Etalon Rouge

Vin de Bordeaux


Before being bought by the famous French artist and animal painter, Thierry Bisch, the vineyard Etalon Rouge belonged to the French actor, Gérard Depardieu (and Bernard Magrez, an important chateau owner promoter of great Bordeaux and international wines).

For eight years Denis Dubourdieu, professor of oenology at the University of Bordeaux and wine producer in his own family vineyards, was the Consultant to Etalon Rouge. Unfortunately "the Pope of white wines" died recently, but his legacy remains.

Today Etalon Rouge is owned by a consortium of ten wine lovers from all over the world. Since 2016 Christian Prud'homme, Consultant and former leader of a famous 1st Classified Growth of Pauillac in Bordeaux, assists Clarissa Schaefer, the "Maître de Chai", in applying the rules of bio-dynamics to Etalon Rouge.
