Description

Margaux, the much-loved appellation of Bordeaux’s Left Bank, is home to a remarkable number of the classed growths from Napoleon’s 1855 Classification. However, the most revered (and fittingly named), is its flagship First Growth: Château Margaux. While ranked as a Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1855, the Château’s history is rich, and begins centuries before achieving the ranking we know it for today. Since the twelfth century the appellation was called “La Mothe de Margaux”, meaning “The Mound of Margaux”. While being called a mound is not exactly a fancy term, in a rather planar region like the Médoc, any elevation, even if merely a mound, was noteworthy!

Food Pairing The ideal dish would have been a simply roast leg of lamb with possibly a gratin dauphinoise (cream and potatoes flatter most old reds).
