The very first wines to emerge from Le Chai were those of our adopted Bordeaux homeland. Our chief winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua, Bordeaux-born himself, has contacts like no other! Friendships built up over decades give us access to the highest-quality grapes. From Margaux to Pomerol, Pauillac, Saint-Émilion and the like, our Trophy-winning head winemaker expertly selects cuvées from Bordeaux’s greatest appellations, maturing them in fine oak casks within our cool quayside cellars, then carefully blending them.


We only release these clarets when they are ready for drinking – delicious modern clarets with luscious fruit and lots of charm, yet the structure for cellaring, too. Superb drinking at an affordable price – these fine clarets embody our winemaking philosophy at Le Chai – Le Grand Chai from Bordeaux.
