One of the six municipalities (next to Listrac-Médoc. Moulis. Pauillac. Saint-Estèphe and Saint-Julien ) within the French area Haut-Médoc, which are independent appellations and may have the place name on the label. Margaux is the most famous and largest community in the center of the Médoc, The vineyards cover around 1,300 hectares of vineyards. The municipalities Arsac, Cantenac, Labarde and Soussans also belong to the appellation. The red wines produced there are among the best from Médoc. The floors consist of a flat layer of coarse gravel over fine gravel sub-soil mixed with limestone.
There are also well over 20 wineries classified as Cru Bourgeois such as Château Labégorce-Zédé and Château Siran, as well as a number of companies classified as Cru Artisan. The determining variety Cabernet Sauvignon usually has the largest share in the red wines that have been storable for decades, however Merlot mostly has a higher share in the Médoc than other large municipalities. This gives the tannic-rich Margaux wines a typical, somewhat more supple, softer note.
