Château Haut-Barrail

Located in Médoc · France

One of the most beautiful vineyards of the Médoc, Château Haut-Barrail is in Bégadan, in a location it has occupied since 1362. Formerly known as ‘La Maison de la Bernède’, the estate was acquired by current winemaker Cyril Gillet’s family in 1987.

It took a lot of restoration work to get the estate to a state where it could start producing wine, with the first vintage of Château Haut-Barrail not appearing until 1995.

The vineyard now covers around 15 hectares that are mostly dedicated to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The estate’s wines are refined and elegant, and notable for their assertive character.
