Chateau de Myrat is a family-owned estate that lies in the Sauternes appellation. The wines of this Sauternes Grand Cru Classe offer an alluring balance, elegance and sophistication.
Chateau de Myrat 2021 is a Sauternes wine that stems from a 22-hectare vineyard located in the Haut-Barsac region and rest on a clay-limestone plateau upon fractured limestone.
