  1. Château Mirebeau (Pessac Léognan)

    In the spring of 96, the Dubreys from Château d'Ardennes, a Graves wine from Illats, fell in love with the estate which was up for sale, down the road from the heart of Martillac village, near Léognan. Florence and Cyril Dubrey settled on that estate and set their hearts on giving Château Mirebeau the splendour it had known at the turn of the  XXth century.
    First, Cyril Dubrey (an agricultural engineer and enologist) renovated the buildings and invested in the latest technology for the winery and the vineyard. He, then, made every endeavour to become familiar with each and every vinetree in the fields and understand the soil and the sub-soil of each plot until the vinetree, once pruned, de-budded and green-harvested, murmured thank you, so much, Cyril, for your understanding efforts and sensibility towards me.
