Like other great Bordeaux wines, Château Margaux should be served at room temperature, between 15-18C. As far as decantation is concerned, it is only required for more mature wines, while for young wines, a little aeration is sufficient. As an accompaniment, red meat dishes are most suitable, be it beef medallions or lamb in herbs. Game, stuffed poultry, foie gras, pâtés, Parma ham and mature blue cheeses are also suitable as a gastronomic pair.

An extraordinary bouquet reveals multi-faceted tones of blackcurrant liqueur, intertwined with hints of white flowers, licorice and notes of espresso and toasted oak.
The magnificent Chateau Margaux of 2000 is distinguished by its amazing purity and fullness, as well as pleasant acidity and a fantastically long aftertaste that lasts almost 70 seconds. In a complex bouquet, black currant tones are replaced by layers of dried fruits, toasts, as well as light notes of coffee, licorice and oak.
