Unctuous nose of plum and black cherry aromas and notes of sandal wood, dry fruits and ginger. Fully mature it is harmonious and shows great complexity.
French still red wine from Margaux Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Château Margaux is one of the 5th 1er Cru Classé property. Named ‘La Mothe de Margaux’ (the Margaux mound) in the 12th Century, the estate as we know it today was set up by the Lestonnac family in the 16th century. The château was the first claret to appear in a Christie’s catalogue with the 1771 vintage. After successive ownership, Andre Mentzelopoulos bought the domain in 1977, and 2 years later his daughter Corine took over the estate. She recruited Paul Pontallier to oversee the production who decided to increase the use of Cabernet Sauvignon into the blend. The quality of their wines has been consistently excellent over the past three decades. View our selection.
Out of the 265 hectares, 82 are under vine with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and some Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Some Sauvignon Blanc is also planted for the production of the white wine. The wines are fermented in oak vats, and aged in 100% new barrels for 22 months for the production of the grand vin.
They produce three red wines, the Grand vin Château Margaux, the second vin Pavillon Rouge and recently a third wine Margaux du Château Margaux. They also produce a white wine named Pavillon Blanc.
