Producer Notes

The classic image of a Bordeaux chateau building is probably that of Chateau Margaux, considered the most elegant of the first growths. Ernest Hemingway’s granddaughter was named after the Chateau and the 1945 vintage is apparently the tipple of choice for Batman. After the 1940s, Margaux went through something of a slump in quality to the extent that it was barely economically viable by the early 70s. Since then though, it has come back to its former form and is now back in its rightful place at the summit of wine. The blend is 75% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and a little of the rest, and two other wines are made here: Pavillon Rouge, the second wine, and Pavillon Blanc, a small production 100% sauvignon dry white wine.
