History : Known since the 12th century, it is called "La Mothe de Margaux" and does not yet have vineyards. The successive owners of La Mothe de Margaux are of course lords of importance, but it will be necessary to wait for the family of Lestonnac to engage the constitution of the domain as we know it today. It is the Marquis de la Colonilla who built, in 1810, the castle and the buildings of exploitation that one admires still today. In 1977, André Mentzelopoulos bought the estate. He died in 1980, too early and too fast to enjoy the renaissance of his Château Margaux; no owner will have played such a profound role, and in such a short time. Today, his daughter, Corinne is the owner.
