Château Eyquem


Located in the Côtes de Bourg, on the right bank of the Gironde, the vines were first planted here by the Romans. The prestigious 17th century manor house, Château Eyquem, was once the home of Louis d’Eyquem, a relative of the famous philosopher, Michel Eyquem de Montaigne.

The Château has a magnificent panoramic view of the Gironde estuary where the Dordogne and the Garonne rivers meet. The vineyard has a fine clay-limestone soil and temperate microclimate thanks to the nearby rivers. Owners since the 20th century, we have refurbished the Château and expanded the vineyard. In keeping with our respect to the environment, vines at Château Eyquem are grown according to the precepts of sustainable viticulture.


With cellars located in a former quarry, this estate has a first class vineyard producing a well-structured and refined wine. It has a fine ruby-red color and a powerful bouquet with hints of violet and many of the characteristics of a great wine. Château Eyquem has very good ageing potential and is always very much appreciated by connoisseurs.


Thanks to the diversity and the complexity of its aromas, Château Eyquem goes perfectly with red meat, either grilled or marinated, as well as fish with a strong flavour and cheeses. Château Eyquem is also amazing served with Asian food.
