The Professor Enjalbert reminds us of the pioneering spirit needed to bring great Châteaux to their present eminence in these terms: “In the 18th century, the winegrowing revolution in the Libourne area was one of the main consequences of the social and economic evolution.
“The pioneers who managed to launch the new viticulture while, at the same time, developing new markets outside the area, deserve to be mentioned.”
“Land owners and wine merchants achieved to create and offer top quality wines on their own without any outside help.”
