Château Margaux

The Château Margaux is an unmistakable name in Bordeaux winegrowing, whose prestige and reputation have long transcended borders. Known as "La Mothe de Margaux" as early as the 12th century, the high quality of its wines was recognized in the early 15th century thanks to the winemaking work of régisseur Berlon, who separated the red grapes from the white and succeeded in distinguishing the best parcels.

In 1784, this wine seduced Thomas Jefferson, future president of the United States and French ambassador at the time. In the early 19th century, Château was destroyed by its then owner, the Marquis de la Colonilla Bertrand Douat, who rebuilt it as we know it today, with its Ionic peristyle, monumental staircase and classical façade.

The consecration of Château Margaux comes when it attains the rank of Ier Grand Cru Classé in 1855, a distinction it shares with 4 other great Bordeaux names: Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Haut-Brion, Château Latour and Château Mouton Rothschild since the single revision of the classification in 1973. The Margaux appellation was not created until 1954, inspired by the irreproachable excellence of the eponymous Château.

Owned since 1977 by the Greek Mentzelopoulos Family, Château Margaux today oversees a vineyard of 82 hectares, 70 of which are dedicated to the production of red wines. The average age of the vines is 35 years, with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

The wines of Château Margaux are the fruit of a drastic selection designed to keep only the best of the crop, aiming to be full-bodied and opulent, with great length and unrivalled refinement.

Description Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux 2005.

A deep, dark red with hints of orange, the wine opens with a nose of magnificent scents of ripe black fruits and violets. A hint of minerality enhances the whole, bringing freshness. A delicate attack on the palate. The wine is carried away by its finesse, suavity and velvety, perfectly chiselled tannins. Aromatically, the wine is concentrated and powerful. It's a veritable explosion of fruit that continues for long Secondes.
