Producer's description

The history of Chateau Margot goes back to the 12th century, although the building that can be seen today on the labels was built only in the 19th century. Passing from one noble owner to another, the estate began to take on its present appearance only at the end of the 16th century, when it was acquired by the Lestonnac family. It was under Pierre de Lestonnac from 1572 to 1582 that vineyards were planted instead of grain crops on most of the lands of the chateau. Of particular note is the figure of the steward Berlon, who at the beginning of the 18th century insisted that white and red grapes be planted and vinified separately, and the harvest was carried out in the afternoon, when the dew dries. He also paid great attention to the characteristics of the terroir and knew its best parts. It was under Berlon that excellent wines began to be produced in the chateau, which, during a blind tasting of Bordeaux wines in 1855, were classified as Premier Grand Cru Classe and scored 20 points out of 20 possible.
