The history of Château Loudenne is inextricably linked with the British wine trade.
Built in the 17th century, Loudenne had many owners until 1875 when it was sold
to two English brothers, Walter and Alfred Gilbey.  The Gilbeys were already well
known wine and spirit merchants in London and producers of the gin of the same
name.  The wines of Loudenne prospered in the British trade, surviving two world
wars and underwent a renovation programme in the 1960s and 70s.  Under the
energetic and experienced management of Martin Bamford MW Château Loudenne
remained part of Gilbey’s despite successive
take-overs.  Finally owned by
Diageo, who eventually sold the Château after more than a century of English
ownership.  The grand vin, Château Loudenne, a Médoc Cru Bourgeois Supérieur,
is a blend of 48% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1%
Malbec.  Vinified in stainless steel or concrete vats with the malolactic fermentation
in new French oak casks.  The élevage lasts 16 months in casks of which 30% are
renewed every year.  Michel Rolland is the consultant oenologist.
