SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The very first trace of the Château Magdeleine Bouhou goes back to the 18th century, with the mention of the Domaine de Bouhou in a Bouhou, “bouhar” in Gascon, means to blow. A name undoubtedly inspired by the winds of the estuary blowing hard at this place. So strong that he could blow the local boha or bagpipe on his own. In the 19th century, it became the property of Bordeaux merchants, Arnaut and Jeantet. The wife of the first and the daughter of the second are both called Madeleine, they are two women of character. As a hyphen between the two families, the property then takes the name of Magdeleine Bouhou. As early as 1868, Château Magdeleine-Bouhou was classified Premier Cru Bourgeois in the second edition of “Bordeaux and its wines”, reference guide of Ch. Cocks & Ed.Féret. In 1908, Jean Chaumet bought the property with his only savings. In 1922, he disappeared prematurely. His son Roger interrupts his studies as a notary and succeeds his father. Visionary, he decided in 1930 to sell in bottles the mythical 1929 vintage. In 1954, Mireille, his daughter, married Guy Rousseau, a winemaker too. He will do a lot of work and landscaping at the property. Until the arrival of her daughter Muriel in 2004. Muriel knows by heart the profession of vine and wine. She wishes to transmit the spirit of the domain, that has lasted for three generations. The property then undergoes important beautification works. In 2010, its requirement pushes it even further. She decides to call on the consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt to accompany her in this desire to make the best of the property and its terroir. Producing wines adapted to new consumption patterns while keeping a signature house becomes a major issue for Muriel Rousseau-Revaire. To carry out this ambitious work, she relies on a dynamic and solid team with Frédéric Marchais for the technical part and Yann Couturier for the commercial part.
