Chateau Margaux has been known to produce prestigious wines for centuries. The prestigious vineyard located on gravel hilltop stretches 87 hectares (approx. 215 acres) and continues to benefit from unique conditions. The 2011 Chateau Margaux blend is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, but also Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc.
Cabernets Sauvignon add unusual strength and energy which is balanced with a lot of sweetness. Though concentrated, this red from Bordeaux carries very subtle tannins; barely detectable.
