La Grande Maison de Bernard Magrez
To make the heart of an old Bordeaux house beat, passion is imperative. It is necessary to know how to transcend it, to listen to the aspiration of the travelers, to detect the part of madness which will upset a hotel concept, to understand what each host comes to look for it to offer it to him. The global ambassador of taste, Pierre Gagnaire and the composer of rare wines, Bernard Magrez, united for the best of the French table, invite you to live an exceptional experience in this magnificent home where the French know-how and the refinement will be the key words.
At the heart of Bordeaux, in a mansion of the late nineteenth century, now nestles a 5-star hotel with 6 prestigious rooms and an exceptional table, symbolizing the complicity of two great visionaries of gastronomy.

Château Langoa Barton
In 1722, Thomas Barton left his native Ireland to settle in Bordeaux and founded a wine trading company, which today still have the name of Barton.
In 1821 his grandson Hugh Barton acquired Château Langoa, an elegant residence built in 1758. Its architecture and its harmonious proportions and its 20 hectares of vines planted in the Saint Julien appellation, seduced Hugh who renamed it “Chateau Langoa Barton” . In the 1855 classification, Hugh Barton, passionate and in love with his wine, was rewarded with the addition of the property to the rank of “3rd Cru Classé”.
Many generations succeed at the head of the property and it is Anthony Barton who has invested in modern equipment and have thus magnified the wines of Chateau Langoa Barton. The story of Barton continues to be written with his daughter, Lilian, supported by his two children, representing the 10th generation.
In the 1855 classification, Langoa Barton was already owned by the Barton family. They share to this day, with only Mouton-Rothschild, the privilege of such a long family continuity.
The 20 hectares of Château Langoa Barton, planted in a gravel soil on a clay subsoil, are divided into the following grape varieties: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc. These are the traditional grape varieties of Médoc. The average age of the vines is 37 years old.
A real gem of the appellation, Château Petit-Village is located on the highest part of the magnificent plateau of Pomerol. The vineyard forms a triangle of about ten hectares in the heart of Pomerol and benefits from the meticulous know-how and the constant attention of the property team.
At Château Petit-Village, each plot has its own personality. The wine works are therefore made to measure.
Merlot, king of Pomerol, dominates (75%). It brings roundness, generosity and velvety. Cabernet Franc (18%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (7%) provide the spice, depth and aging ability.
Château Petit-Village’s style is characterized by the successful combination of traditional Pomerol (Merlot and Cabernet Franc) grapes enhanced by the freshness and spices of Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Château Petit-Village wines, supple, powerful and harmonious, possess the richness and incomparable finesse of the great Pomerol.
Château Pichon Baron
The creation of the estate dates back to the end of the 17th century, Pierre Desmezures de Rauzan, a great wine merchant and manager of the prestigious estates of Latour and Margaux, bought vines in 1689 located near the Domaine de Latour, to create the Rauzan Enclosure.
These vines enter the dowry of his daughter Thérèse when she marries Baron Jacques Pichon de Longueville in 1694, date of the founding of the Pichon Longueville estate. Thus is born a great estate, which will remain in the family for several generations, and whose reputation will not be denied.
Château Pichon Baron, Second Grand Cru Classé in 1855, is one of the historic vineyards of Bordeaux.
The vineyard extends on beautiful lands of serious south of the town of Pauillac. The appellation enjoys a relatively warm and humid climate. Bright, airy, it is influenced by the proximity of the Gironde to the rhythm of its tides. The 73 ha of the Pichon Baron estate spread over gravelly soils of very high quality. This unique land, low in nutrients and without excess water, sparingly feeds the different varieties of vine stock with an average age of 35 years. Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the vast vineyard of Pichon Baron has resulted in a meticulous division of parcels. Shaped like a goldsmith piece, each parcel benefits from a precise work and adapted to its profile. The great terroir of the hillock of Pichon Baron, historical plot of the estate, already in production at the creation of the vintage in 1694, is dedicated solely to the production of the Grand Vin and represents today the major part of its assembly.
Mas de Daumas Gassac

The vineyard of 44 hectares of vines, is planted, in small clearings in the middle of 120 hectares of Mediterranean forest, thus preserving a landscape dominated by garrigue and wild nature.

Château Leoville Barton
In 1722, Thomas Barton left his native Ireland to settle in Bordeaux and founded a wine trading company, which today still have the name of Barton. In 1826, his grandson Hugh Barton concluded the purchase of 50 hectares of vineyards from the former Domaine de Léoville. These parcels of vines, located on the Saint Julien appellation, are renamed “Léoville Barton”. During the historic classification of 1855, the castle will be distinguished from the title of “second Cru Classé”.
Many generations succeed each other at the head of the property and it is up to Anthony Barton to have hoisted the fame of Château Léoville Barton at the current international level. The story of Barton continues to be written with his daughter, Lilian, supported by his two children, representing the 10th generation.
The vineyard of Château Léoville Barton is located in the heart of the terroir of St Julien. On one of the most beautiful hills of Garonne gravel, facing the Gironde, the clay-gravel subsoil makes it possible to regulate wonderfully the climatic hazards of the year. The different heights of depth left by the river offer us a mosaic of plots whose complexity, magnified by the “alchemy” of the blend, gives birth to one of the greatest wines in the world.
The area is 50 hectares, the grape variety is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc with an average age of 35-40 years old vines.
The passion of the Antony family arises with the meeting in 1979 of Master Pierre Androuët, great prophet at the time of the white gold. Thus was born the first cellar refining in 1983, then the tasting cellar in 1986. Today, the house has seven cellars refining.
Through the meetings, over time, many great chefs have fallen under the spell of their dear products refined with love. And a few years later there are 19 restaurants 3 stars Michelin that entrust Antony with the selection of their cheese platters.
Frequent traveler, Bernard Antony loves to bring good cheese to the world. From Paris to Hong Kong, New York and Berlin, there are many opportunities to discover these treasures of the French soil.
Today it is two generations in the service of taste since the son, Jean-François, joined the father, Bernard, in the family cheese dairy.
Since 1969 we have been quietly yet steadily developing and honing our cheese-making skills under the vaults of our maturation and refinement cellar.
Just as only the very best of produce can tell the sweetest of tales, only unpasteurised cheeses can sing clear the ’song’ of their origins and of the love and infinite care lavished upon them by their makers and those who tend them.
The nurture of cheeses of the very highest quality calls for experience, patience and exceptional love and care, so that connoisseurs and cheese-lovers alike can hear the ’song’ in the savour.

Château Climens is the highest vineyard in the Barsac appellation, an incomparable terroir where one finds a truly wonderful expression of Semillon. Such innate distinction, completed by the consecutive owners’ great care, soon earned Climens the name of ‘Lord of Barsac’, and the title of First classified growth of Sauternes in 1855.
The vineyard’s surface area, a single vineyard of 30 hectares has remained unchanged since the 16th century.
