Originally dating from the 12th century, Château Margaux roots took firm hold in the 16th century with the arrival of the Lestonnac Family. By the beginning of the 18th century the estate comprised 650 acres, with a third devoted to vineyards. Château Margaux on the left bank in Bordeaux is one of the rare First Growths, which was the first to be sold at auction by Christies and declared a favorite of Thomas Jefferson. The Mentzelopoulos family bought Château Margaux in 1976 and have lovingly restored the vineyards, chais and maison while producing some of the most exceptional wines made in Bordeaux today.
In this tasting, led by Deputy Managing Director Aurelien Valance and direct from Château Margaux’s cellars, we will explore all the facets of the estate including 2009 Pavillon Rouge, the ultra-rare 2012 Pavillon Blanc, and Chateau Margaux 2009, 2005, 2000, 1999, 1996 and the legendary 1990.
