Château Pibran Pauillac AOC

Pibran is an old Médoc name. Its highly reputed vineyard covers one of the finest outcrops of Pauillac. The estate, which originally had only just 10 hectares, was expanded in 2001 following the purchase of neighbouring property to reach the current size of 17 hectares of superb Garonne gravel soil. For a long time it belonged to the Billa family, who sold it to AXA Millésimes in 1987. The vineyards were restructured shortly after the purchase, and drainage was improved in order to get the best possible effect of the soil on the wine. Today Château Pibran is carefully produced by the same technical team that makes Château Pichon Baron and then moved in barrel, for aging in the cellars of Pibran.

Château Vieux Pourret Saint-Émilion Grand Cru AOC

Château Vieux Pourret is very well located on the Saint-Emilion plateau, on the locality called “Pourret”. Vieux Pourret’s vines are for the most part in the town of Saint-Emilion itself (with a clay/sand mix in the soil) but also in Saint-Hippolyte, where the soil consists of clayey limestone. Château Vieux Pourret has been created for over 50 years and now the property is owned by Emmanuel Coudroy and run by his wife Nathalie, being the estate manager, which, starting from the vintage 2012, didn’t continue to make this wine organic but they rather elaborated a fruity wine with a melted and elegant mouth, really worthy of a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru.

Clos de L’Oratoire Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé AOC

Clos de l’Oratoire, located on Saint-Emilion’s northeast slope, where the terroir of Fronsac molasse is made by a layer of sandy soil and a clay subsoil, ideally suited to Merlot (80% of the vines).
In the middle of the 19th century, Beylot, a merchant from Libourne, acquired Château Peyreau, a vast property located northeast of St Emilion. Redeemed in the 1960s by Michel Boutet, this one splits it in two and succeeds in classifying “Premier Grand Cru” the best vines under the name “Clos de l’Oratoire”. In 1971, he sold the ensemble (Peyreau and Clos de l’Oratoire) to Count Joseph-Hubert von Neipperg .
The family has made wine in Germany since the 13th century, and viticulture has never stopped being a central part of their life. The custodian of some 800 years of winegrowing tradition, the talented Stephan von Neipperg, agronomist and son of Joseph-Hubert, manages the Bordeaux estates acquired by his family in 1971. Ably assisted by a team of professionals, he has brought the wines from these châteaux to the pinnacle of quality.
