Château Coufran & Château Verdignan シャトー・クフラン&シャトー・ヴェルディニャン







Château Coufran

In the XVIII and XIX th century, Château Coufran belonged to the Comte de Verthamon. At that time, Verthamon sold the property to the Celerier family, in whose hands it remained until it was bought by Louis Miailhe in 1924.

The Miailhe family have been brokers in Bordeaux since 1818, which makes them one of the oldest firms in the city. In 1891, Frédéric Miailhe, Jean’s grand-father, purchased the first vineyard in a chain that was to make the Miailhe today one of the largest owners in the Médoc. That first chateau was Siran, then Coufran was the next acquisition of Jean’s father, then Pichon Longueville Lalande was bought by Louis and Edouard and ¼ of Palmer and Citran. Today some of these Chateaux are still owned by members of the family.

Today Eric Miailhe and Marie-Cécile Miailhe-Vicaire are the owners of Chateau Coufran and the neighbour Chateau Verdignan.

When Louis Miailhe bought Coufran, he planted 100 % merlot grapes, which was quite a revolutionary step in the predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon planted Médoc. Today, Coufran still has 85 % merlot.

Chateau Coufran is a member of the “Académie du Vin de Bordeaux” and of the “Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux”.




Château Verdignan

One of the top growths in the village of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne and one of the oldest in the Medoc (18th century), Château VERDIGNAN has 60 hectares of wines, located on the slopes of the rich Haut-Medoc chain of hills, to the north of Saint-Estèphe.

The vineyard enjoys a privileged position, all grouped into one plot, on the eastern slop overlooking the Gironde, on gravelly-clay soil. This together with its choice of grape-varieties: Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet-Franc are what make its wines full-bodied, generous and full of finesse.

This estate, which once belonged to Viscount de Roussy and the Parouty family, was acquired by the Miailhe Family which now owns it, since 1972.
