Margaux Wine Region Guide

Where Majestic Châteaux Meet the Irresistible Allure of Bordeaux's Most Beguiling Red Nectar


Last updated: January 30, 2024


Margaux. The very mention of this venerable region conjures up some of the most powerful imagery in Bordeaux – of stately châteaux, captivating perfume, and long-lived wines of incomparable finesse. Driving through the region, you will be suitably impressed by Château Palmer’s grandeur, Château Margaux’s majesty, and the moated Château of Issan. It also boasts about one-third of all the classified growths in Bordeaux; its reputation for producing exquisite red wine is appreciated worldwide.

Of course, like all appellations, Margaux boasts prestigious châteaux, underwhelming estates, and properties representing real bargains – Château Angludet springs to mind. Yet Margaux is seldom cheap, and the wines can turn out thin in poor years. In good and great years, however, all the stories about the virtues of Margaux are justified. There is a haunting delicacy about archetypal Margaux and intoxicating perfume that can make it the most beguiling claret of all. There isn’t a connoisseur alive who can resist a glass of this red nectar.
