“Soft, elegant, feminine… these are words often used to describe the wines of Margaux. It sits about 20 km north of the city of Bordeaux and lies next to the Gironde River. This appellation lays on a soil of white graves - a special kind of gravel brought from the mountains by the river.
With a large percent of Cabernet Sauvignon as its base, Margaux wine is big and bold. It also has a very delicate - often referred to as feminine - bouquet. France officially designated this as a separate region or AOC in 1954."
Take a journey through this region whose wines are amongst Bordeaux’ most sensual and alluring. Eight voluptuous Margaux wines: Brane Cantenac 2001; Pavillon Rouge de Chateau Margaux 2003; Siran 2006; Du Tertre 2007; Rauzan Segla 2004; Giscours 2005; La Tour de Bessan 2008; Alter Ego de Palmer 2009, will take your breath away this Saturday, November 30, 4:00pm-6:00pm at Wine Story Serendra.
