Since 2012, the Château has belonged to the Austruy Vineyards. This château is an illustration of the classic vineyard producing great Haut-Medoc wines. The quality of its vintages and the particular terroir have made this estate famous. Located between Margaux and Saint-Julien, in the commune of Lamarque, the Château has now regained its reputation. The cellar has been completely renovated, the vineyard has been restructured in the smallest details and the magnificent Chartreuse adjoining the property has been restored to its slate roof.

On this prestigious terroir of the Graves, the farmers cultivate Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Verdot where the three grape varieties are fully expressed. Only red wine is produced on this estate, which offers one cuvée per year in the Haut-Médoc appellation and classified as a Cru Bourgeois. The second wine of the estate is called Le Moulin Rose de Malescasse.

Our story

Château Malescasse was built in 1824 in a neoclassical style, typical of the great houses of the Médoc. It is to the Renouil family that the Austruy Vineyards owe this magnificent building. Guy Terresson, in the 1970s and at the time owner of Pontet-Canet in Pauillac and Lafon-Rochet in Saint-Estèphe, bought this château.

When he acquires it, the vine is in slow motion. With the help of his son Alfred, he undertook the complete restoration of the Château and the redesign of the vineyard: he went further than that by completely replanting the vineyard.

After being acquired in 1992 by Alcatel-Alshtom, the telecommunications group refocused on its core activities and sold the estate to Philippe Austruy.

Today, the estate boasts 6,000 m² of wooded land, a magnificent château and 40 hectares of vines.

Other little stories

Philippe Austruy is not at his first attempt in terms of company management such as wine estates. This influential player in the health sector is also passionate about wine and its world. After having given back his letters of nobility to the Commanderie de Peyrassol, in Provence, he acquired the magnificent Médoc property. It restores all its beauty to Malescasse, in particular by renovating this chartreuse.
