2010 Bordeaux Futures: Margaux Value Wines

Continuing with our series of posts on 2010 Bordeaux futures value wines, today, we will look at Margaux, which is about an hour drive northwest from the city of Bordeaux.

The Margaux AOC is known for its perfumed wines of elegance and finesse. The soils of Margaux are shallow, predominately gravel, and offer good drainage – a perfect environment for grape growing.

The top classified growths – especially Chateaux Margaux and Palmer – tend to be expensive, but here are a few Margaux wines you can pick up for $50 or less. (Prices current as of 7/13/2011.)
