Undaunted by the passage of time, two
sphinxes flank the entrance, serenely watching over the
spirit of the wine
Nestling discreetly in the shadow of Château Barreyres,
an impressive building dating back to the 19th century,
we find the winery, guarded this time by silent statues,
Greeks and Romans who watch patiently over the production
of this highly distinctive wine.
But beyond the stones and the gravel, the marble and the
oaks, the sphinx and the statues, we see the people. These
are the real guardians of the spirit of the Médoc,
those who ensure that the famous tradition of elegance and
finesse will never be lost.
Nestled in the heart of the Médoc between Arcins
and the Gironde, the vineyards of Château Barreyres
are planted on a clay and sandy gravel soil, and slope gently
towards the estuary. It is a distinctive terroir, and one
which gives this Haut Médoc Cru Bourgeois a very
distinctive, feminine character.
