Chateau Mille Roses Renaissance – A thousand Roses
The château’s renaissance began in 1999 when David Faure inherited the 18th-century Haut-Médoc property from his late parents. When he decided to plant a vineyard on its lone acre, he re-christened the estate, Mille Roses. Most notably, French for “thousand roses” — to honor his mother’s love for the fragrant flower.
While the property’s acreage steadily blossomed under the care of David and his wife Sophie. Today, the duo oversees around 13.5 acres of Haut-Médoc vines, with an additional 10 acres planted right down the road in Margaux. Furthermore, they keep production small — 1,950 cases a year — most of which are consumed in Europe. Bottles like the Château Mille Roses Haut-Médoc 2014 Bordeaux reflect David’s unflinching desire to create an authentic interpretation of the terroir’s voice.
