  • This is a large production estate for Bordeaux and it has a number of different styles of vats (oak, steel, concrete) and the staff is friendly. You don't really get as much information on wine as the...  more »
  • Our group had a chance to visit Chateau Margaux during the harvest. This is a beautiful place and the vineyards are outstanding. I think this is one of the best parts of our visit to the area.  more »
  • Being an avid wine lover since early 70's, it was a dream to get to visit a 1st growth Bordeaux. It took a little work, as they prefer to only give tours to distributors, but it was worth the many ema...  more »

  • 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.
  • Was a very difficult to make an appointment, even for me - a head sommelier at Buddha-bar, London. More than 30 e-mails. But on the finish, it was worth it all my efforts. But cost them one ☆ less in my rating. It is a crème de la crème of the World’s Red Wine Kindom. Interesting tour and amazing taisting.
  • 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!
