Our family property, Château Fleur Haut Gaussens, is located on the right bank of Bordeaux near Fronsac and has belonged to my family for more than four generations. With more than 100 years of experience between them, my parents Pierre and Nicole, bring day by day wise advice and perpetuate tradition and know-how while with a more visionary spirit, I bring originality and modernity. The result is an atypical range of wines, which goes beyond the beaten track and combines originality with personality, quality, precision and regularity.
Our story is an Earth story! It is a passion that is passed on from father to son, and is part of the vintages that are always guided by nature.
In the cellar we work in the traditional way, but with a modern vision. Château Fleur Haut Gaussens is one of the last Bordeaux Supérieur to make wines for ageing, like the Grands Crus. Thus our wine can evolve over time without losing its character. We are in favour of a fragmented, slow and gentle vinification that adapts to the vintage and is intended to be different depending on the vintage. Each plot is treated in separate vats to preserve the identity of the terroir and grape variety in the first instance.
Being a winegrower is more than a profession, it is a way of life. A know-how, knowledge, daily gestures, a way of thinking, a way of seeing things, that's all that we bottle. Each wine has its own identity and originality.
When I took over the queens of the family estate in the late 1990s, the trend was to produce wines in bulk. I was the first to bottle all my production and innovate with modern and timeless packaging. Even today I still recommend trends. Our Malbec cuvée "La Viminière" (released in September 2016) will be the first on the market of its kind! To be continued...
