This Chateau has been family owned and making wine for almost 500 years. The clayey flint soils give an intensity to the 30 year old vines, as well as an elegance. They are focussed upon promoting organic life in the soils and following sustainable practises which ultimately reduce the use of chemicals and promote healthy, aromatic and balanced grapes.
