Estate Location: Margaux, France
The Chateau Margaux estate dates to the 12th century but wine production did not begin in a serious fashion until the 16th century when it was run by the Lestonnac family. The estate consisted of 265 hectares, a third of which was dedicated to grape vines. This same land is used today to produce Bordeaux wines Chateau Margaux is famous for.
Their wines have received numerous awards through the years and was even granted the distinction of Premier Cru in 1855. The estate still holds this status and continually produces some of the most sought-after wine bottles in the world. Four vintages of Bordeaux wine are produced regularly: Grand Vin, Pavillon Rouge, Pavillon Blanc and Margaux. Shop on Drizly to find a bottle Chateau Margaux wine for your next celebration.
