Gaining access to the Top ten Chateaux

Rare moments for the happy few...

Visit Bordeaux’s most confidential spots that perfectly illustrate the French Art de Vivre (literally "art of living" or way of life), reserved for an exclusive circle of connoisseurs or influential VIPs.

Ten star wines form an elite group from Bordeaux Chateaux – you’d love to have access to the private circle of the top ten chateaux that produce less than 2 million bottles but that reach record prices during en primeur* sales. Tours of these chateaux are mainly reserved for key players in the world of wine, major collectors, captains of industry, celebrities and famous artists.

Meet emblematic owners, CEOs and cellar masters who will welcome you inside the chateaux and private homes to taste famous vintages and learn about the subtleties of the wine market.

Become a Bordeaux wine ambassador and join the privileged circle of the “happy few” during an enthronement ceremony of the famous fraternal order of the Commanderie du Bontemps du Médoc et des Graves organized in the private sitting rooms of Chateau Haut Bailly. Between wine tasting and haute cuisine, you’re invited to share the secrets of a Grand Cru wine and the pleasure of an exquisite private table during a gourmet dinner prepared by the chateau’s chef.

These privileged moments are a moment for sharing and emotion while drinking great wines with the men and women who make them. It’s simply magical and ever so rare.

* En primeur, or opening offer wines, is a French wine trade term which refers to the release and sale of wine by growers and their merchants before they are bottled and ready for physical delivery.
