This « cuvée confidentielle » carries the signature of three wine-loving friends wanting to make their common dream come true: share their love for wine and undergo the adventure together.
The idea of Château La Connivence came up during a dinner among friends. The basic idea was “not to make a good but a great wine”. The word “connivence” implies the unique friendship that unites the four owners.
Alexandre de Malet Roquefort already owns several châteaux (La Gaffelière, 1er Grand Cru Classé de Saint Emilion, Tertre Daugay, Grand Cru Classé de Saint Emilion, Armens, Saint Emilion Grand Cru, Chapelle Maracan, Bordeaux Supérieur) and contributes by means of his experience and his knowledge in viticulture.
Tthe two football stars Matthieu Chalmé from Bordeaux’ football club Girondins de Bordeaux and Johan Micoud, who has already played abroad, add their enthusiasm and the new vision of the world of wine.
Matthieu Chalmé, Alexandre de Malet and Johan Micoud searched during two years until they finally found the vineyard for Château La Connivence, on which they wanted to plant their Grand Cru de Pomerol.
