88-91/100 - Wine Spectator
What violets and dark fruit, with mineral on the nose. Medium-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a raspberry and currant finish. Yes. —J.S

My first wine memory
An old vintage of Château d'Yquem at my great-great grandfather's, after a long Christmas Eve dinner.

One word to describe my wine
Generous

The history of the Château
Château Preuillac is located in Lesparre, in the heart of the Medoc appellation. Its wines were often rewarded since the 19th century at least and the property was classified in 1932 when the classification of Crus Bourgeois was created. It is owned since 1998 by the MAU and the DIRKZWAGER families. Since then, it has been managed by Jean-Christophe Mau. Large-scale investments were dedicated to the vineyard and the winery, aiming at giving a new surge to Château Preuillac.
