Chateau Margaux, Grand Vin​ 1969

From the Margaux Appellation (to which it gives its name) in the Medoc sub-region on the left-bank of the Bordeaux, where Cabernet Sauvignon is dominant (though Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec are all permissable). This 1er Grand Cru Classe dates back to the 12th century when it was know as “La Mothe de Margaux” and is steeped in history, haveing been drank by Thomas Jefferson who famously declared  “There couldn’t be a better Bordeaux bottle”

The Margaux vineyard for the production of red wine is planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. This shows a marked increase in the amount of Cabernet Sauvignon planted in the vineyards. The final blend on average usually contains close to 85% Cabernet Sauvignon in most vintages. On average, the vines are 35 years of age. However, there are parcels with very Cabernet Sauvignon vines, which are close to 80 years of age.

Please note general condition of this bottle, including labels, fill level and seal.
