Clos Margalaine Margaux. The assembly of this wine with a higher composition Merlot, seduced by its finesse and elegance.
Grapes 50% Merlot - 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
In 1999, Philippe Porcheron acquired 4 hectares of vines on the extraordinary terroir of Margaux . With Jean-Luc Thunevin and Muriel Andraud, producer of Château de Valandraud, he then endeavored to make a wine with infinite care: manual leaf stripping, green harvests, very low yield, overripe grapes. Anything that is not perfect is relentlessly eliminated. This perfectionist approach, combined with the fabulous terroir of Margaux, made it possible to obtain sumptuous grapes with thick skin of a dark black and full of sugar. The vinification of this vintage is done in the cellar, or rather in the garage of Roger Rex, the former owner of the plots exploited by Philippe Porcheron on the AOC Margaux.
Margaux's first garage wine was born, and it will be called "Marojallia", Margaux in Latin.
The Second Wine of Marojallia, Clos Margalaine , benefits from the same facilities and know-how as Marojallia and is produced from the youngest vines of the vineyard. The blend of this vintage with a higher composition in Merlot, seduces by its finesse and elegance.
