Emerging from the Hundred Years’ War, the Montferrand families acquired Renaissance associations, experienced internal divisions during the Reformation, generated Bordeaux’s only saint, and came up to the Revolution with the usual noble financial challenges. Deeply opposed to the Revolution, they suffered confiscation and parcellization and barely held onto any property at all. The core estate of the Chateau de Landiras finds its modern renown in its fine grave wines.
