Haut-Marbuzet Bordeaux Wine

Chateau Haut Marbuzet Boredeaux Wine

In 1770 the vines of Marbuzet were part of the considerable inheritance that Sylvestre Fatin left to his two daughters, Pétronille and Rose. In 1825 the property was sold to the MacCartny family, who were descendants of Irish Jacobites. In 1848, a bitter succession dispute led the MacCarthy family to sell the land in separate parcels. The Poissonier family acquired a seven-hectare parcel and named it Haut- Marbuzet. A hundred years later, in 1952, Hervé Duboscq bought the property under the viager system, paying a monthly sum until the death of its owner. Though without training in agriculture and oenology, he had a natural talent for viticulture.

Guiraud Bordeaux Wine

GUiraud Bordeaux WineChâteau Guiraud, formerly the Château de Baylè, was classified in 1855. Along with the Château d’Yquem, it is the only First Growth to be located in the Sauternes commune. Until the 1855 classification, the name Guiraud brought to mind a powerful family rather than a wine. This family, whose roots in the region went back to the seventeenth century, had a significant impact on Sauternes. But only since 1981, when the property was acquired by Canadian shipbuilder Frank Narby, has Guiraud regained the prestige, quality, and grandeur it deserves, given its fabulous terroir.

Fronsac & Canon-Fronsac Bordeaux Wines

Chateau Candelaire Canon FronsacThe Term de Fronsac, at the highest point of this area, has been inhabited for many centuries. Under Charlemagne, an impressive fortress was built, which long protected the locals from barbarian invasions.

Henry IV made Fronsac the centre of his dukedom. On the ruins of the fortress, which was destroyed in 1623, the Duke of Richelieu-who was also Duke of Fronsac-built a charming Italian folly, where elegant, witty parties were held. As a result of these, many of the country's most important figures came to think highly of Fronsac's wines.

Because of their particularly favorable locations, their terrou", and a microclimate extremely well suited to wine-growing, six towns (Fronsac, La Riviere, Saint-Cermain-la-Riviere, Saint-Michel-de-Fronsac, Sainr-Aignan, and Saillans) plus some parts of Galgon benefit from the specific Fronsac AOC.

Graves & Graves Superieures Bordeaux Wines

Graves Bordeaux WinesIt is undoubtedly in this area, within and just outside the city of Bordeaux, that the region's winemaking roots run deepest. Graves wines, both red and white, have always increased the reputation of Bordeaux wines around the world. During the Middle Ages they were particularly renowned, and punishments were severe for those who cheated the public by passing off wines from other regions as being from Graves. Under the jurisdiction of Bordeaux, the vineyard at that time completely encircled the city.
