The year 1939 was late and very abundant, with a summer deeply marked by international events, which were to lead to the Second World War.
Château Margaux 1939 presents today a very evolved color, but the nose remains delicate and surprisingly fresh. On the palate, the impression is rather light and pleasant. This Premier Cru Classé is all in all quite astonishing that you can drink with pleasure if you come across a good bottle...

Château Margaux

A privilege to bear the name of its appellation Margaux, for Château Margaux there is no doubt ample justification.


For several centuries this Premier Cru Classé has expressed the highest degree of quality of exceptional terroir patiently assembled 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) derive their wealth deep in the soil which is clayey gravelly and particularly dense and thick. The fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, follows 18 to 24 months in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among Bordeaux, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals the delicate taste and opulence, depth and complexity, and exudes a rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruit, suspended by tight tannins that require patient aging before the wine fully expresses itself. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge de Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc de Château Margaux.


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