Mayne-Vieil was then purchased by the Fontemoing family; a group of renowned vintners from Libourne. They created a new Fronsac vineyard which produced the so-called "new french claret"-high and aged wines similar to those being produced by the English merchants from the Chartrons in the Médoc.
In 1918, Louis SEZE acquired the property. A few years later, he abandoned his notary office to devote himself to Mayne-Vieil. His son Roger, an agronomist who succeeded him in the early 1950's, expanded the vineyards to make a contigous and beautiful plateau . He was the first proprietor of Mayne Vieil to begin bottling and selling the wine directly to private clients.
His children Bertrand and Marie-Christine Sèze succeeded Roger SEZE in the 1980's. They enlarged the domain of Mayne Vieil to more than 10 hectares.
