An important family of winegrowers in Bordeaux who have made a special contribution to the vinification of white wines. Georges Dubourdieu acquired the Château Doisy-Daëne vineyard (Barsac, Sauternes) in 1924. Son Pierre Dubourdieu (1923-????) produced the first dry white wine in Sauternes in 1962 in the style that is common today. Until then, only sweet wines of simple quality were common. Since 2000, the family business "Denis Dubourdieu Domaines" has been run by Denis Dubourdieu (*1949) with his wife Florence, supported by their sons Fabrice and Jean-Jacques.

The estate comprises the four wine estates Château Doisy-Daëne with second wine Château Cantegril (Barsac), Château Haura (Cérons, Graves), Château Reynon (Cadillac) and Clos Floridene (Graves). The total of 135 hectares of vineyards are cultivated according to ecological rules or certified ISO 14001 environmental standards. Around 600,000 bottles of wine are produced annually; around 60% of this is exported to 40 countries worldwide.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
