Château Malmaison

The winery is located in the municipality Moulis in the eponymous area in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification after the old now no longer valid system, it was last classified in 2003 as "Cru Bourgeois". It borders on that Château Clarke and was bought together with this in 1973 by Baron Edmond Adolphe de Rothschild (1926-1997). After his wife's full name is on the bottle label "Château Malmaison Baronne Nadine de Rothschild". Today it is owned by the son Baron Benjamin de Rothschild (* 1963). The vineyards were completely renewed between 1973 and 1978 and comprise 25 plots with a total of 24 hectares of vineyards. They are planted with Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). The estate is managed by Eric Fabre. As a consultant was the well-known oenologist Michel Rolland involved. The long-lived red wine is aged for 12 to 15 months in about one-third new barriques.
