Introduction : The vineyard of Château Domeyne is located on a beautiful hill of big gravels and it surrounds the vineyard of Château Calon-Segur. The property confirmed in 2003 its ranking of the 1932 Cru Bourgeois and collects good scores every year. Excellent facilities allow the winemaking of a wine full of nuances and personality. In 2006, Château Domeyne was bought by Claire Villars Lurton, owner of Château Haut-Bages Liberal and Château Ferrière, 5th Classified Growth of Pauillac and 3rd Classified. Growth of Margaux, and her husband Gonzague Lurton, owner of Château Durfort Vivens, 2nd Classified Growth of Margaux. They put all their know-how to lift this wine among the best in the classification of Saint Estèphe.
The vineyard is planted on ridges and plateaus particularly serious drained that are very characteristic of the best terroirs of Saint-Estèphe. This land is also marked by a basement made of clay and limestone that gives the wine its particularity. Grapes are rich in tannins round and fleshy; giving them a beautiful dark red color, a powerful structure and a great aromatic finesse. This is a wine that is particularly intended to aging and after a few years, it gains in aromatic complexity and character. Once softened tannins, the wine then gives an impression of great harmony.
