Margaux 2003 from Chateau Dayrem Valentin

Margaux Chateau Deyrem Valentin

Margaux is wine, which comes from the village of the same name located in the heart of the Médoc region of France, which is about 15 miles north of Bordeaux.

The name Margaux is:

1. It is a common name for a female in France.
2. It is the name of the village where the vines are grown
3. It is also the name of the appellation (which encompasses a number of villages including Margaux, Arsca, Labarde, Soussons and Contena) from where the wine comes from.
Chateau Deyrim Valentin is located between 2 Grand Cru classes dating back to the 1730s and is a family run business with the present owners being the 5th generation. The vineyard is run by two sisters, Sylvia and Christelle Sorge and their father Jean Sorge, who also gives his knowledge and experience in running the vineyard.

To make great Margaux, it is necessary to be meticulous in the wine making process. The vines use the traditional double guyots, which is a cut-pruning method, which is done on a yearly basis. The soil where the vines are grown is a deep, sand gravel aggregate, which results in excellent drainage. The vines grow well in this poor, lose, free drainage soil, making the vines strong, which is transferred to the flavours and aromas of this gorgeous red wine, which is perfect for keeping.

The vineyard covers 13 acres of land and grows preliminary Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The grapes are then hand harvested and separated twice, once in the vineyard and the second in the cellars. Vinification is traditional with fermentation temperatures of 28 – 30 degrees. Maceration takes about 3 weeks.

The wines are matured in French oak barrels for 15 months before being bottled. The Chateau produces around 6,000 cases of wine per year. Margaux Cru Borgeois is a typical Merlot Cabernet blend, the wine is plum coloured with a bouquet of ripe fruits, cherries, blackberries and blackcurrant. The wine has firm tannins and a good balance.

You can buy Margaux online in single bottles and as a case of 6 bottles. It is the perfect wine for keeping and therefore, it is ideal as a 1st birthday gift, as christening gift, as well as presents for 18th and 21st birthday wine gifts.
