The Elite Collection Case

Château Margaux

 

A 'Premier Cru Classé en 1855', Château Margaux has been the flagship estate of this prestigious appellation for centuries, passed down between successive generations of owners.

Since 1977 the Château has seen a renaissance and reached new heights under the guidance of owner André Mentzelopoulos. Nowadays, the 78 hectares of vines are managed by André's daughter Corinne.

Château Margaux is a sensual, feminine wine with excellent body.

The blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot produces wines which impress with their opulent richness and powerful bouquest of ripe blackcurrant, vanilla oak, spices and violet. The wines of Château Margaux are tannic and full-bodied, and require a good deal of ageing before they reach peak maturity.

CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS

 

Petrus is a wine which has gradually ascended to mythical status. Unlike the other great châteaux, Petrus is not a classic Bordeaux blend - it is the king of the Merlots, with a rich history of outstanding vintages. Petrus is a wine which must be experienced, even if just once in a lifetime, in order to truly understand its sublime potential. The estate is owned by the Moueix family, and its wines are highly exclusive on account of the limited volumes produced and the high prices which result.

The dominant Merlot ( 95% ), combined with just 5% Cabernet Franc, produces wines which are rich, sensual and powerful. The nose carries prominent truffle notes, while on the palate Petrus explodes with velvety-smooth flavour.

CHÂTEAU LATOUR

 

A Premier Cru Classé en 1855, Latour was acquired by the Segur family in the late seventeenth century. The Château's reputation grew steadily in the 19th century.

The Marquis de Segur sold his share of the estate in 1963, and after a period under the ownership of two British companies Latour passed back into French hands in 1993, when it was acquired by François Pinault.

Latour is one of the most consistent elite estates, producing outstanding wines in the lesser years as well as the classic vintages.

The vineyards are planted in 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, producing wines which are powerful, tannic, rich, dense and intense. The exceptional tannic profile means that the wines can be a little tough in their youth, and a good Latour will sometimes require many years of ageing before its tannins soften.

 

CHÂTEAU HAUT-BRION

 

Jean de Pontac acquired Haut-Brion in 1533, founding a winemaking estate which has been passed down through the ages under the stewardship of only four families.

In 1935, the château passed into the possession of the Dillon family.

A Premier Cru Classé en 1855, Haut-Brion is the most prestigious estate in the renowned Pessac-Leognan appellation.

The vineyards are planted with 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc, producing wines which are elegant, silky and aromatically complex. The wines of Haut-Brion are rich and concentrated, superb expressions of the unique character of this terroir.
