Château Margaux 2007 1er Cru Margaux

The famous Château Margaux sits at the end of one of the most photographed lines of trees in the wine world. It makes arguably the most famous red wine in existence, from a meagre 85 ha of pristine vines spread across several plots in the heartland of Margaux. Balancing the power of Cabernet Sauvignon with a softness and beguiling succulence that is breath-taking at first sip, this is a claret Tour de force!

Château Margaux

Château Margaux, a Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux, is one of the most famous wines in the world. Care has been lavished on the property by a line of owners with an abiding concern for the reputation of the estate. For more than five hundred years, season after season, generations of vineyard-workers, grape harvesters, cellar-workers, coopers and many other craftsmen have all played a part in making Château Margaux what it is today: a wine with an incomparable personality, reflected in the elegant Palladian building which adorns its label. In 1977, the estate was purchased by the late André Mentzelopoulos, and it is now run by his daughter, Corinne Mentzelopoulos.

Tasting Notes

Wonderful ower and depthe reflected on the nose and palate with lots of ripe, intense fruit. The fabulous flavours of fruit, spice and oak are complex and delicate. Lovely length.

Food Matches

Lovely paired with a tender Chateaubriand, cooked to perfection, or even beef fillet, grilled with a dollop of pepper sauce and Bernaise potatoes

Press Comments

"The elegant 2007 Chateau Margaux’s purity, depth of fruit, and overall equilibrium are impressive. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of spring flowers, black currants, and blackberries, a soft, lush, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and delicacy allied to impressive depth, texture, and length. Already drinkable, it should continue to offer exceptional pleasure for 15 or more years." Wine Advoate 92
