(06-2017) Medium intensity and mature color. Very intense, fine, fruity, fresh nose with a coffee note. Soft and lively at the same time from the onset, with taste, a touch of old wood in the flavor, a smooth and very slender body, the wine evolves particularly dry, a bit lively, but unbelievable. Here the magic comes from this rare and paradoxical association between softness and nervousness. These perceptions are the same as those found throughout the 2016 vintage. Drink between from 1990 to 2040.

A privilege to bear the name of its appellation Margaux, for Chateau 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.
