Infos produit

1981 is a return to a classic date, unlike the previous four years, marked by late harvests. Flowering was quick and even, with a very hot and dry month of August and some rain in September. Throughout the harvest, the climatic conditions were very good.
1981 has been a fine vintage from the start. The evolution in bottles has confirmed the hopes of the Château, allowing the Pavillon Blanc 1981 du Château Margaux to develop this complexity and this finesse which only belong to the greatest white wines.

Château Margaux

Château Margaux is one of the largest wine estates in Bordeaux. In AOC, Margaux appears in the first classified growths of the official classification of Médoc wines of 1855.


If it is a privilege to bear the name of its Margaux appellation, there is no doubt that Château Margaux does it great honor.


For several centuries, this Premier Cru Classé has expressed to the highest degree the exceptional qualities of terroirs patiently brought together by several generations of owners. Maintained and harvested exclusively by hand with extreme care, the 78 hectares of vines (75% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet-Franc and Petit-Verdot) draw their richness very deeply from the soil. clayey-gravelly, particularly dense and thick.


Fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, is followed by 18 to 24 months of aging in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among the Bordeaux wines, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals finesse and opulence, depth and complexity on tasting, and develops a bouquet of rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruits, under -taut by tight tannins that require patient aging before blossoming. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux (100% Sauvignon Blanc).


Best vintages of Château Margaux are : 1900, 1928, 1953, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1990
