Nathalie and Julien Meyre, are the 6th generation of the family running this property, perpetuate the tradition: predominance of Merlot, collage with egg white, aging of 12 months in barrels, manual harvesting for young parcels and for old vines, while bringing their dynamism to this renowned Cru Bourgeois du Médoc.

Château Chasse-Spleen Moulis en Médoc Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel AOC

Château Chasse-Spleen is the leading Moulis estate along with Château Poujeaux. Although it is classified only as a Cru Bourgeois, it regularly outperforms many of the Médoc’s more renowned classed growths. There are numerous stories trying to explain the name of Chateau Chasse Spleen. The first version is that the name was inspired from a visit by Lord Byron in 1821, which was so moved, that he quoted, “Quel remede pour chasser le spleen”, which when loosely translated means, “What remedy to remove the spleen?”. The other equally poetic explanation is attributed to the poem Spleen, whose author Charles Baudelaire also visited Château Chasse-Spleen.
A very elegant, fresh and classical wine with a lot of energy and drive on the finish with great aging potential.

Château Clerc Milon Pauillac Grand Cru Classé AOC

The history and the success of Château Clerc Milon are summed up in these three words. The terroir is that of Pauillac, where some of the world’s finest wines are made. The neighbours are Mouton and Lafite, illustrious First Growths whose nearby vines can be seen from the terrace of the Château. The encounter was with Baron Philippe, who in 1970 acquired the then badly neglected estate and decided to restore it to its status as a Classified Growth. Now, thanks to Baroness Philippine, Clerc Milon, one of the most highly regarded châteaux in the Bordeaux region, can boast technical facilities and reception areas worthy of its reputation.

Château Cos Labory Saint-Estèphe Grand Cru Classé AOC

Past Château Lafite, then up the small hill of stones, the locals call “Caux”, to Cos d’Estournel and its discrete neighbour Château Cos Labory.
The name of the estate comes from its geographical location on the Cos hill and the name of François Labory, who was the first owner until 1845. Mr. d’Estournel then acquired it before selling it again to an English banker, Charles Martyns in 1852. The property was finally taken over by George Weber in the 1930’s, who bequeathed it to his daughter and son-in-law, François Audoy in 1959. In 1971, the couple acquired the neighbouring estate, Château Andron Blanquet, until their elder son Bernard took over, now the emblematic symbol of the estate, having always lived in Saint-Estèphe.
Over time, the changes came gradually through substantial investment into technology, particularly an ultra-modern vat house and a new cellar. Having decided to vinify the wines at low temperatures to preserve and extract the fruit, their aim is to offer wines that age well but are also enjoyable when still young. Château Cos Labory combines characteristic Saint-Estèphe vigour and elegance and its rich tannin content gives this wine good ageing potential.

Château Coutet Premier Cru Classé Barsac AOC

First built as a fortress, Château Coutet still bears the stamp of its medieval origins.
The history of Château Coutet as a winemaking estate starts in 1643, when Charles Le Guérin, known as Lord of Coutet, made it one of the first vineyards in the Sauternes appellation. The estate remained in the hands of his descendants until 1788, time when Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States of America, serving as ambassador in France, acknowledged Château Coutet as “the best Sauternes in Barsac.”
Following a number of informal rankings, the 1855 classification ordered by Napoleon III was issued for the Universal Exposition. It officially recognised Château Coutet as one of the Classified First Growths of the Sauternes and Barsac appellations, alongside the finest wines from the Médoc and Graves regions.
Henry-Louis Guy, an industrialist from Lyon, acquired Château Coutet in the 1920 and managed the estate until 1977, when Marcel Baly and two of his sons, Philippe and Dominique, became the new owners of Château Coutet in 1977. Originally from Alsace, the family subsequently expanded overseas, especially in the United States. With zeal and determination, they set about the task of renewing the vineyard and the winery buildings. In 1994, the two brothers concluded an agreement with Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA. The winemaking team is now advised by the technical staff from Château Mouton Rothschild.

Château d’Armailhac Pauillac Grand Cru Classé AOC

The vineyard of Château d’Armailhac, an 1855 Classified Growth under the name Mouton d’Armailhacq, covers 70 hectares (172 acres) in the northern part of Pauillac. The deep gravelly soil rests on a clay-limestone base, giving the Château d’Armailhac wines their characteristic refinement and elegance. The vineyard is planted with traditional Médoc grape varieties. The average age of the vineyard is 46 years, but nearly 20% of the total surface area dates back to 1890. Château d’Armailhac preserves the old methods of ensuring quality.

Undoubtedly, 2016, judging by the density and texture of the Armailhac 2016, may be compared to the greatest vintages of the 21st century, such as the 2010 and 2005.

Château de Castelnau Picpoul de Pinet

At the gates of the village of Castelnau de Guers, a few kilometers from Pezenas and the Mediterranean Sea, the Domaine de Castelnau has very ancient origins. Possession of the Lords of Guers from the 13th century. A precious heritage lovingly maintained by Beatrice and Christophe Muret, owners of the premises since 1997, thus perpetuating the vocation vigneronne of their ancestors.
One of the oldest Languedoc grapes, the Piquepoul has been growing near the Thau Lagoon for centuries. White is the most common, though both blush and black grapes are to be found. As early as 1618, the botanist J.B. Maniol cited Piquepoul as one of the best known Languedoc grapes in his work “Sylve plantarium”.

Château du Tertre Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Château du Tertre takes its name from the superb group of graves, culminating point of the Margaux appellation, on which is erected the castle. This millennial property of 52 hectares (of which 18 are grown biodynamic) enjoys worldwide renown thanks to the prestigious Grand Cru Classé de Margaux title it has had since 1855.

Château Durfort-Vivens Margaux Grand Cru Classé AOC

Located between the villages of Margaux, Cantenac and Soussans, the vineyard of Durfort-Vivens seats on the ridge of deep gravels. These gravels were brought by the Garonne river in the Quaternary era. This great terroir offers early maturity and allows the Cabernet Sauvignon to fully express finesse and silky tannins, a guarantee of freshness and elegance typical of the great Margaux, also in their second wine Vivens. At Château Durfort-Vivens the constant quest for a natural balance between the vineyard and its terroir is reflected by the use of traditional cultural practices. During the second year in biodynamic conversion, in this 2014 you can be able to observe the balances favored by the vine with its environment in this lovely, elegantly understated claret.
