Château Magdelaine

The winery near the town of Saint-Émilion (Bordeaux) was founded in 1863 by the Chatonnet family through the purchase of five hectares of vineyards. In 1952, after several changes of ownership, it became the property of the Moueix family empire, which owns the famous Château Pétrus in Pomerol, among many others. The vineyards covered 11 hectares of vines with the Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%) varieties. The long-lasting red wine was aged for 20 months in barriques that were 50% new. Because of the similarity, it was called "Pétrus of Saint-Émilion". The second wine was called "Château Saint Brice"). The estate classified as "Premier Grand Cru Classé B" was incorporated into the sister estate Château Belair-Monange in 2012.
