Domaines FabreHaut Médoc, Margaux
Gabriel, Vincent’s father, buys in 1964 château Lamothe-Cissac, the family historic property, located at Cissac-Médoc, next to Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe. But the history starts further. Many vestiges from various periods have been discovered on the estate, revealing that, 2000 years ago, the terroir was already considered by the Romans as perfect for producing high-quality wines. In 1964, wine production had stopped when Famille Fabre bought the estate. The 33 hectares of vines making up the vineyard of Château Lamothe have been planted on limestone and gravelly slopes as from April 1967.
In 1976, Gabriel Fabre purchased the vines of Château Landat in the nearby commune of Vertheuil, close to Saint-Estèphe and Cissac-Médoc. In 1982, his son Vincent started in the profession by buying the estate of La Tonnelle, also based in Vertheuil. Gabriel and Vincent worked together ten years, significant works have been undertaken in the wineries in 1986, 1996 and 1999.
Domaines Fabre have extended their range over the years. The acquisition in 2013 of Château Bellevue de Tayac, located on an excellent terroir in Margaux appellation, allows to enlarge their brand and offer their French and foreign consumers wines from one of the major French appellations.
In 1991, Vincent and his wife Florence took over the overall management of Domaines Fabre, joined by Mélanie in 2013, followed in 2017 by her husband Nicolas and Jean-Hubert, the youngest son.
They manage together more than 92 hectares producing wines in the Haut-Médoc and Margaux appellations. Fabre family sells direct and not through “Place de Bordeaux”, following Gabriel’s steps who decided in the early 1970’s to have direct contact with his distributors and his customers. Export sales to 30 countries account for almost 80% of the turnover.
The wine range may be tasted in the wine shop in Margaux from April to September, from 2.30 pm to 7.30 pm from Tuesday to Saturday. Free tasting without appointment.
Local artists exhibit their works in the Margaux property all along the season.
