Château des Eyrins 2018

  • Further details
  • Julie et Xavier Gonet-Médeville bought this tiny gem, ideally situated on Margaux's deep gravel plateau, from Château Margaux's former Cellar Master in 2009, and the couple have been exploring the potential of their 2.9 hectares ever since.

    In 2014, they refurbished the cellars; this year, they completed a renovation of the adjoining building which has restored its old-world charm. There's no fake rusticity, just a stripped-back style that makes the most of the raw materials - rather like Julie and Xavier's winemaking style, in fact.

    Despite their frenetic schedule, zooming between Bordeaux and Champagne, the couple are committed parents. When the time came for decisions about higher education, they adapted their schedule in order to stay near their children at this crucial time.

    Eyrins was much missed at the en primeurs in 2017, so it is good to see their silky, complex, admirably precise 2018 very much in evidence, packed with fruit and displaying that quintessential Margaux elegance.
