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 Margaux on Snooth

  • Margaux Prieure Lichine Margaux 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Attractive depth on the nose which reveals tobacco, briar and aromas of fruit that are a bit on the wild side. Showing big crushed berry fruit on entry, this is rich and plump with fine tannins. Polished, very civilized with a bit of power to it, though the finish is soft an elegant. Texturally this is quite appealing, and there is attractive de... Read More

  • Château Marquis de Terme Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Big fruit on the nose, deep and rich smelling, with floral and spicy aromas that are almost middle Eastern spicy. Smooth and big in the mouth, this lacks a touch of stuffing for its size, and may grow into itself buts remains a touch one dimensional today. There is lots of fruit today, and this is rather tough and tannic at that, so there is a l... Read More

  • Giscours Margaux 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit funky on the nose though with lovely integration to the smoke tinged and lightly spiced, crushed berry fruit. Tight on entry though very well balanced, this opens slowly and never fully reveals itself though one can see the fine integration, depth and power here with mineral notes emerging on the backend along with lots of ripe, slightly d...

  • I could only find recent vintages, in the close to $100 range.  I couldn't find older vintages or valuations.  Too bad you found it in a cupboard.  If you aren't needing to pay the mortgage with it, I suggest trying it with someone who knows Bordeaux.  Hopefully it's still okay. Read More
