Sélection Châteaux


Uncovering gems


We offer a careful selection of chateau wines, driven by respect for terroirs and an ongoing pursuit of quality. With the utmost respect for people and the terroir, we have established lasting partnerships with winegrowers and chateau owners alike. Through this wide range of chateaus, we are offering wines from various Bordeaux appellations. Some of these wines are made by means of integrated agriculture and include numerous medal winners.

Drawing on the historic expertise of Bordeaux merchants, Yvon Mau selects chateaus for Freixenet Gratien via a review of all their processes, with a constant respect for the terroir and the dedicated individuals who enhance it.

From vine to final product, Yvon Mau began establishing ongoing partnerships with winegrowers and chateau owners nearly 125 years ago.

Yvon Mau is a pioneer in this area, creating a lasting partnership with winegrowers and thus becoming one of the most active trading houses with the greatest involvement in the Bordeaux wine region.

It boasts decades of experience in the region and rigorous wine and chateau selections to offer a wide range of chateaus from numerous appellations (twenty-odd appellations to choose from). Many produce award-winning wines, both from ‘ready-to-drink’ or older vintages, thereby meeting and even exceeding all customers’ expectations.

Sélection Châteaux Bordeaux wines

Well known and well respected all over the world, the Bordeaux wine region offers a wide range of wines spanning brands, chateaus, and Grands Crus with a global reputation.

Located in south-western France, Bordeaux’s vineyards cover more than 110,000 hectares. It is influenced by a temperate oceanic climate and the two rivers flowing through the region: the Garonne and the Dordogne. Its wines have an ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ (protected designation of origin) that requires compliance with a strict set of specifications that governs the winemaking process.

Made primarily from the Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties, the appellation allows for wines in three colours (primarily red at 85% of volume, then white – both dry and sweet – and rosé) and even sparkling wines with Crémant de Bordeaux. There are 65 appellations for Bordeaux wines, and the ‘Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur’ appellation represents 44% of the annual volume.
