LOCATION: This estate of 215 acres is located in the village of Preignac, nearby the river Garonne.

CLASSIFICATION: Premier Cru Sauternes

GRAPE VARIETY: 90% Semillon 10% Sauvignon Blanc

VINIFICATION AND AGING: Fermentation by temperature control in casks. Aged 18 to 24 months in casks (30 to 40% new for each vintage).

HISTORY: This Château was built in the 17th century after the earlier fortress was destroyed by the Governor of Aquitaine under the reign of King Louis XIII. Its label adorns the legend “Ancien Cru Du Roy” which relates to both the Duroy owners and the subsidies given by King Louis XIV in recognition for the quality of its wines. The estate was purchased in 1940 by a businessman, Mr. Fonquernie, who then passed it into the hands of his five daughters, until the French group AXA-Millésimes bought it in the late 80s. This Château is now managed by the well-known Jean-Michel Cazes.

STYLE: Typically displays brilliant golden color, and mouthful of fruit and complex aromas.
