Wines produced at Château Margaux include Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux, produced from 100-percent Sauvignon grapes; Margaux du Château Margaux, a limited- production wine only available in a select few restaurants in France, the UK, Japan and the US; Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, which is ready to drink a little earlier, while still having an excellent ageing potential; and Château Margaux Grand Vin, which has been recognized since the 16th century as one of the greatest wines in the world. For the first time in its history, and for this year only, Château Margaux has created a special bottle for its Grand Vin 2015. is wine marks a momentous occasion for the winery, as it was the last to be produced under the supervision of Paul Pontallier, who joined the estate in 1983, and assumed its general management from 1989 until his untimely passing in March 2016. In place of the usual labels found on standard bottles, magnums, imperials and balthazars, all presentations of Château Margaux Grand Vin 2015 are decorated with a custom screen- printed design affixed to the glass. e bottle design pays tribute to Pontallier while reflecting the winery's storied cellars and grounds, which are superimposed in grey and gold. The 2015 vintage was the last supervised by Pontallier and Corinne Mentzelopoulos believes the bottle design for this very great vintage is a fitting tribute to a legendary winemaker, who is widely credited with significantly modernizing and improving winemaking at the estate. Available now, the Grand Vin 2015 Vintage retails for $1,200.
