It’s amazing when you realize that the birth of what we know of as Chateau Margaux dates back almost 1,000 years! In the 12th century, the property was known under the name of “La Mothe de Margaux,” which was reserved for use by royalty. However, vineyards were not yet part of the estate in those days.

The successive owners of La Mothe de Margaux were various people of noble birth. When the Lestonnac family took over, the estate started resembling the property we know of as Chateau Margaux today. Pierre de Lestonnac, over a ten-year period, from 1572 to 1582, restructured the property and moved it from growing grain to producing wine.

Tasting Notes

This is a stunning Chateau Margaux, made in a sexy, up-front, elegant style, with deep creme de cassis fruit intermixed with spring flowers, a solid inner core of richness and depth, but again, very sweet tannins as well as striking minerality and elegance.
