Chateau Malmaison vineyard is located in Moulis on one of the oldest areas of Medoc. This estate is adjacent to Chateau Clarke, which was also purchased by Baron Edmund de Rothschild in 1973. At the time of the purchase Chateau Malmaison was in a state of complete neglect, but was restored to its former glory. The vineyards were replanted in 1974 and 1978, currently cover up to 24 hectares and are perfectly maintained.
The lime and clay soils on which the vines are grown are ideal for the cultivation of the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon strains. During each grape harvest the grapes are picked by hand and then carefully sorted before the vinification process. The wine is aged between 14 and 18 months in oak barrels.
The resulting Malmaison Chateau is delicate, flexible with an elegant tannin and a rich fruity bouquet. Wine with the predominance of the Merlot cultivar, intense in color with a pure aroma of blackberries and plums combined with a well-accented oak note. Tanninous in taste but also juicy and fruity.
