Château du Raux

Only a small percentage of the wines produced in Bordeaux are famous and expensive. Lesser-known estates like Château du Raux stand for quality at a moderate price.

The Médoc, the wine peninsula to the north of the city of Bordeaux, is considered to be the realm of the nobility's great, world-famous wine châteaux producing expensive, top-quality wines. Most of them are owned by long-established wine-trading families or by newcomers seeking profitable capital investments. But there is also a fair number of wineries belonging to the group historically known as "crus bourgeois", run by real winemakers who see their work as a craft. Château du Raux in Cussac is one of them. Owned by the same family since 1878, this estate of around 20 hectares is managed by Patrick Bernard.
The vines of Château du Raux grow in Cussac, a commune in the heart of the Haut-Médoc between Margaux and Saint-Julien. They are situated around the winery itself on gravel and sand soils over a loam subsoil. This combination is particularly suitable for viticulture, as it allows for optimum grape ripening even in climatically difficult years. The vines, half of them Merlot and half Cabernet Sauvignon, are planted in line with these natural conditions.
Every stage – vineyard work, harvesting, vinification and ageing – follows traditional rules, up to and including around 12 months of ageing in oak barriques. This results in a particularly honest, genuine Haut-Médoc with the classic Bordeaux characteristics, combining elegance, power and suppleness and guaranteeing top quality at an unbeatable price.
