The estate is located on a rare terroir: the tawny sands, famous for the production of Armagnac. We are the first to produce wine there. Our vines cover 17 hectares on clay and light soils. Our vines are grown in two appellations: the Landes terroirs which constitute the identity of the wines and the Côtes de Gascogne.
The grape varieties worked on are for dry white wines: colombard, ugni blanc, sauvignon blanc, sauvignon gris, gros manseng, chardonnay; for sweet whites: petit manseng and gros manseng; for rosé: cabernet franc; and for red: merlot, cabernet sauvignon and tannat. The field works closely with other neighbouring fields.
The history of the estate began in 1820 when my ancestor Jean-Dominique decided to devote himself to producing Armagnac, and it was then that he acquired the château. Quickly renamed and exported to New York, the passion for Armagnac is passed on from generation to generation. It was in the 1970s that my grandfather gave a new dimension by diversifying the production from Armagnac to wine.
Having grown up in the heart of the estate's vineyards, I am the 8th generation to continue the history of the estate, which began more than two centuries ago. It was in 2007, at Christmas time, that my grandfather handed over the vineyard to me and my wife joined me 2 years later, seduced by the world of the estate. Our ambition is the same, to continue the activity by paying tribute to our ancestors while bringing our youthful touch. I take care of the vineyard and the cellar and Julie shapes the image and identity of the estate.
With very different but complementary personalities and characters, we form a tandem of shock, balanced and complementary. Together: no obstacle stops us. The proof! We produce wine on land intended for Armagnac.
