Five townships make up this appellation, created in 1954 and composed primarily of Grands Crus Classés from the 1855 classification and Crus Artisans.
Margaux wines distinguish themselves by their rare generosity, an exceptionally elegant, suave, delicate and complex bouquet which perfectly integrates fruity (raspberry, cherry, red current), floral (peppery rose, hyacinth), spicy, and roasted aromas. Cabernet Sauvignon contributes an understated power and fullness, which appear as a pleasing aromatic persistence, devoid of any bitterness or arrogance. These are wines with an excellent and long ageing potential.
These wines are made from blends wherein Cabernet Sauvignon dominates, an to which is added Merlot. Only small quantities of Malbec and Petit Verdot are added, which nonetheless represent important elements of these blends.
