Wine Region: Bordeaux - France Grape: Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
Tasting notes: Very dense wine which blossoms after a few moments revealing complex aromas of black fruits, spices and flowers. This very pure nose is followed by a fresh, smooth palate, all in balance and finesse. The tannins are present, tight, but can be forgotten as their silky texture is remarkable, even on such a young wine.
About the winery: Chateau Margaux is one of those legendary Grands Crus that have been fundamental in the establishment of Bordeaux's reputation. A landmark period for Margaux, known as the estate's "golden age" began with the recognition of the Grand Cru abroad, thanks to the influence of the English and Dutch. From then on, its reputation was confirmed when the estate obtained the title of "Premier Grand Cru Classe" in the official classification of 1855. Margaux was the only one of the four chateaux present to obtain a score of twenty out of twenty.
Following in her father's footsteps after his untimely death, Corinne Mentzelopoulos took control of the family business, injecting her own energy and passion into the Chateau Margaux estate, which has become a Bordeaux masterpiece.
