Chateau Margaux

Château Margaux
, interplanetary symbol of wine, has a very old reputation. In the 15th century, it was known as Lamothe, a fortified castle site in Bordeaux region. In 1750, Mr de Fumel planted a large quantity of fine grape-variety. In 1802, it was brought by the Marquis de la Colonilla, who razed the old castle to the ground and built a new one.

The vineyard of Château Margaux covers about 100 hectares (250 acres) carefully cultivated. Learn more about Margaux wines

The grape-varieties are 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

The Château produces slightly over 300,000 bottles every year.

The quality dropped in the 70's, but the 1978 vintage distinguished itself by its quality. Ever since there has not been any weakness even in the small years.

It is unnecessary to praise those wines; their reputation is universal.
