The celebrated appellation of Margaux is also the only one to carry the same name as a Grand Cru Classé estate. Spread over 1,400 hectares, Margaux is known for crafting feminine wines grown on gravelly terroir.
Like its other Left Bank neighbors, Margaux wines are made from a majority of cabernet sauvignon, with merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot in varying proportions. The wines of Margaux are a study in balance and finesse. Though constantly in evolution, Margaux will always be sophisticated and dignified.
2015 in Margaux
Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
