This is a wonderful parcel of vines sandwiched in between plots owned by Château Latour & Château Lynch Bages. Just half a hectare here and the old vines produce a fabulous fruit. It does not have a winery so it can’t be called « Château » and the terroir here is distinct from the other property in Pauillac owned by the Meffre family: Château Bellegrave. For this reason, the wine for the 3000 bottles produced here is vinified separately, to make this exclusive label for Borderac Crus & Vins. The wine here is elegant with coarse tannins which will harmonize with the fruit over the next 5‐10 years. The name comes from the parcel of vines and every connoisseur should have this in their cellar.
Gabriel Meffre at Dapraut is the master behind Dauprat. His château that stands opposite Ducru Beaucaillou is one of the rare Crus Bourgeois of the appellation. He has been purchasing properties in Saint Julien and Pauillac for the last 40 years and renovating them, improving the work in the vineyard and making the cellars into buildings that would turn his prestigious neighbors green with envy! A man who is driven by the search for perfection in the wines he makes. Mr. Meffre trusts the consulting laboratory of the late genius Denis Dubordieu – a man to whom he trusted his vinification for decades
