When Baron Maurice Velge bought Château Clauzet and Château de Côme in 1997, his approach was much more like the fulfilment of an old love-affaire more, than an investment, he started hiring José Bueno for the wine making. After 23 years spent with Baron Philippe de Rothschild, José went to Clauzet.

"I learned most of what I know at Mouton-Rothschild, where I helped to make several vintages and later as cellar master at Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armaillac... Mouton is one of the best schools there is for learning every aspect of quality, down to the finest detail. I am familiar with all the techniques used to make a first growth and was immediately attracted by the challenge at Château Clauzet, which has a superb terroir". With a smile, José Bueno explains that "everything we do at Château Clauzet is on a par with any of the first growths".

Together they attracted a wonderful team: cellar-master, skilled and devoted people for land, for sells, for logistics, administration, etc...

I am familiar with all the specialised techniques to make a first growth and was attracted by the challenge at Château de Côme, as well as its superb terroir. My responsibilities cover both the vineyard and the wine".

Since 2008, Eric Boissenot, the oenologist for several first and second growths,and one of the finest connoisseurs and blenders in the Médoc, has been a consultant for Château Clauzet.
