The wine

Château Le Coteau is one of the last family wineries in the Margaux appellation. In charge of the winery since 1973, Éric Léglise has a firm commitment to the land and his wish to be a "bon vigneron", respecting the identity and personality of Margaux wines.

Château Le Coteau is a wonderful example of the elegance of Margaux wines. The white gravel soils produce a fine and stylish wine brimming with flavour. It has an opaque claret colour and a discretely fruity nose, with aromas of cherries and strawberries, green pepper, violets, mocha coffee and vanilla over subtle hints of wood. Velvety, dense and powerful in the mouth. An impression of delicacy that does not prevent this bottle from showing a certain aptitude for aging. A splendid wine which gives you the chance to enjoy the excellence of Margaux for a great price.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling

The 2017 Le Coteau is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of crushed red and black currants, blackberries and raspberry preserves with hints of rosehip tea and cinnamon toast. Medium-bodied, soft and plush, with loads of juicy fruit, it finishes seductively fragrant.

— Lisa Perrotti-Brown (16/03/2020)Robert Parker Wine Advocate Vintage 2017 - 90 PARKER

Mid to deep crimson. Savoury nose that's very Médoc – maybe not quite as perfumed as a typical Margaux. Sweet palate entry and more freshness than tannin on the end. Quite delicate in terms of weight. Well balanced and rather refined even if not concentrated.

— Jancis Robinson (19/01/2021)JancisRobinson.com Vintage 2018 - 16 JANCIS ROBINSON

Blackcurrants, blackberries, dried flowers, graphite and cedar on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, tight-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Pretty austerity and tight. Better from 2024.
