The old chateau remained the property of the family but due to its state of ruin, it was demolished in 1852.
The construction of the present chateau in 1853 on the site of the original chateau is thanks to Marquis Lodoïs Le Blanc de Mauvesin and his wife. On the advice of the architect Perrier and inspired by the style of Louis XIII, the chateau consists of “two pavilions and two turrets, combining elegance and solidity. The façade was upon a magnificent garden with a pond and a beautiful collection of conifers. ”
After 2 years labour the chateau remains as it was when constructed in 1853 and the trees planted at the creation of the park constitute this timeless home.
The property covers 220 hectares all in one piece including 51 hectares of vineyards.
Sustained purple color. Nose of red fruits, cherry, currant which harmoniously blends with toasted notes. Ample and well balanced wine on the palate with soft tannins and integrated oak.
