After the grapes are picked by hand, the wine is vinified traditionally in steel vats at a temperature maintained between 28 and 34°C to encourage the aromas. The wine is pumped over twice a day, with or without aeration. Maceration lasts between 4 and 5 weeks. The wine is then aged in new French oak barrels for 12 months.
Margaux is sheltered in the heart of the Médoc vineyard like a jewel protected in its velvet case. Margaux, meaning “pearl” in ancient Greek, is reputed to be the most feminine of Médoc wines because of its delicate nature and unrivalled charm.
