Grape Vine in Margaux

The most southern of the four large Medoc appellations, Margaux is also the most extensive and is home to more classified estates than any other appellation. With the thinnest and most gravelly soils in the Médoc, the vines planted in this appellation have deep rootstocks that produce wines that are very supple. Lacking in development in the early 1900’s Margaux’ great revival began in the 1970s and is once again worthy of its high status.  The high ratio of plot intermingling highlights the different winemaking and techniques at each estate. Known as the most polished and fragrant wines in Bordeaux, the Margaux wines are typically deep ruby in color, structured and concentrated while delivering a haunting aromatic bouquet and uniquely silky texture.

During the Grand Tasting the Margaux appellation will be represented by Chateau Giscours, Chateau d’Issan and Chateau Palmer. These estates will then be joined by Chateau Margaux for the Gala Dinner.
