MARGAUX

Margaux lays on a soil of white graves - a special kind of gravel brought from the mountains by the river. Margaux (also a female name in France) is the quintessence of the terroir and of the winemaker's work. That is probably the reason why the best châteaux produce also the best wines!

In Margaux,Chateau Margaux produces the most delicate wine of the Médoc. They are 18 Grands Crus Classés (great growths) in Margaux.

Margaux wines have a full-flavored bouquet and a magnificent elegance.
