The Chateau Margaux vineyard is renowned as one of the world's greatest vineyards and the 2009 vintage is considered to be one of the best ever produced by the estate.

"To mark this fantastic vintage, we are delighted to create a unique opportunity by partnering with Le Clos to offer three Balthazars to the world's most discerning wine buyers, Paul Pontellier, chief winemaker and managing director of Chateau Margaux said in a statement issued by Le Clos.

Chateau Margaux's history stretches back over 400 years, during which the estate has produced some of the world's best wines time and again.

"The Chateau Margaux 2009 vintage is one of the best we have ever produced, hence why we chose to bottle it in this magnificent format," the statement said.
