About this winery
Château de Lamarque is a delightful Haut-Médoc property which is situated on the left bank of the Gironde, to the north of Margaux, on the south of Pauillac and Saint-Julien. Pierre-Gilles and Marie-Hélène Gromand d’Evry are determined to make the best Haut-Médoc wine possible here and have done their utmost to achieve this goal. Because the quality of the harvest and the nurturing of the vines is essential to the finished wine, Marie-Hélène Gromand d'evry took steps to improve...
D de Lamarque is aged in French oak barrels (all coming from the French region of Allier) for about 12 to 14 months before being bottled. The way we pick the barrels is extremely meticulous being guided by the idea of respecting the harmony between the oak tannins and the wine tannins. Every year the pairing is different. We traditionally use 2 vintage-old barrels for D de Lamarque. Racking happens every 4 months; the ageing process ends with a natural egg-white filter. When we bottle the wine we do not use any chemical filter, only a slight sieving.
