About Chateau de Macard:

The Aubert family has been established in the Saint Emilion and Dordogne region for 250 hundred years. Amélie Aubert with the help of her father Alain and lifelong friend Michel Rolland, is the sixth generation winemaker for the family owned Chateaux since 2000.

Chateau de Macard is located in the village of Pessac sur Dordogne , 95 me-ters above the river, facing south. The terroir is exceptional and unique to the area, it has all the components to make a great wine including Limestone to give minerals, gravel to give elegance and clay to give power.
