Château Haut-Marbuzet belongs to the Duboscq family since 1952. The château produces great red Bordeaux wines classified as Cru Bourgeois, in theSaint-Estèphe appellation. For more than fifty years, Henri Duboscq has devoted a passionate love to the vine, to the wine and to his terroir. He directs the vinification and production of his wines like a conductor. He manages to sublimate the natural richness of the Saint-Estèphe terroir. Each harvest allows him to produce a vintage of refined and high quality wine. Today, he is accompanied by his two sons, Hugues and Bruno Duboscq, who perpetuate the excellence of the family heritage.

Geographical location of Château Haut-Marbuzet

Located in the Médoc, fifty kilometers from Bordeaux, Château Haut-Marbuzet covers 75 hectares. Saint-Estèphe is ideally positioned on the edge of theGironde estuary. The vineyard benefits from a soil composed of gravel (a mixture of sand, clay, gravel and pebbles) and a clay-limestone subsoil rich in iron. The vines are deliberately planted very densely (9,000 vines/ha on average). This allows us to obtain fewer bunches per vine and better quality grapes. The deeper roots allow us to fully enjoy the typicity of the Saint-Estèphe terroir.
