Since 1954 the French have laws (EU Protected) that state that to have the right to the Margaux appellation of controlled origin, the grapes must come from the area of Margaux, Cantenac, Soussans, Arsac and Labarde.
Grape varieties (Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet-Franc, Carmenère, Merlot Noir, Petit Verdot, Cot or Malbec).
We found a bottle in our local liquor store for $23.
Julienne: “We loved this wine and whilst it costs a little more than our usual table wine we thought that its quality out weighed its cost. Although it did not have the depth of flavor of other aged Margaux I have been lucky enough to try, this was nonetheless very good for the cost.”
We had this Claret with some aged Vermont Cheddar which was a match made in heaven.
