Pierre Colbert has been at the head of the vineyard for about ten years. Trained as an engineer and heir to the estate's winemaking traditions, he has been able to bring the technical progress and know-how that enable the estate to produce wines that are increasingly faithful to their terroir. The estate is located on the terroir of "La Méjanelle" in the climatic zone of the "Grés de Montpellier". The soil is mainly composed of terraces of rolled pebbles, relics of the Rhone delta. The Mediterranean balance, with a strong marine influence, allows the cultivation of various grape varieties. Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Merlot, Marselan, Rolle, Viognier and Muscat enhance the gardens of Château de Flaugergues. Today 8 fresh vintages by the early maturity of the grapes will delight you with their silky tannins and subtle fruit aromas.
The recent cellar, allows us to control the quality of the wines and to reveal even better their typicity. Thanks in particular to its 26 stainless steel vats, the vinification can be carried out with great finesse per plot before blending and maturing. Since 2015, the vineyard is led in environmental agriculture, through a collective certification ISO 14001, via the association Terr'Avenir Languedoc Roussillon, guaranteeing an efficient and ecological management of the company, through a continuous improvement process. More recently, since 2019, the property has also been certified HVE (High Environmental Value) and Terra Vitis, certifying the eco-responsible commitment to sustainable viticulture.

Our story

The Château de Flaugergues, a marvellous 18th century folly, was acquired in 1696 as a "Maison des Champs" and is today an island of greenery in the city of Montpellier. This former Tuscan-style yachting residence has been able to keep its wine-producing activity, its sumptuous gardens, which have been awarded a remarkable label and thus a whole harmonious universe, rewarded with a 2nd star in the Michelin Green Guide in 2016. A delicate balance protected for 33 years by its full classification as a Historic Monument. The Colbert family has been winemakers and hosts for 323 years. Henri and Brigitte, pioneers of this revival since 1972, later joined by Pierre and Marie, open the doors of this Montpellier madness to visitors from all parts of France and the world. An active hive of 25 people in the service of the good and the beautiful.
