Pierre Graffeuille et Matthieu Dumarcher

The director of Château Léoville-Las-Cases in Saint-Julien is Pierre Graffeuille. Following his graduation from the University of Bordeaux with a degree in engineering and oenology, Graffeuille honed his craft in Australia, New Zealand, Burgundy, and the Rhône before returning to Bordeaux. His work with the esteemed Delon family began in 2011. 

A trained oenologist, Matthieu Dumarcher was not a fan of the wines he was taught. His estate was founded in 2006 with the purpose of making fresh, precise wines true to the grapes he grows. In his 5 hectares of old vines, he makes a half dozen bottled wines, such as Côtes du Rhône and Vin de France.

Pierre Graffeuille and Matthieu Dumarcher began producing Odyssée in 2015 as a throwback blend of their own. An organic, sensitively crafted wine that puts all its components to work with powerful poise and can be as engaging as any single-vineyard, single-variety wine.

“We are looking at around a 60/40 blend. We want the blend to be shared almost equally between both regions,” said Graffeuille.
In terms of grapes, “In the Médoc, we have old vines, to the north of Saint-Estèphe,” Graffeuille explained. “These are 50- to 60-year-old vines, located just in front of the river with a high-density planting. The vineyard in the Southern Rhône belongs to us. It is a higher-altitude vineyard, about 30 to 40 kilometers north of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The vines are around 60- to 70-years-old, and the farming is 100% organic.”

The winemaking odyssey starts in each region, before being blended in the Rhône. There is an exquisite harmony between the attributes of both the southern Rhône and the Médoc in this wine.
