Chateau de CAZENOVE - Bordeaux
Located 3 km from the village of Margaux, and just at the edge of the Protected Designation of Origin Margaux, the Castle of Cazenove is a property of 15 hectares. Louis de Cazenove, passionate winemaker, develops a wine of pure Bordeaux tradition.
At the end of the 19th century, La Maqueline and its neighbor, the Château Dauzac (classified in 1855) belonged to Nathaniel Johnston, a figure in Bordeaux wine-growing history.
Dauzac was a pilot property where was developed for the first time in Bordeaux a sparkling white wine and where was discovered the famous "bouillie bordelaise", allowing to fight against mildew.
In 1989, Madame de Cazenove van Essen and her children decided to replant the old vineyards of La Maqueline, victims of the frost in 1956: the vineyard, whose vines adjoin those of the Cru Classé Château Dauzac, was then renamed "Château de Cazenove".
The best parcels of dry palus have been planted with the typical grape varieties of Bordeaux: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
The motto of this little-known domain of the Medoc: Sine labore nihil (Nothing without work) .
A work in reasoned agriculture, combined with a requirement of strict quality allows the Chateau de Cazenove to reach a maturity and a perfect density in its wines.
The Chateau de Cazenove has a special history with the United States. It has always been popular there, and the Americans were among its first enthusiasts. Indeed, the first vintage honored the bicentenary of the creation of the village of Cazenovia, in the State of New York.
While the vast majority of our members have always been on the Atlantic coast since the end of breeding, we have convinced the winemaker to give us some boxes thanks to a strong argument: He is the first Bordeaux to integrate our selection, , With the great vintage 2010, which was preciously preserved in the castle to be sold only after several years of breeding.
