Chateau Malrome, Saint-Andre-Du-Bois
(4/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
The Château Malromé is located in the commune Saint-André-du-Bois, in the French department of Gironde. It became the home of the mother of the painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.VineyardThe vineyard of Malromé, which covers a surface area of around forty hectares, is situated on slopes of gravelly clay. Its soil has been renowned over the centuries.HistoryThe first recorded occurrence of the château and its vineyard dates from the 16th century, with the construction of "a noble house of taste" by Étienne de Rostéguy de Lancre, a member of the Parliament of Bordeaux.Towards 1780, the château passed to Catherine de Forcade, the widow of the Baron de Malromé, who renamed it in memory of her spouse.In 1847, the château became the property of Adolphe de Forcade La Roquette, Vice-President of the Conseil d'État under Napoleon III, and his half-brother, Maréchal Armand-Jacques Leroy de Saint-Arnaud, governor of Paris and Minister of War. These two men had the château restored "in the manner of Viollet-le-Duc".In 1883, the Countess Adèle de Toulouse-Lautrec acquired the building, attracted by its proximity to Verdelais, a nearby shrine and place of pilgrimage.Her son, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, often visited the château. It was here that he died, on 9 September 1901.

  • Magnificent Castle which is in full restoration. A guide who made us relive Toulouse Lautrec with passionate comments. We had visited the Museum of Albi, but here we had another look at the painter. The visit ended with a very pleasant tasting. Thanks to them both.

  • We spent probably 2 hours with guide and wine tasting here, and (for once?) almost completely also in English. It is very nice, clear and with background Henri de Toulouse Lautrec narrated history and the emergence of various images (there are many reproductions hang it, an original charcoal drawing is exposed locally as 'Graffiti'). Toulouse Lautrec's mother lived in the Chateau, until her death - Henri spent the summer here and died here, too. The visit is recommended because of the attention to detail and the incredibly nice and informative accompaniment in the Castle. At the tasting a good Bordeaux is then maybe you would like to take with.

  • Very beautiful castle. The life of Toulouse Lautrec is told by the owner of the premises. She is passionate about and makes us this exciting tour. I sends a big thank you because I had a very nice time.
