Margaux is a long-distinguished wine region in Bordeaux with evidence of vineyard cultivation dating back to the Roman period. It now has over 1,500 hectares of vineyards and with new winemaking techiques and more focussed cultivation is experiencing a resurgence in the release of world-renowned wines. The Bordeaux red blends hailing from Margaux are noted for their floral aromas, particularly that of violets, sensuous textures, and flavours of dark berries.
The vineyards of Margaux are focussed on cultivating red wine varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon is the primary planting with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. There are also plantings of Malbec and Carmenere. The finest wines from the region are velvety with a pure fruitiness.
