Along with Lafite, Latour and Haut-Brion, it was rated as a first growth in the original 1855 Bordeaux Classification of the Médoc. Generally, Margaux is considered as the most elegant of the first growths, and is consistently one of the most expensive wines in the world. The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend is complimented with small portions of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Château Margaux's vineyards have a complex combination of soils that are unique to the area. These consist of chalky clay under a top layer of coarse and fine gravels, which is well-suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, which accounts for around 75 percent of plantings. Merlot makes up a further 20 percent, with the rest planted to Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. As is typical for top Bordeaux estates, the vineyard is densely planted at 10,000 vines per hectare. There are also 12 hectares (30 acres) of Sauvignon Blanc to make Margaux's white offering, Pavillon Blanc, which must be sold as Bordeaux AOP, not Margaux. This compliments the Pavillon Rouge the second wine of which production dates back to the beginning of the 16th Century.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-02-08T14:57:37-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-02T09:05:22-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","Other_Wine","Producer_Chateau Margaux","Region_Bordeaux","RK0202","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":459899,"price_min":459899,"price_max":459899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42758894977162,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1959 | Chateau Margaux | Margaux","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":459899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/19_19360da1-39e9-47d8-91a7-2eb5bd1477e0.png?v=1675346772"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/19_19360da1-39e9-47d8-91a7-2eb5bd1477e0.png?v=1675346772","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1959 | Chateau Margaux | Margaux at CaskCartel.com","id":24138245996682,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.347,"height":343,"width":119,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/19_19360da1-39e9-47d8-91a7-2eb5bd1477e0.png?v=1675346772"},"aspect_ratio":0.347,"height":343,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/19_19360da1-39e9-47d8-91a7-2eb5bd1477e0.png?v=1675346772","width":119}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1959 | Chateau Margaux | Margaux\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSuperbly balanced, with lovely, elegant fruit flavors.
