  • That was the best glass of wine in my life!!! It was a very difficult to make an appointment, even for me - sommelier in London. More than 30 e-mails. But on the finish, it was worth it all my efforts. It is a crème de la crème of the World’s Red Wine Kindom. Interesting tour and amazing taisting. I was very disappointed when I saw a bottle of 2007. I've even made a stupid coments about this vintage. But after taisting I changed my opinion. That was a pick for this Milesime and the best glass of wine in my life.
  • Very first time I experienced their wine was in 1983. Purchased a bottle of 1978 Chateau Marguax Marguax at a restaurant for dinner. I was absolutely stunned as to how marvelous it was. Continued to buy it until 2003 when I bought case. I shared my last bottle with a close group of friends in 2009. It was still fantastic! Would love to buy more, but it's out of my price range now. But everyone should try it at lest once, you'll be glad you did.
  • Nice and well maintained chateau, with the best wines in the world. Unfortunately, it is impossible to come in and see it without time. AND there are no tastings, but it is still an exciting place that one should slip in and see from. You sell wines from the house, in the nearby city and can be ready abefales.
  • We didn't do a guided tour as there's a month long wait list but it was still worth visiting on our own!
  • Awesome!
