Built around 1830 by Philippe Delacourt, Lord of Bourdieu, in the architectural style of the 19th century manor house, Château Le Bourdieu was recorded in the 2nd edition of Féret in 1878 and in the 1st “Cru Bourgeois” classification (1932). Le Bourdieu is situated in Médoc, near the village of Valeyrac, in one of the great wine growing regions of France. The best soils of this area are composed of stone deposits with sand and clay known as “croupes” or “crests”. Château Le Bourdieu is located in the heart of one of those deposits, nestled closed to the mouth of the Gironde river, which is an extra benefit. It is said that the proximity of the river ensures a good wine in this area because throughout the year the river influences the climate and balances humidity and temperature, which is essential to obtain a good maturity of the grapes.

The color is a nuanced ruby. The wine exhibits complex aromas of red and black fruits intertwined with woody and toasty notes. Long flavors, generous, ample and pleasant in the mouth, the wine is an excellent companion to grilled steak cooked with shallots – Medocan style- or a chicken cooked with cream and mushrooms.
