Château Magdelaine

The winery near the city Saint-Emilion (Bordeaux) was founded in 1863 by the Chatonnet family by buying five hectares of vineyards. After several changes of ownership, it came into the possession of the family empire in 1952 Moueix, which among many others also the famous Château Petrus in Pomerol heard. The vineyards covered 11 hectares of vines with the varieties Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The long-lived red wine was aged for 20 months in 50% new barriques and, due to its similarity, was called "Pétrus von Saint-Émilion". The second wine was called "Château Saint Brice"). The estate classified as “Premier Grand Cru Classé B” became the sister winery in 2012 Château Belair-Monange incorporated.
