Château Margaux

Tasting notes

95 Points - The Wine Advocate

”The 2014 Château Margaux represents 36% of the year’s total production and is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Affording the glass five to ten minutes to open, the aromatics are very similar to those expressed out of barrel, those dark cherries and violets, tightly wound at first but unfurling beautifully and seemingly with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin and it appears to have fomented a little more finesse during its élevage. There is wonderful mineral tension and dash of spiciness on the persistent finish. There remains some tightness here, the implication that this is a Château Margaux determined to give long-term pleasure. Therefore, do not be afraid to give it a decade in the cellar"Neal Martin

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Château Margaux, at the heart of the village of the same name, is one of Bordeaux’s greatest estates, and also one of its largest. Covering 260 hectares, the park and its exquisite Palladian mansion house are as well known a wine landmark as any other the world over. 87 hectares are planted to vine, with the celebrated Pavilion Blanc being produced from a further 12 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc.

    But it is the red Grand Vin that makes Château Margaux so special. The most elegant and floral of the great properties of Bordeaux and one of the original four Premier Grands Crus Classés, it epitomises the style of the commune.

    “There cannot be a better bottle than a bottle of Margaux.”Thomas Jefferson

    With a history dating back to the 12th Century, Château Margaux has been in the hands of the Mentzelopoulos family since 1978 and since then has consistently produced the finest wines in the Médoc. Now under the leadership of Madame Corinne Mentzelopoulos, recent developments have included a fabulous new cellar designed by Norman Foster, sympathetically dug into and blending with the surrounding countryside.

    The whole world seems to have their eyes riveted on Bordeaux, where the demand for these great wines never stops growing.
