The average yield is 41 hl/ha. Margaux is the largest appellation in the Médoc wine district. Both during very rainy years and extremely dry years should the wines from this appellation be avoided. The reason is that during the very rainy years, the Cabernet Sauvignon’s grapes do not achieve sufficiently high maturity and usually they are attacked by fungus while during the very dry years they are affected by stress (the grapes’ maturation get smaller due to the reduction in photosynthesis).
