Château Pilet is a family property perched on the slopes of the Garonne with very different soils. On the upper hills we have sandy-gravelly soils where we adapt Cabernets Sauvignon, which gives us wines very rich in materials with optimal maturity. On the hillsides, we find very clayey soils, so we have installed Merlot grapes that give us very fine and fruity wines. And finally, in the bottoms, we find Sauvignons blanc which produce very mineral wines. We also have on the heights of the Semillon, a white grape variety that we forget a little too much but which gives us very fat and tense wines. Our soils are tilled every other row, which allows them to be aerated and promotes the life of the biomass.
It was in 1964 that Jean and Yvette Queyrens bought their first parcel of vines called "Pilet", so that's where the name of our Château comes from. Following this acquisition, they took over the properties of their respective parents to reach about thirty hectares in the 1980s. At the end of the 80s Christophe and Patrick, two of the three children returned to the estate after studying the vine and wine, which enabled them to considerably develop farming methods such as adapting the grape varieties to the typical characteristics of the soil; but also to better control the vinification of the wines and optimise their quality to the maximum. In 2012, it is Jean-Yves' turn, one of the grandchildren, to return to the estate after studying wine and working in several countries to learn about new winemaking methods and discover other grape varieties.
What I am passionate about wine is the ability it has to bring together. When you open a good bottle, you immediately become in a good mood. Wine affects all social categories without exception, it is unifying in a world that is divided.
Wine is much more than a drink, it makes us all smile. This is our greatest satisfaction after all, to give people joy. Stay much longer on the people of the vineyard, they are passionate and exciting!
