"The Chateau Maison Blanche name and architectural profile were renowned 19th century beacons. Old editions of the Feret Guide (the "Bordeaux wine bible") place the estate among the most famous of the 19th-century Crus Bourgeois."
"In 1998, Patrick Bouey bought Chateau Maison Blanche at the same time as Chateau Lestruelle. He appreciated the incredible potential of this northern Medoc terroir and invested heavily in modernizing the vineyards. Pruning, trellising and other cultivation methods are assessed and revised with strict adherence to soil balance principles. A new thermoregulated fermenting room is also being introduced."- Importer
