Margaux

Geology

The soil consists of a plateau of gravel and silt on a layer of limestone or silt on clay. Margaux is the only one in the Médoc to enjoy such a complex and rich soil.

Grape varieties

The richness of the soil is honored by the presence of Cabernet Sauvignon, emblematic grape of the Médoc, thus contributing to the elegance and finesse of the wines of Margaux. It is matched by merlot while the other grape varieties are only marginal.

Particularity

The wines have a subtle bouquet that combines delicate fruity, floral and spicy aromas.

Symbol of French refinement and elegance, this Premier Cru contains an identity full of sweetness and wisdom. Known since the 17th century as one of the greatest wines in the world, Château Margaux owes its unique qualities to the genius of its terroir and the passionate work of a succession of generations. 

The history of Château Margaux dates back to 1815, when the Marquis de la Colonilla built this magnificent castle with Greek columns and peristyle. In 1977, André Mentzelopoulos, then owner of Félix Potin stores, acquires the estate.

The history of this Third Cru dates back to the early 19th century, when it was founded by Charles Palmer. Over the years, the estate changed owners several times until 1938, when it was acquired by the Sichel family, who still owns and operates it today.

Château Palmer’s noble philosophy is based on a simple desire: to reveal the elegance and purity of a complex terroir. In a resolutely forward-looking approach, Château Palmer was one of the pioneers in introducing biodynamics to the vineyard in 2008.

94-96 RP

In the town of Labarde, since the sixteenth century, Château Giscours benefits from a unique soil giving particularly colorful and full-bodied wines with a character quite different from the wines of the northern part of the appellation. This partly explains his title of 3rd Grand Cru Classé obtained in 1855.

 

Its name resonates in the most beautiful tables of France as a synonym of finesse and elegance.
