About the Winery: 
This jewel-box of an estate includes a triangle (2h) surrounded on two sides by the vines of Chateau Margaux itself. No coincidence since the former owners, the Grangeroux family, were cellar-masters at the famous Chateau and the vines were a parting gift after THREE GENERATIONS of service. When the Grangerou family decided to sell the property in 2008, they wanted it to put it in the hands of a young winemaker, preferably a couple who could coax the true potential of the vineyard and build it as a family legacy. Enter Julie and Xavier Gonet-Medeville. Julie and Xavier are among the brightest young talents in the wine world today. In many ways, ​​Julie and Xavier are the first couple of French wines. Both hail from storied winemaking families: Julie’s family is famous for its incomparable Château Gilette, and Xavier comes from a long line of Champagne growers in Le Mesnil.
