The vineyard of Chateau Domeyne is located on a beautiful hill of big gravels and it surrounds the vineyard of Chateau Calon-Segur. The property confirmed in 2003 its ranking of the 1932 Cru Bourgeois and collects good scores every year. Excellent facilities allow the winemaking of a wine full of nuances and personality. In 2006, Chateau Domeyne was bought by Claire Vilars Lurton, owner of Chateau Haut-Bages Libral and Chateau Ferriere (5th Classified Growth of Pauillac and 3rd Classified Growth of Margaux) and her husband, Gonzague Lurton, owner of Chateau Durfort Vivens (2nd Classified Growth of Margaux). They put all their know-how to lift this wine among the best in the classification of Saint Estephe.
