The region of Margaux resides northwest of the city of Bordeaux, on the Left Bank of the Gironde River, and is the furthest south of the wine regions in the Médoc area.  At 3,200 acres, Margaux is the largest of the Médoc regions, and each year it produces nearly 9.5 million bottles of wine.  The region produces almost exclusively red wine, which is famous for the consistent delicacy of its bouquet.

The soil in Margaux is high in gravel, with lower amounts of clay than seen in neighboring regions, resulting in expedient drainage, and decreased nutrient levels.  This leads to wines that are supple, balanced, and gently aromatic, derived predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot grapes.  Margaux wines are medium to full bodied, with aromas of red fruits, toast, coffee, and truffle.
