2007 Château Margaux, 1er Cru Margaux

With only 32% of the crop used for the Grand Vin this was the most severe selection ever at Margaux. All the various plots of the vineyard were used in the assemblage of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and just 2% Cabernet Franc. The colour is deep and vivid and the nose offers dark fruits, cassis and a touch of liquorice. The fresh, medium-bodied palate displays good intensity and the tannins are integrated and finely tuned. The Margaux elegance and finesse shines through in this testament to the rigour of the selection. Outstanding medium term drinking.

Château Margaux

Château Margaux, is the most important château in the appellation of the same name. Its legendary reputation is as strong today as it was when it was first classified as a First Growth and it has remained a sought after name in the fine wine world. Its five century long legacy began on the landmark of the ‘Mothe de Margaux,’ a small gravel outcrop in an otherwise flat region. The well-drained soils became the perfect place for vines to flourish, allowing Château Margaux to establish its first-class reputation.

It has been owned by the Mentzelopoulos family since 1977 and has seen a wealth of Bordeaux experience pass through its cellars. Consultant Oenologist Emile Peynaud advised in the 1970s and in 1983 Paul Pontallier was hired as winemaker where he stayed until his sad passing in 2015. Prominent architect Sir Norman Foster designed the underground cellar and tasting rooms, research centre and wine production facility.
