A wine with spices, meat, and very ripe fruit on the nose, with hints of dried flowers. Full bodied, and deeply layered, with loads of fruit and spices. Long and decadent, very complex

Notes on the Producer

Château Margaux is owned and run by Corinne Mentzelopoulos, and despite the estate's premier cru status, this great left bank Bordeaux estate has a wonderful family feel, lacking pretension and snobbery that one can find in certain other Bordeaux estates.

Corinne (who took over in 1980) and her mother and father before her have led Margaux out of the doldrums (together with the legendary winemaker Paul Pontallier, who sadly passed away in 2016) both spiritually and in terms of quality, and there seems to be a remarkable team ethic and bond from the vineyard workers right through to the management team. Since 1990, Château Margaux has been one of the most consistent fine red wine producers in all of Bordeaux, making one of the top wines vintage after vintage.

Organic farming is very much practiced at Château Margaux, and in fact the 2017 grand vin vintage was farmed using only organic methods. The vineyard is now divided into 80 parcels and unlike many Bordeaux estates, most of their 82 vineyards are close to the château. The 82 hectare vineyard is planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc for the red wine producing grapes. Experiments are also taking place with a small (1 hectare) parcel of Cabernet vines farmed with biodynamic techniques.

Château Margaux is renowned for its seductive, silky wines, with real elegance, purity of fruit, harmony and finesse. The estate produces four wines: the grand vin Château Margaux; Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux; Pavillon Blanc, and Margaux du Château Margaux.
