Presentation

This area has experienced a revival for nearly 20 years.

Originally a Gallo-Roman villa stood on this land in Macau. Replaced by a fort, itself destroyed in the 18th century, the property (155 hectares of which 35 are planted with vines enjoying the distinction "Cru Bourgeois") was hold by the mayor of Bordeaux, Mr Duffour Dubergier (1797-1860).A wine lover, he also had the Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte in Graves. In 1929, the vines were torn and pines replaced the vines.

Rémy Fouin and Mercier brothers decided to make the vineyard revive by planting ten acres of land of grave in 1987.This wine had since been awarded many medals.

  • Average area: 5.23 hectares
  • Average age of the vines: 21 years (the most recent were planted in 2007)
  • Global vines: Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) Merlot (30%), Petit Verdot (20%)
  • Rearing time: 12 to 14 months
