Château Marquis de Mons Margaux
The origins of the château date back to the 13th century . Amongst its illustrious owners was Pierre de Mons, who acquired the property in 1623 and gave it his name. Château Marquis de Mons is a single block vineyard, surrounded by a wall and located in the northern part of the Margaux appellation near the banks of the Garonne, as are all the very best Médoc Crus.
Since the 1990’s, a major renovation programme have been implemented by the new owners: construction of a new winery and an air-conditioned storage cellar, major drainage programme and management of the vineyard in the interests of sustainable ecological practices.
The Château is located in the northern part of the Margaux appellation, on the banks of the Garonne. The 58 heatres of vineyards are composed of Garonne gravels and clay-limestone.
Fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks allowing slow fermentation at low temperature. The wine ages up to 12 months in French oak barrels.
