Being an avid wine lover since early 70's, it was a dream to get to visit a 1st growth Bordeaux. It took a little work, as they prefer to only give tours to distributors, but it was worth the many emails. Visiting wineries in Bordeaux on your own is not like going to Napa, you have to carefully plan and... More

Great tour of the chateau winery and very welcoming. The wine is very reasonable and good. Excellent time seeing the entire wine making process and touring the grounds.

We had a very complete tour of the entire estate and learned about the gentle vinification of Chateau Margaux wines. Must make are serration prior to arrival.

Visited Chateau Margaux as part of the wine tour of the Bordeaux region that I was on. Started the tour visiting the new winery and receiving and sorting area of the vineyard. Believe me it's a absolutely a marvel in architectural creativity... Not only is it very practical but very futuristic... Visited the new facility commissioned this year and then... More

There are insufficient superlatives to describe the experience. Incredibly beautiful buildings (including a new "chai "designed by Norman Foster) , fantastically knowledgeable staff, astonishingly great cellars with all the beautiful oak barrels, hand made at the chateau, breathtaking grounds: not to be missed!

Just an update to my old review, as it can't be updated in TA. Gunvor has since retired from Chateau Margaux, and the visitor reception facilities have been completely renovated. I don't personally like the new reception room, which is more like a museum room and does not have the "homey" charm of the old room (which has now been... More

We where a group of friends being lucky enough to be accepted to come here for a visit. The girl taking care of us was really kind and knowledgeable. The tour was about an hour an we got to experience the production room, wine cellar and got to taste Pavillion Rouge 2004. This was really a once in a lifetime... More

As a wine writer and visiting Bordeaux since 1984, I have deep insight in this property as I have visited it 30+ times already. In June this year, new buildings and new cellar, tasting room, etc. were revealed. If you know an important wine merchant in your country, ask him/her to organize a tour around and also tasting if possible.... More

A terrific hostess takes you around to see all. Learn about wine making on a different level. Taste the wine. Beautiful structures to see. Ask about the history, optical sorting, and barrels.

I love to drink Chateau Margaux and made it one of the "visit the wines you drink and love" tours. While I can list many memorable visits at other Chateaux, this was not worth the time. Quick walk around from a disinterested tour guide, perhaps she was just having an off day- I say skip this one.
