1er Cru Classé en 1855
Once the residence of Edward III, King of England, Château Margaux is one of the world's most magestic châteaux !
The Mentzelopoulus family bought the property in 1978 and Chateau Margaux has been considered as one of the best wines in Bordeaux ever since. The 90 hectare property, situated in the centre of the Margaux appellation, produces over 30,000 cases per year.
Pavillon Rouge and Pavillon Blanc du Chateau Margaux, made from the younger vines, offer an exciting introduction to the Grand Vin.
