Chateau Lapin Imperial is located on the right bank of France’s Bordeaux region. Established in the 18th century, the vineyard was formerly owned by the Beylots family whose members served as the Presidents of Bordeaux Parliament for nearly two centuries. When wine merchant Jean-Pierre Angliviel de la Beaumelle bought the chateau in 2006, he enlisted the help of master winemaker Francois Despagne to upgrade all the equipment and transforming the property’s fermentation chamber into a wine laboratory. The Despagne family make wine for seven generations until Francois finally became family head and took control of the vineyard in 1996. His unrivalled passion, wisdom and knowledge of grapes brought the wines of Chateau Lapin Imperial to a whole new level.
