The Barreyre family is a prominent Bordelais family of bourgeois origin, which may explain why the estate weathered the French Revolution and remains within the family, even until this day. Chateau Barreyre is evidence of just how fine many of Bordeaux's smaller, lesser known estates, called petits chateaux, can be. A 22-acre property with a view of the Gironde and the nearby port of Macau, Chateau Barreyre actually lies within the Medoc. It is in fact quite close to Margaux. Yet, on account of its proximity to the river, Chateau Barreyre is only entitled to the appellation Bordeaux Superieur – a boon to savvy consumers looking for bona fide Bordeaux at an affordable price.
Black currant and tart blackberry notes mingle with hints of spice box and soy. Approachable-style, with a ripe and velvety texture and soft tannins in the vibrant finish.

The Château Barreyres current owner, Pierre Castel acquired the château in 1971.
The team takes a plot by plot approach to winemaking. Despite its surface area, each plot is treated differently in accordance with its growth. From the Arcins croup, the vines extend around the château on soils and subsoils of clay and sandy gravel. On soils composed largely of Pyrenean gravel thrives the Cabernet Sauvignon that constitutes 55% of the vineyard. Below, clay soils provide the perfect conditions for Merlot, which makes up 45% of the vineyard.
Château Barreyres benefits from slightly shallower root depth than its neighbours, resembling more closely the nearby Margaux vineyard. With roots worthy of the region’s finest properties, each plot of vines is unique.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
