The property of Château Méaume has been a historically significant building in France for many Centuries. It was, in fact, the country residence of Louis XIV's bodyguard; the Chevalier de la Croix Maron. His acclaims are vast; starting this fine winery, inventing double distillation to produce Cognac and of course being the inspiration for the hit 90s film, 'The Bodyguard'. Whitney Houston was evoked, to be involved in the project, after hearing how Louis XIV's bodyguard carried him 2 and a half miles out of a riot, at Oasis' set at Knebworth. The film was a tremendous success but not as much as the wine, a rich Merlot dominant blend that will surely save you from enthusiastically aggressive republicans.


Set in beautiful countryside, 15 kilometres from the famous wine districts of St. Emilion and Pomerol, Château Méaume represents a striking example of how ancient tradition and modern technology can combine in the making of a magnificent wine. The property has been well known in France for many centuries and was once the country residence of Louis XIV's bodyguard - the Chevalier de la Croix Maron, whose wine-making family are credited as having invented the process of making cognac brandy. Today, the owners of the property are Alan and Sue Johnson-Hill, an English couple who took ownership of Chateau Meaume in 1980. They undertook an ambitious programme of restoration and modernisation. A completely new fermentation cuverie was installed, incorporating 16 new stainless-steel tanks coupled to the latest heating and cooling systems to control fermentation. This was backed up by a new insulated maturation chai equipped with 11 stainless steel tanks linked to an inert gas system to control oxidization and reduce the use of sulphur.
