Our 1st estate grown wine, Château Gauthier, was established in 1919 in Civrac-de-Blaye, north of Bordeaux. Settled on a hilly terroir of light sandy soil, it was classified as a ‘1st growth’ Bordeaux in 1946 by Féret. Our family heritage wine is a subtle and elegantly balanced Merlot and Cabernets blend, aged for a minimum of 12 months in old French oak barrels. A classic yet non-stereotypical Bordeaux red.
