In the only book dedicated to this prestigious Bordeaux wine, Faith leads the reader on a tour through the sumptuous neo-classical Cheteau Margaux estate. Beginning with a description of the dramatic history that defines the estate, and the fortuitous geology and geography that define the wine, Jean Dethier describes the magical atmosphere of the cheteau; three celebrated wine and food experts-George Lepre, Markus Del Monego, and Shinya Tasaki-offer critical insight on the best combinations of fine food with Cheteau Margaux's wines. The final section offers a useful chronology and assessment of the vintages from 1771 to the present.
