About Chateau Malescasse:
Château Malescasse was built in 1824 on the highest land in the commune of Lamarque. In 1870 it belonged to the Renouille family; during the nineteen twenties it was purchased by the Dugoujon-Verat de Montagne family.
The château changed hands a number of times before Raymond Philippe, a Paris stockbroker, sold it in 1970 to an American group.
It passed into ownership of the Tesseron family in 1979.
This family subsequently sold the property on to Alcatel Alsthom.
The vineyard surrounding the château is situated on one of the best gravelly hilltops to be found between Margaux and St Julien Beychevelle, near the river, which makes it an exceptional quality growing area with deep, well drained soil.
All the necessary elements are there: climate tempered by the proximity of the river, a noble "terroir", proven technical input and, most important, the respect and savoir-faire of the men who work under Georges Pauli. Without the necessary intimacy between man and nature, it is impossible to make a great wine.
