  • What are the particularities of Margaux wines?

Margaux is a French red wine produced in the communes of Margaux, Cantenac, Soussans, Labarde and Arsac. It is the southernmost appellation of the Médoc, and one of the most prestigious. The commonly accepted image is that of feminine, silky wines. The Margaux vineyard is the largest of the communal appellations of the Médoc, covering more than 1500 hectares. The Margaux appellation is also the one with the largest number of Grands Crus Classés (1855 classification): There are 21 of them, including a Premier Grand Cru classé: Château Margaux. The two celebrities of the Margaux AOC are the Château Margaux and the Château Palmer but other Margaux Cru Classés produce wines of very high quality: Rauzan-Segla, Brane Cantenac, Issan, Lascombes, Giscours, etc ... You will also find superb unclassified Margaux wines but producing wines of very good value for money, such as the château Labegorce, Château Bel-Air Marquis d'Aligre or the château Siran.

  • How do you taste a Margaux?

The taste, character and style of Margaux wine are very varied due to its massive size and the diversity of its soils. Not being the most concentrated, powerful or tannic wines of Bordeaux, they can be the most elegant, sensual, refined and fragrant. With scents of flowers, especially violets and lilacs, the wines also offer at maturity: truffle, cigar box, earth, cherry, plum and tobacco aromas. While the levels of concentration, maturity, and depth vary considerably, depending on the terroir and the winemaker's desire, the tannins can display unparalleled levels of elegance. However, don't let this sweetness fool you into thinking that these wines don't age well. The best Margaux wines can age gracefully for several decades. An old vintage can be enjoyed without a decanter, but only with the cork opened and the bottle left to rest in the open air for a minimum of one hour.
