ALIENOR is a tribute to
Aliénor of Aquitaine and to the substantive contribution she
made to the fine wines of Bordeaux when, eight weeks after the
annulment of her first marriage with Louis VII King of France, she
married her second husband Henry Plantagenêt in 1152, soon
crowned Henry II King of England in 1154, and ascended the throne of
the Kingdom of England after once being Queen of France.
As Queen of England,
Aliénor shared the sustaining traditions of her native
Aquitaine by turning vast areas of France, among them the region of
Bordeaux, into English territory. During her reign, grape production
and wine export, already an important part of everyday life in
Bordeaux, grew to levels unequalled before or since.
remarkable contributions to Bordeaux in the 12th century deserve
ongoing and contemporary recognition, which we offer in this bottle
An accomplishment in the
spirit of Aliénor, prepared in a tenor steeped in the
traditions of Saint-Emilion wines, yet informed by centuries of
practice and refinement, the wine itself is dernier
retains the finer qualities of that which has since been all but
forgotten by the world outside Aquitaine.
