Histoire et anecdotes

The history of the Château dates back to the 13th century when it was a fortress known as “Château de la Mothe Margaux”, the word “motte” meant “small hill” which is a rare relief on the Medoc plain. In the 15th century, the vineyard was structured thanks to the Lestonnac family, which anticipated the Medoc agricultural turn, abandoning cereal farming towards vine-growing. In 1855, the vineyard was classified as Premier Grand Cru in the 1855 classification. The estate was sold to André Mentzelopoulos in 1977, he started important modernization works. Nowadays, his daughter Corinne, keeps working on her father’s creation.
