Chateau Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé (First growth) of Margaux

The wines of Chateau Margaux

In the hands of the family Mentzelopoulos since 1977, Chateau Margaux is the only Premier Grand Cru Classé of the Margaux appellation (1855 classification), and is located in the Bordeaux region, on the left bank of the Gironde. The vineyard, which covers 94 hectares of vines (including 12ha of Sauvignon blanc for white wine), is planted on a gravel, sand and clay soil at a density of 10,000 vine stocks/ha. The vines are about 40 years old and are taken care of in a sustainable agriculture way.

The chateau Margaux has been producing 3 cuvées of Bordeaux red wines including a first wine called Grand Vin de Margaux, and, since 1908, a second wine called Pavillon Rouge, mainly made up of younger vines, and from plots that are different from those of the Grand vin. A third red wine is produced, "Margaux du Château Margaux", with its exceptional 2009 vintage, which was the first to be marketed under this label. In addition to these 3 cuvées of red wines, the Chateau Margaux has been producing a white wine since 1978 (in the Bordeaux appellation) called Pavillon Blanc made entirely of Sauvignon Blanc (100%). The 3 red wines produced by the château are blended wines from 4 different grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), Merlot (20%), Petit Verdot (3%), and Cabernet Franc (2%).  These indicative percentages vary depending on the profile of the vintage and the cuvée.

Of exceptional quality, Chateau Margaux has operated a spectacular recovery that started in 1978 and which, as a result, made it reach the highest level of the 1855 classification. Its best vintages: 2015, 2010, 2009, 2005, 2003, 2000, 1999, 1996, 1995, 1990, 1986, 1985, 1983, 1982, 1961, 1953, Chateau Margaux has really produced exceptional bottles, and has been able to obtain the best tasting marks from the most influential critics. The 1990s and 2000s are decades that brought Château Margaux at the top of the range, with the perfect mark of 100/100 from Parker. The wines produced are deep and have that opulent richness to them. They are extraordinarily complex, with notes of ripe blackcurrant, blueberry, and sometimes violet, vanilla and spicy oak. Chateau Margaux wine is particularly tasty, and endowed with a great potential for ageing (from 10 to 35 years in cellar and over). The purity and elegance of Chateau Margaux wines lead wine lovers from all over the world to seek out these bottles. The second wine Pavillon Rouge is of great quality too. It has a very good ageing potential for a second wine (from 10 to 20 years). The third wine, "Margaux du château Margaux", is of a more supple style. As for the “Pavillon Blanc”, it has the reputation of being one of the best white wines in Bordeaux, and as such it is rare and sought after.
