More about this wine

Château Margaux

Château Margaux

Château Margaux is a Premiere Cru Classé mansion that has been producing wine for several hundred years. In its current form, it was built in the early 19th century. In 1977 it was bought by André Mentzenopoulos, who immediately began a renovation program and invested heavily in the vineyards and winery. Only three years later he died and his daughter, Corinne, became head of Château Margaux, just 27 years old. She hired Paul Pontallier (also 27) for the position of chief oenologist, which turned out to be an extremely insightful move. Under his leadership, the winery makes several legendary harvests and the quality remains constant over the years. The vineyards of Château Margaux are 82 hectares with a dominant Cabernet Sauvignon (75%) and Merlot (20%), and the rest is divided between Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Paul Pontallier is convinced that Cabernet Sauvignon is the variety that contributes the most to the class of his wine. Margaux are famous for their elegant complex of aromas, enviable structure and remarkably long finish. If wine was an actor, imagine the charm, style and finesse of Cary Grant. Winique, right?

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

This is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth - a natural crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. From its origins in Bordeaux, this vine has successfully spread to almost every wine growing country in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon wines always demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, excellent tannic structure and aromas of black berries and spices.
