A brief history
"La Pelouse? What a funny name for a winery!"
Quite simply, because it was the name of the hamlet next door to the chateau where the first plot of the vineyard was planted.
"We can attest that it is one of the longest-standing in the area and its products contributed substantially in the past to building the reputation in France and abroad of Médoc wines. When sent to England at the end of the 17th century, they commanded a price of 400 French pounds for a 900-litre barrel and more."
