Ex-Château

Located on the left bank of the Gironde, situated on the far South in the Médoc, the appellation of Margaux is home to more than twenty one classified growths, more than any other appellation in the region. The overall wines of Margaux are the essence of sophistication accompanied by other unique floral characteristics, such as violet and lilac. The wines from this area encapsulate a sensuous, elegant aroma with hints of ripe plum, cassis and truffle.

Believed to have been harvested first by the Romans as early as 2,000 years ago, Margaux was the first Bordeaux Appellation made into vineyards. This wine region spans across 1,413 hectares of vineyards which ripen around seven to ten days before the rest of the surrounding region, and are protected by forest to the West that provides cover from the cold Atlantic breeze. The soil type of Margaux is the thinnest soil in the Médoc with a high gravel content allowing good drainage which is essential to maintaining the quality of fruit at harvest. The main grapes particular to that area include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
