The origins of this growth can be traced back to the fifteenth century when it was known as Lamothe. In those times the château was fortified and belonged to the Seigneur Monferraud. In 1802 the property was bought by the Marquis de Colonilla who pulled down the old château and built the elegant neo-classical mansion which is so familiar today, a building unique in style and importance in the Medoc, and also a national monument in France.
The wines of Château Margaux have all those qualities which are regarded as being particular to Margaux AC. in the most exalted degree and perfect balance. The delicacy of the early years belies the longevity of these wines which are consistent in their elegance and refinement.
