Château Clauzet is owned by Baron Maurice Velge. He first purchased a couple hectares of vineyards in Saint-Estèphe from Château de Côme, in 1997. He purchased a little later Château Clauzet and its 6 hectares, then gradually increased to the current 23 hectares. The vineyards are neighbors of Lafite and Cos d’Estournel and have very similar soils, deep gravel and gentle slopes thus providing good drainage. Winemaker José Bueno worked for 23 years at Baron Philippe de Rothschild with Château Clerc Milon and Château d’Armailhac. Château Clauzet only makes one wine.
