was marked twenty out of twenty.

    En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
