  • History and things to know about Château Margaux?

Chateau Margaux, owned by Corinne Mentzelopoulos since 2003, is a renowned 92-hectare vineyard estate, including 78 hectares of vines, located in the commune of Margaux, in the Médoc. Chateau Margaux produces one of the most prestigious Bordeaux wines. It is found as premier grand cru classé in the 1855 classification, as did the Chateau Lafite Rothschild, the Chateau Latour, the Château Mouton-Rothschild and the Château Haut-Brion. Château Margaux is one of the most prestigious properties in France. Since this year, Corinne's daughter, Alexandra Petit-Mentzelopoulos becomes the ambassador of the Château Margaux.

In 1977, the new owner of Château Margaux is Andre Mentzelopoulos. This visionary man, during the period of crisis for Bordeaux, invested in drainage and replanting, without any promise of immediate profitability. With the help of his oenologist, Emile Peynaud, he relaunched the second wine of the Château Margaux: the "Pavillon Rouge" and the "Pavillon Blanc", with an increase in the selection. In addition, his actions were also concentrated on the breeding in new barrels and the ambition to build the first large buried cellar in the region. The result was a Chateau Margaux that had regained all its renown and an exceptional quality of wine. We can also highlight the 1978 vintage. As well as all those who followed this vintage. No weakness is to be noted, even in the smaller years. The Château Margaux 1982 is particularly noteworthy: it will still be talked about in 20 years.

1980, an important date for the Château Margaux, the year André Mentzelopoulos died. It is his daughter, Corinne Mentzelopoulos, who will succeed this master winemaker and take over the management of the estate. Following this, we have seen some very great vintages for the Château Margaux.

In 1993, Corinne unites with the Italian family Agnelli (Fiat). The association will continue for 10 years and, in 2003, the Agnelli group sold its shares of the Château Margaux to Corinne, who becomes the sole owner.

  • How are the wines of Château Margaux?

The estate has 82 hectares of vines, with Cabernet Sauvignon inevitably dominating (75%) and 20% Merlot making up most of the rest, with a handful of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Exceptionally in Margaux, there is a white wine made here, Pavillon Blanc, from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, while the two red wines are, of course, Château Margaux and Pavillon Rouge. As a rule, about 30,000 cases of red wine are produced, with the Great Wine generally accounting for just over 40% of the total. White wine production is less than 3,000 cases.

We find in the grand vin Chateau Margaux particular qualities: finesse, an elegant wine, a certain complexity, density, intensity, length and freshness.

The Château Margaux has been elected best wine of the 2015 vintage!
