Chateau Mayne-Vieil


Introduction

History, family and wine go hand in hand in Bordeaux and Château Mayne- Vieil can be traced back across three influential families to the 1500’s. Descendant of the original owners, the Equerry de Paty, Lord of Mayne-Vieil built the large cellars in the 17th Century. Libournais vintners the Fontemoing’s established a new Fronsac vineyard to rival Saint-Emilion, while the Sèze family, owners for the last 100 years, restored and expanded the estate after World War 1. Now extending to 32ha of Merlot vines, their single Fronsac vineyard can be seen in its entirety as it rolls across the beautiful hill overlooking the Dordogne river.
