The estate is located on a rare terroir: the tawny sands, renowned for the production of Armagnac. We are the first to produce wine there. Our vineyards cover 17 hectares on clay-luminous soils. Our vines are grown on two appellations: the Landes terroirs which constitute the identity of the wines and the Côtes de Gascogne.
The grape varieties used for the dry white wines are: colombard, ugni blanc, sauvignon blanc, sauvignon gris, gros manseng and chardonnay; for the sweet whites: petit manseng and gros manseng; for the rosé: cabernet franc; and for the reds: merlot, cabernet sauvignon and tannat. The estate works in close collaboration with other neighbouring estates.
The history of the estate began in 1820 when my ancestor Jean-Dominique decided to devote himself to producing Armagnac, which is when he acquired the château. The passion for Armagnac is passed on from generation to generation. It is in the 70's that my grandfather gives a new dimension by diversifying the production of 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 over two centuries ago. It was in 2007, at Christmas time, that my grandfather passed on the vineyard to me and my wife joined me two years later, seduced by the world of the estate. Our ambition is the same: to continue the business by paying tribute to our ancestors while bringing our own touch of youth. I take care of the vineyard and the cellar and Julie shapes the image and identity of the estate.
Our personalities and characters are very different but complementary. We form a well-balanced and complementary tandem. Together, no obstacle stops us. The proof! We produce wine on land destined for Armagnac.
