Margaux AOC is a red wine only appellation on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. The production zone comprises the commune of Margaux and a much wider area across four other in its environs (listed below), 20-28km (12-17 miles) northwest of Bordeaux itself. Margaux is the largest and qualitatively most heterogeneous of the Haut-Médoc’s six communally-named AOCs, the five others being Saint-Estèphe AOC, Saint-Julien AOCPauillac AOCListrac-Médoc AOC and Moulis-en-Médoc AOC. Margaux AOC had more estates classified in 1855 than any other, and far more high-ranking ones (Hugh Johnson Wine Companion: 1991, p.53).
