The owners felt that the grapes needed a worthy architectural and technological showcase so they built a new vat room (with small stainless steel and oak vats to ferment fruit from each plot separately) as well as a new first year cellar in 2005. The wines finish ageing in former underground quarries. These magical cellars, spread out over more than two hectares, are visited by thousands of wine enthusiasts every year.
The château also features a 12-room boutique hotel and a natural swimming pool. Franc Mayne epitomises everything that has made Saint-Émilion world-famous!
