CHATEAU MARGAUX, 2021

PRIMEURS - LIVRAISON 2024

" The 2021 Château Margaux is clearly one of the finest wines of the vintage. Offering up a deep bouquet of raspberries, wild blueberries and plums mingled with sweet spices, violets, licorice and hints of cigar box, it's full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with terrific depth at the core and beautifully refined, powdery tannins, concluding with a long, floral finish. Combining the vibrant flavors and moderate alcohol (13.1%) of a vintage of the last century with all the precision of the present in extraction and élevage, it is a timeless classic; and lest that be mistaken for a euphemism for a lack of concentration, note that the wine is analytically as high in polyphenols as the brilliant 2019. Representing only 36% of the estate's production, the 2021 is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. " - Parker

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.
