Château Le Meynieu is located in the heart of the Médoc, close to the village of St-Estèphe.
"Cantemerle remains one of the top values among the Classified Growths. It’s an estate you can count on to produce elegant, character driven wines at a fair price."
The history of Château Suduiraut began in 1580 with the marriage of Nicole d’Allard and Léonard de Suduiraut. Classified as a Premier Cru Classé (First Growth) in Sauternes in 1855, it has always been known as a superb property (its neighbour is Château d’Yquem).
Château Larrivaux is run by Berangère Tesseron, the wife of Basile Tesseron of 4th Growth Château Lafon Rochet.
The Donissan de Citran family ruled this estate in the 13th century until 1832, when the last heir had to sell the estate to Mr. Clauzel. This rich, ambitious businessman defined the property’s boundaries and gave Château Citran prominence among the Médoc estates.
"This remains a wine that has virtually a grand cru Burgundian complexity and savoury character, and it is often a great value among the famous names of Bordeaux."
— Robert Parker
"The most southern of the famous estates in the Médoc, La Lagune has benefited from considerable investment in its state-of-the-art, space-age winery and in the 21st century has begun to make wines that rival the marvellous efforts produced here in the 1970s and the 1980s.
After a mild, very dry winter, the growing season got off to a strong start thanks to abnormally high temperatures in spring. In fact, the months of April and May were the warmest in over a century! As a result, flowering took place 3 weeks ahead of time, in mid-May, auguring well for a very early harvest.
