Corentin Chambre

Winemaker and Vineyard Manager at Château de Barbe Blanche

Corentin was born in Bordeaux in 1987. Passionate about chemistry from an early age, he studied for a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry at the University of Bordeaux. After spending his childhood and teenage years on the Atlantic coast at Lège-Cap-Ferret, far away from the vineyards, he then came to discover the world of wine thanks to people he met and tastings with friends.

In keeping with his new-found passion, he enrolled in a Master's course in Viticulture and Oenology at the Institute of Vine and Wine Sciences, graduating in 2011.

As part of his degree, he undertook a six-month internship at the Vignobles André Lurton estates located in Pessac-Léognan. There, he started working on a tool, known as Optidose, to dramatically reduce the use of plant protection products. He then helped make red and white wines at Château la Louvière, before being introduced to the role of assistant cellarmaster at Château Latour-Camblanes, in the Cadillac-Côtes-de-Bordeaux appellation.

Job and know-how

In 2015, he began working as a cellarmaster at Château Mirefleurs, a small estate in Yvrac that taught him the ropes of winegrowing. Four years later, on the 1st of February 2019, he returned to Vignobles André Lurton as operations manager at Château de Barbe Blanche.

Born and bred in Arcachon Bay, he is very concerned about climate change and is highly involved in Château de Barbe Blanche's environmental strategy. Working both as a cellarmaster and vineyard manager at this estate made him even more aware of the importance of vineyard practices.

For Corentin, Bordeaux wines represent an outstanding heritage, which should be continuously protected and improved, through teamwork, sharing experiences, curiosity, and most of all, respect for the environment.
