On a beautiful hill top of gravels and close to several Classified Growth of Saint-Estephe estates (Chateau Calon Segur), Chateau Domeyne confirmed its classification as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932 and has won medals every year. Excellent facilities allow the making of a wine full of nuances and personality.
In 2006, the mansion house was bought by Claire Villars Lurton, owner of Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal and Chateau Ferriere which are respectively 5th Classified Growth of Pauillac and 3rd Classifed Growth of Margaux, and her husband Gonzague Lurton, owner of Chateau DURFORT VIVENS, 2nd Classified Growth of Margaux.
They put all their expertise in their efforts to lift this wine to rank among the best in its classification. With this new goal of quality in mind, Claire and Gonzague Lurton are determined to continue the challenge of promoting Chateau Domeyne to the top.
