Spread over 1,400 hectares, Margaux is known for crafting feminine and highly aromatic 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 celebrated for their balance and finesse. Though constantly in evolution, they will always be sophisticated and dignified.
Margaux in 2015:
Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: Spring in Bordeaux was unusually mild in 2015. The months of May, June and July were subsequently warm and dry, allowing the vines to develop rapidly. Early August the grapes achieved veraison evenly and consistently. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, allowing the grapes to build aromatic complexity and power before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be a long-lived one.
