Classified as one of the original First Growths in the Classification of 1855, Château Margaux enjoys a storied reputation, as evidenced by the estate being occupied since at least the 12th century and vines being present since 1570. The stunning present Château was built in the “neo-Palladian” style in 1810 by famed architect Louis Combes on order of the Marquis de Collonia. The Château was also one of the favorites of Thomas Jefferson, who proclaimed of Château Margaux that “there couldn’t be a better Bordeaux bottle”. Château Margaux produces four wines: the Grand Vin Château Margaux, a second wine Pavillon Rouge de Château Margaux, third wine Margaux du Château Margaux and a white made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc called Pavillon Blanc de Château Margaux. The reds are typically a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, along with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
