CHATEAU
Chateau Margaux was founded in the 1400's. Once the residence of Edward III, King of England, it was one of the most stately fortified chateaux in Guyenne. Over the centuries, the property changed ownership several times. In 1804, the Marquis of La Colonilla acquired the property, razed the old Gothic manor-house and built in its place the chateau which still stands today.
2004 was born in conditions closely resembling those of 1996: the same unsettled summer weather, the same lovely early autumn, the same rainy harvest… Last minute rain though in no way modifies the body of a wine, nor weakens its muscle; it only takes away a bit of fatness, which gives it a finer silhouette.

75% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 5% petit verdot

Vinified in mostly wooden fermenters18-26 months barrel ageing depending on the vintage with pumping over.Seven to ten rackings depending on the length of time in wood, performed under air pressure and then via candle. Barrels [one third of which are made on a cooperage established on the property] come from a diversity of forests and toasts. The barrels are topped for the first six months.

There is great finesse and above all purity on the nose; in this subtle combination of floral, fruit and spice aromas, all are clearly present but no single aroma dominates. On the palate, the tannic structure is tight-knit, fine and tender. The general impression is firstly balance, precision, freshness and finally an air-light grace which can only be found in great Margaux.
