Famille Helfrich to release first Margaux vintage

Published:  09 June, 2017

Famille Helfrich is to release the first vintage from its Margaux property - Château La Fortune.

The premium on-trade and independents arm of Les Grands Chais de France (Groupe GCF) said the 2015 vintage was set for an imminent launch and would be available from the on-trade and independents in the UK market.

This would be followed by the release of the 2016 en primeurs, with both vintages described as “exceptional”.

Having developed expertise and gained experience with many other premium properties throughout France, the team at Famille Helfrich had applied a “highly tailored approach” in order to bring out the best in the wine, said sales director Chris Davies.

“We have a talented team at Château La Fortune and the release of the 2015, the first vintage 100% managed by our team, is a significant and exciting occasion as we push ahead with our focus on high quality wines with tremendous finesse.”

Château La Fortune, which the wine maker has managed since 2014, was the first property purchase by Famille Helfrich in Margaux.
