Julie and Xavier Gonet-Médeville are, in many ways, the first couple of French wines. Both hail from storied winemaking families: Julie’s family is famous for its incomparable Château Gilette, and Xavier comes from a long line of Champagne growers in Le Mesnil. Leading a new generation of winemakers, they bring their family knowledge, methods and passion to the many wines they now make together.
Julie and Xavier bought the seven-acre Château des Eyrins estate from Eric Grangerou in 2008. The Grangerou family has been cellar masters for Château Margaux for three generations. On a hillside plateau in the heart of Margaux, on the left bank of the Gironde River, Château des Eyrins produces a classic Margaux: dense and deep, with incredible finesse and freshness, the wine undeniably expresses the identity of this glorious appellation.
