      The Château

      What we know of today as Château Charmail dates back to the 1500’s, when it was founded by the Trevey de Charmail family. Vines were not planted until the 17th century, about one years later, give or take. However, the modern era beings in 1982, when Olivier Seze purchased the Haut Medoc estate.
      By the time Olivier Seze purchased Château Charmail, Olivier Seze was already well established in the Bordeaux wine community, due to his experience as an agricultural engineer.
      Château Charmail and Olivier Seze are best known in the Bordeaux wine trade for being the first chateau to practice the now common and popular, technique of pre fermentation, cold maceration, whereby the temperature of the fruit in the tanks is dropped to as low as 5 degrees Celsius and the berries are held in the vats for as long as two weeks. Olivier Seze sold Château Charmail to Bernard and Marie d’Halluin in 2008

      Current owner: Bernard D’Halluin
      Soils: Gravelly clay
      Farming: Manual in all parts of the vineyard. A precursor in green harvesting
      Vines: From 6,700 to 8,700 vines per hectare. On average 30 years
