The wines of Bordeaux are legendary for a reason, and Chateau de la Coste’s Margeaux is no exception. With its brilliant ruby color, purple notes, and an aroma of black fruits, cassis, and hints of cinnamon and sandalwood, this wine is soft, satisfying and elegant with a lush berry fruit taste.åÊThis is a wine that could easily be aged up to a decade in the right conditions, and the family who makes the wine has been doing so for over 100 years. We recommend pairing this with roasted red meats such as duck, peppered beef, and lamb shank. The velvety flavors of the wine shine through when served with asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and mushroom risotto dishes.
