|Notizen des Weinguts:||THE PROPERTY: Chris Cardon bought this property in June 2015 from the You family who owns and directs the Bordeaux Vineam Group. This property emerged thanks to Saint-Estephe land consolidations that took place in the 1970s and is located in the commune known as Coutelin within the Saint-Estephe appellation. The vineyard was classed as a Crus Bourgeois in 2011 and continues to produce wines worthy of that standard. Saint-Estephe wines are solid in character when young which makes them ideal for laying down. The soils here enjoy particularly good drainage thanks to the Jalle Du Breuil stream and the Estey d’Un stream that delineate the north and south boundaries of Saint-Estephe. THE WINEMAKER: Chris Cardon is a Belgian businessman who made his fortune in the pharmaceutical industry. Chris says he has always been passionate about wine and when he first of the Marathon du Medoc in 2006 he decided to run it himself. The running, the customs, and wine tastings of the marathon kept him coming back for the 2007 and 2008 races. Finally, in 2009 Chris decided to participate in a Pauillac harvest during which he found and acquired his first micro property of 2 ha Chateau Bellevue. In the early 2000s, Chris also bought Chateau La Haye, which happened to belong to one of our partner winemakers who used the money to buy Chateau de Janicon in Graves and which we now buy exclusively. In 2015 Chris scouted for and purchased Chateau Vieux Coutelin which met his standards as an exceptional terroir. Some of the parcels are believed to have been part of the Lafon Rochet estate. Today, he is consulted by Eric Boissenot, who also consults Latour, Lafite, Mouton, and Margaux and he does a lot of his distribution in the top restaurants around Europe such as Taillevent in Paris.|
