CHÂTEAU ODILON | MÉDOC, BORDEAUX, FRANCE

Previously named Château Peyre-Lebade based on its geographical location, the estate was renamed Château Odilon, in honour of painter Odilon Redon who spent his childhood and most of his working life on the property. His most famous paintings were inspired by the bucolic landscapes of the Médoc, scattered with moor and marshlands.

WINE MAKER | Fabric Darmaillacq

Fabrice 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

In 1979, after being neglected for several years, the property was acquired by Baron Edmond de Rothschild who already owned the neighbouring estates: Châteaux Clarke and Malmaison. This acquisition marked the beginning of a new era, starting with the complete restructuring of the vineyards and restoration of the buildings. The 55 hectares of the estate are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (24%), Merlot (64%), and Cabernet Franc (12%). The limestone-rich geology of the site certainly influenced the original name of the property, since Peyre-Lebade means ‘raised rock’ (pierre levée).
