The 2017 “Closerie des Eyrins,” like the previous vintage, thunders across the palate with extreme polish and dark-fruited intensity, but shows much more precision, elegance, and harmony overall. Still, there is immense structure and underlying luxury that is endemic to the world-famous, inimitable terroir of Margaux.

The estate is well-situated, on top of a hillside plateau of des Trois Moulins, in the heart of the Margaux appellation on the left bank of the Gironde River. It is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, and features 40-years-old vines.

Grapes are hand-harvested, fermented in stainless steel tanks, then macerated for 21 days. 50% aged in new oak barrels, 50% in tanks for 18 months.

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 Chateau 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.
