Reviews

WS

Wine Spectator
Elegant, complex, seductive and beautifully balanced, with gorgeous plum, raspberry, currant and cedar aromas that hint at all sorts of exotic spices and chocolate on the exceedingly long, smoky finish. A classic, smoothly integrated wine that has the balance to develop well past 2000.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Margaux
One of the great winegrowing regions of all time, this Bordeaux commune lies in the Médoc appellation, north of the town of Bordeaux. Margaux's claim to fame is its "white graves" soil, consisting of gravel brought by the river from the mountains. There are 18 Grands Crus Classés in Margaux, with Château Margaux producing the most highly regarded wines of the Médoc. Margaux wines are traditionally elegant with a full-flavored bouquet.

Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
