Château Deyrem Valentin

Since 1996 Christelle Sorge has been working alongside her father Jean at Deyrem Valentin, the family estate – one of the last true gems in Margaux, the bastion of classified wineries.
Christelle Sorge has been working alongside her father Jean at Deyrem Valentin, the family estate, since 1996.
Christelle Sorge knew at an early age what she wanted to do in life. After studying oenology in Bordeaux she enriched her knowledge of wine in Chile and Australia. In 1999 she pressed her first vintage on her own, taking over the technical management of Château Deyrem Valentin, which has belonged to her family since 1928. Its neighbours include such world-famous estates as Malescot Saint-Exupéry, Cantenac Brown and Labégorce. While her father still cultivated a very traditional style with tart, edgy wines that were more reminiscent of a Pauillac, Christelle wanted to return to what generally characterizes a Margaux: finesse, suppleness, elegance. "It's true that I like the feminine side of Margaux," she says – which is why she works in the cellar with particular sensitivity and great restraint. Extreme extraction and exaggerated wood ageing are not at all her thing. The 13 hectares of vineyards surrounding the estate stand on a deep gravel base – and in this respect, too, the unclassified Deyrem is no different from classified wineries. The owners of such excellent soils know what they owe them.
