CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1982

MARGAUX GRAND CRU CLASSE

 

Château Margaux is a "first grand cru classé" according to the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855. It produces one of the most prestigious Bordeaux wines, which bears the same name.

 

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes :  oak, vanilla and mineral with scents of violets, sweet tobacco, cedar, dark red and brown fruits

Matching Food : Beef, lamb, game and poultry

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.

Terroir : Among the factors that make up the terroir of the grands crus are in the first place the natural conditions, soil and climate. It is the climate that allows the cultivation of the vine; it is he who in some cases, allows the grapes to acquire a harmonious maturity. In these privileged sites, where the maturation is necessarily slow and random, the soil becomes so important that very small variations, even between two neighboring plots, result in large differences in the quality and typicity of the wines. Without the attention and the passionate work of men, never would a mound of grave, as "privileged" as it may be, have become a great vineyard.
