"Carved out between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde estuary, the Medoc, the "land in the middle" according to the etymology, is the home to the lands of Beaumont, which in the 18th century were nothing but moors, heaths, fields, and wastelands, owned by the Duc de Duras, marshal of France and member of the Academie Française.
The land was cleared as from 1772, and the estate became the property of Henri Labarthe, who cleaned it up and prepared it for growing vines. The vineyard of Beaumont was born in 1824, with its new owner Mr. Bonnin. From 1830 to 1847 the house of Beaumont belonged to the Marquis d’Aligre, one of the wealthiest men in France, who tripled the area under vine. In 1849 the estate passed into the hands of the Bonnin brothers, who built Château Beaumont in 1854 in a Renaissance mansard style."
