Laplace – a family firmly rooted in the Madiran terroir! Three generations have succeeded at Chateau d’Aydie since 1927. In the 1930’s, Frédéric Laplace was the first in the area to focus on viticulture in a countryside where mixed farming was very much the norm. In 1952, his son Pierre took over, continued planting vines and improving the vineyard and was responsible for the first estate-bottled wine at Chateau d’Aydie. In the 1970’s his 4 children – Marie, Bernard, François & Jean-Luc – got involved in the running of the estate and took an interest in high density planting, research and the evolution of the Tannat grape. With them at the helm, the estate has imposed itself as a leader in the Madiran appellation.
