Winery information

Château de Myra has a history that begins in the late 1700's, many transfers and a lack of documentation makes it difficult to monitor developments. However, it is reasonably clear that it is the family Dumirat who made the chateau its name in the early 1800's. The name was Château Mirat which was later revised to Château de Mirat. During the 1855 classification the castle was owned by the family Molle, which at that time got Château de Mirat classified in Les seconds Crus.

 

When Château de Myra got the current spelling is unclear but it must have been after the classification 1855.

 

Despite the extensive restoration of the vineyard, which was completed 1945, Max de Pontac was not pleased with the results, and 1976 he took the courageous decision to pull all the vines at Château de Myra. This was a shocking decision that has never before been implemented among the classified castles in Sauternes

The suns Jacques and Xavier became clear with the new plantings 1988, and today Château de Myra withdrawn its role among the classified castles in Sauternes.

 

Château de Myra is on a raised plateau in Barsac. The property has a total area of 30 hectares, of which 8 hectares is a park. The soil is typical of Barsac, with significant involvement of lime and clay. Planting is broken down into 88% Semillon, Sauvignon 8% 4% Muscadelle.
