Bordeaux Margaux wines tend to be deep ruby in color, perfumed and floral, particularly with notes of violets and lilacs, and soft, silky tannins.
Less masculine and powerful than wines from other regions of Bordeaux, Margaux wines are typically more refined and elegant.
Margaux is the furthest south appellation in the Médoc in Bordeaux’s Left Bank and boasts many soil types, including limestone, chalk, clay, sand and gravel, meaning style and quality of Margaux can vary dramatically.
The best Margaux wines come from grapes planted on gravel soils with good drainage.
