Château Matras

The vineyard in Saint-Émilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux) was owned by the Bernard family since 1962 and was last managed by Véronique Gaboriaud-Bernard. The vineyard comprised 12 hectares of Merlot (50%) and Cabernet Franc (50%). The red wine was aged for 12 months in barriques, one third of which were new. Classified as "Grand Cru Classé", the estate was bought against the will of Véronique Gaboriaud-Bernard (initiated by her two sisters and co-owners) in 2011 for eight million euros from the owners of the neighbouring Château Canon.
