Wine Tasting Lunches at Hameau Albert 1er, Chamonix

Bernard Magrez’s wines (Bordeaux)

This month, we are pleased to introduce Mr. Bernard Magrez’s wines from Bordeaux. 

Born in Bordeaux, Bernard Magrez is a self-taught man. In 1960, his passion for the wine appeared after joining a famous Bordeaux wine house. He began his career as a wine trader. Then, he immersed himself in books and set the target to gain real skills and earn his legitimacy.
In the 1980’s, he purchased the prestigious vineyard ‘Château Pape Clément,  the’ Château Fombrauge’ in 1999, and the ‘Château La Tour Carnet, and then 18 others renowned  vineyards of Bordeaux, also  including Clos Haut-Peyraguey. In total : 40 properties and more than 1000 hectares of vineyard in the world,  more recently the ‘Château Les Grands Chênes, Cru Bourgeois in Médoc.

Bernard Magrez works historically in collaboration with the French oenologist Michel Rolland since 1990. He received a mark of 100/100 for a ‘Château Pape Clément white 2009 grand cru of Pessac-léognan awarded by the famous American critic Robert Parker. The following year, it’s the red wine which obtains the same consecration for the 2014 vintage.

The morning tasting session is followed by a gastronomic lunch in the Albert 1er restaurant. Pierre proposes you a menu elaborated match perfectly with the Wines of the domain. The winemaker will take pleasure in joining you at the table.
