Situated at the south of St Estephe, the vineyards border those of Chateau Lafite. The excellent terroir means that there has always been the potential to produce exceptional wines; this is recognised by its 2nd growth classification in 1855. Now owned by the industrialist Michel Reybier, the chateau boasts one of the most advanced wineries in the Medoc with a building program to rival any of the First Growths, and one suspects this is the estate’s intention; to be perceived alongside the most illustrious names of the Medoc.
Following the departure of Jean-Guillaume Prats, Aymeric de Gironde, formally of Pichon Longueville was appointed as General Manager. He has instigated a change in philosophy, with the emphasis on producing wines with freshness, elegance and precision.
