Château Margaux was one of the first four estates to be named a First Growth (Premier or 1er Cru Classé) in the Bordeaux Classification of 1855, and continues to be one of the most prestigious wines in all of France. The estate, then known as “La Mothe de Margaux,” was founded in the early 12th century on the left bank of the Garonne estuary in the Médoc. In 1152, Eleanor of Aquitaine married Henry Plantagenet, the future Henry II of England, which made Aquitaine (Bordeaux and environs) English property until the end of the 100 Years War in 1453. For over a couple of centuries, this ensured the sale and trade of Bordeaux wines, Margaux included, to the English market. The royal family and assorted English nobility became huge fans as a result. In the 1570s, Pierre de Lestonnac overhauled the estate and vineyards, clearing grain in favor of grapevines, and propelled the future success of the wines. By the beginning of the 18th century, there were some 265 hectares under Read more »

  • Château Tayac Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2000

    Snoothrank:

    I received a bottle of your 1993 Chateau Tayac Margaux several years ago and the bottle has been in cellar storage until two weeks ago. Opening up the bottle, letting it breath, nosing the glass, sifting the wine... fabulous. Whishing I had several more.

  • Château Boyd-Cantenac Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2005

    Snoothrank:

    One of the best Margauxs of the 05 vintage for early consumption, in addition to keeping locked up in the cellar for decades. Loads of dark, smokey fruit. Good acidity and tannins that are solid, yet seductive, a long finish and a very memorable wine. Most of the bottles I bought, I already consumed, because it's just that good ! One of the be...

  • Château Ferrière Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 1995

    Snoothrank:

    Opened the 1995 tonight, it started with an incredible aroma of chocolate, tabacco and potentially mushroom-- really wonderful and complex. However, the initial sip was almost tasteless, the only hint of things to come was that at the tail end it gave up some flavor. Did not decant the bottle because I did not want to quickly tire the wine, and... Read More

  • Château Ferrière Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted September 2009: A marvelous wine, with that tell-tale Margaux nose and flavour. Medium-deep colour which has just begun to mature, a very refined, deep and at the same time intensely perfumed bouquet. Slender, graceful in the mouth, with a very tasty dry tannic structure, excellent concentration and a long finish with lip-licking acidity.... Read More
