Tasting notes:A remarkable wine from the Margaux appellation, Le Château Margaux is renowned the world over. Extraordinary, it owes all its qualities to its unique terroir and the passionate work of the men who strive to make it exceptional. Adorned with a sumptuous ruby-red color with tiled highlights, the 1999 vintage expresses a nose of great finesse in the glass. Subtly blending evolved notes of red fruit and vanilla. On the palate, the attack is rich, followed by a full, dense structure. The elegant tannic structure is perfectly integrated. The finish, with its morello cherry aromas, comes to rest like velvet at the end of the tasting.

About the Winery:

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.
