Margaux and Moulis

Margaux and Moulis differs about the range of prices and qualities, but both are « feminine style » with fruit and finesse.

Margaux (1490 hectares) is certainly one of the most known wine area in the world and is characterized by a wine said rather feminine. A good Margaux is delicate, fine, fruity and age reveals the complexity of the wine. The most famous are Château Margaux and Château Palmer, but some family estates
like Château Deyrem Valentin worth a visit.

Moulis (634 hectares) is between Margaux and Saint-Julien, a little farther from the river. It includes some features of both designations, namely the finesse and power, but also the roundness and fruit. The most famous are Château Chasse-Spleen, Poujeaux, Maucaillou, but some outsiders like Château Mauvesin-Barton worth trying.
