Château Margaux is arguably the grandest, most impressive and imposing building in the Médoc. It’s often called the ‘Versailles of Médoc’ due to its Neo-Palladian style of architecture.

Margaux is a Premier Cru (First Growth) estate on the left bank of the Garonne. Its lands were producing wine in the 15th century with the names ‘Margou’ and ‘Margous’ being used by local wine merchants. The Lestonnac family really brought wine production to the fore on the estate with a marriage into the Château Haut-Brion family in 1654 that helped Château Margaux to raise its quality levels.

It was in the UK that the estate’s reputation began to grow abroad, with The London Gazette advertising barrels of ‘Margose’ Bordeaux first growths in 1705. English Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole was a regular customer and in 1771 Margaux was one of the first wines to be sold by Christie’s auction house in London. Then in 1787, Thomas Jefferson noted that Château Margaux was one of ‘four vineyards of first quality’. Sadly, the estate then went on to suffer a period of neglect and upheaval around the French Revolution resulting in a dip in its prestige, but through good management they turned things around and obtained their Premier cru status in 1855.

After another period of chequered ownership in the 20th century, it wasn’t until 1977 that the estate returned to the big time when Greek supermarket and retail mogul André Mentzenopoulos obtained the estate. After ruffling a few feathers along the way, the first ‘Héllene in the Médoc’ passed the reins to daughter Corrine in 1980 upon his untimely death.

Château Margaux’s grand vins often exceed $1000 a bottle, as a testament to the continued rise of this historic, iconic estate. Château Margaux’s whopping 262 hectares produce mainly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pavillon Blanc also in the mix.

OUR VERDICT:

A historic and beautiful château which in the last 30 or so years has consistently produced the wines to match. There is no mistaking the perfumed beauty of Margaux for the other left bank First Growths and its increasing reliance on Cabernet Sauvignon in the current warmer epoch has produced a jewel-like clarity, lustre and purity in recent vintages. Unforgettable and occasionally haunting wines.
