Description:
Chateau Teyssier has a long history in the Bordeaux region. In fact, wine has been produced at Chateau Teyssier since the 1700’s. The estate dates back to at least 1714. In fact, during the nineteenth century, Teyssier was the largest wine producer in their sector of the Right Bank. Currently, 10 different wines are produced at this renovated property and each are owned by Jonathan Maltus . With all those wines coming from the estate, perhaps once again, they are the largest operation in the sector.

Tim Atkins considers Chateau Teyssier one of the ten most underrated Bordeaux wines 

Jonathan Maltus caught the wine bug after selling his engineering company in 1991. Chateau Teyssier was bought in 1994 by Jonathan Maltus. One of the first moves Jonathan Maltus made was to bring in the noted consultant, Gilles Pauquet as his consultant. At that time of the original purchase, the Bordeaux vineyards consisted of 5.5 hectares in the Vignonet sector of St. Emilion. Jonathan Maltus increased the size of the Teyssier vineyard almost ten times. Currently, the vineyards of Chateau Teyssier are over 50 fifty hectares in size!

Jonathan Maltus also completely renovated and modernized every aspect of the estate from the vineyards, to the wine making facilities, barrel cellars, vat rooms and even the chateau. The vinification vats were changed from traditional, large cement vats to temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. Everything is state of the art at Chateau Teyssier today. In 2012, they began using optical sorting machines.

The St. Emilion vineyards of Chateau Teyssier have a terroir of sand with iron in the soils. The vineyard of Chateau Teyssier is planted to 80% mERLOT and 20% Cabernet Franc . The wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak, barrels. Up to 15,000 cases of Chateau Teyssier are produced each vintage. Chateau Teyssier also produces a small amount of white wine wine, Contre le Vent.
