Located in the commune of Laruscade, Château Camille Gaucheraud takes its name from our great-great-great-grandfather, a cooper by trade. Our vines are on a soil that combines gravel and clay for the red grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) and sands to concentrate the Sauvignon fruit. The average age of the vineyard is 25 years. Located on a hill surrounded by hills, the property benefits from a North/South and East/West exposure. The density is 4500 vines/hectare. Grassing is practiced throughout the vineyard and pruning is carried out in double Guyot with disbudding in the vine. Vine disease treatments are carried out using a technique known as "Reasoned Control", i.e. treating the vine in advance to reduce the dosage of products. We follow the old adage "Prevention is better than cure!". In addition, the property has been developing a sustainable development policy for several years now by being a member of the Bordeaux Wine Environmental Management System (SME) certified ISO 14001. It is a management tool for the company, aimed at continuously improving its environmental performance by questioning itself every year.

Our story

We found a book of account of Camille Gaucheraud, attesting that the domain has existed since at least 1880. There were only a few acres of land, a house. The vine, on the other hand, had been there much longer: since Antiquity! Once managed by our parents, the estate is purely family owned. It was first Benoît, the eldest, who wanted to contribute his part to the family building in 1999, to create his own range of wines under the name of Camille Gaucheraud. The family story continues in 2011 when the second brother, Freddy, joins the adventure in order to develop the farm's distribution network. We try to make wines that reflect us: authentic, friendly and balanced. They are made to be kept, and that's why we offer vintages that are becoming increasingly rare! Our wide range will satisfy the greatest number of people, with a special vintage recently made entirely by hand: Homage....

Other little stories

The wine that most resembles us? Maybe the 2011 Oak Barrel, because despite a difficult year, we managed to bring out something more than successful! Being a winegrower means trying to produce the best grapes according to what nature gives us and to make a wine that is as close as possible to our terroir.

In 2012, we forgot to harvest a row of white vines, when we had already started to harvest red. We thought we would save these few vines for a harvest in November, and why not make sweet liquor? The day before picking these famous grapes, a group of starlings had eaten 3/4 of the bunches... Like what, nature doesn't wait!
