Chateau Devise d'Ardilley Cru Bourgeois, Haut Medoc (Bordeaux)
Chateau Devise d'Ardilley was created in 1991. It was classified as a Cru Bourgeois of the Haut Medoc appellation in 2003. The winery is made of modern vat houses and vineyard plots that have been progressively gathered, and if needed, some vines have been replanted. The estate was bought in 2000 by Madeleine and Jacques Philippe who made their dream come true. Born in Bordeaux, she returned to her roots, and he, an engineer by training, wanted to become a winemaker after a carreer in a big services company.
