WINE MAKER | Fabrice Darmaillacq

Fabrice Darmaillacq first started studying medicine but it was a number of minor roles in wine cellars that led him to discover his true passion was oenology. He then graduated with a degree in oenology from Bordeaux University and first started his career in Pauillac before heading for the Languedoc, as technical director for Ostal Cazes (Domaines Jean-Michel Cazes) where he created and developed the famous estate. With 13 years of experience under his belt, Fabrice decided to move back to Bordeaux in August 2016 to take on a new challenge at the head of Château Clarke: leading the wines to become some of the best in the region. Fabrice is married with three children and he is also a big rugby fan!

THE VINEYARD

THE VINEYARD

This property, which adjoins Château Clarke, was purchased by Baron de Rothschild in 1973. Thanks to his impetus, the vineyard was restored to its former glory. He named the wine after his spouse, the Baroness Nadine de Rothschild, a passionate gardener. The vineyard now covers 33 hectares of clay-limestone soil, which is ideal for Merlot, the predominant grape variety. Château Malmaison allies delicacy, suppleness and elegance with a rich and fruity bouquet.
