This is one of the biggest and oldest wineries in the region. It’s been around for nine generations and has the French Revolution to thank for most of its holdings since that’s when most of the clergy’s land was confiscated and put up for sale.

Today the estate owns 130 hectares of vines, of which 12 are Grand Cru and 74 are Premier Cru.
