Winemaker Notes

This growth belonged to the Bonie family for more than a century before being purchased in 1956 by Mr. Gabriel Meffre, who also owns Château Canteloup in Saint-Estèphe. Its vineyard is composed of two main parcels, one adjoining Château Montrose and the other lying on a very gravelly slope facing the famous growth of Lafite-Rothschild.

Thanks to the quality of the soil and the grapes planted, mostly Cabernet-Sauvignon, La Commanderie produces a robust wine with an incomparable bouquet much appreciated in France and abroad. It is distributed exclusively through the Bordeaux trade.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 89
Wine Spectator

Fresh mushroom, tobacco and ripe fruit aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with soft, silky tannins and a medium finish. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2012. 2,665 cases made.

Chateau La Commanderie, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau La Commanderie
La Commanderie was built in the 12th century by Guillaume de Plaigne, a Cathar Lord, who took an active role in the Battle of Avignonet and afterwards joined the besieged stonghold at the famous siege of Montsegur. In the 16th century, Barthelemy de Plaigne extended the chateau by creating the Salle des Chevaliers. His daughter, Anne de Plaigne, who married the Count de Pibrac in 1642, sold Plaigne to François-Paul de Béon-Massès-Cazaux, head of the order of St Jonh in Toulouse, who, in 1685, established this domain as a Commanderie of the Knights of Malta. It remained in their ownership until the French Revolution. In the 19th century, the chateau belonged to Mr de Nicol, who modernized the building, and it remained in this family for a century, the last descent being Vilolette de Ferluc.

La Commanderie was bought in 1973 by Marie-France Gregory, mother of the present owner; it has been completely restored and furnished in period style by this family of artists and art lovers.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
