“I’m delighted with the appealing, ripe fruit charm of this elegant Margaux. Lovely to age, too” Jean-Marc Sauboua
Le Chai Head Winemaker

Decanter has described Le Chai au Quai as “a fabulous venture”. It’s our own cellar, housed in a magnificent 19th century building on the banks of the Dordogne in Castillon. Here, Haut-Brion trained Jean-Marc Sauboua and his team hand finish special parcels of wine selected from top vineyards. We made Le Grand Chai Margaux in 2012 and again in the delicious, fruit rich 2014 vintage. It’s from a property between Lascombes and Margaux, a prime position. JMS aged it in top Seguin Moreau barrels (as used by Château Margaux) to lend layers of complexity to deep fruit. Pretty red fruit aromas with hints of cedar and flowers – this claret is lovely now if you decant for a couple of hours. It has a long life ahead. Reserve for fine red meat dishes.
