Chateau Bolaire, built in 1860, is located "at the end of the island" of Macau in Médoc. This strip of land connected to the médulienne peninsula was before an island of the Garonne.
Thanks to ideal conditions for viticulture (close to the river, natural drainage), this region has a wine past: the 16th and early 17th century represent the golden age of the vineyards. Since that glorious time, the vineyard has evolved, but the tradition remains present: the Petit Verdot grape variety represents 39% of the plantings.
- Average area: 7 hectares
- Average age of the vines: 47 years
- Global vines: Petit Verdot (50%), Merlot Black (30%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%)
