A brief history

"Château Haut Gros Caillou is located in Saint-Sulpice-de-Faleyrens, to the south of Saint- Emilion, in the immediate vicinity of such prestigious Crus as Château Monbousquet. In 1991, the property was acquired by Alain Thiénot, in a joint venture with James François, with the aim of extending the existing range of wines to include some of the noblest Bordeaux appellations. 2007 marked a fundamental step in this quest for quality, when Dourthe became part of the Thiénot Group. The valued expert input from the Dourthe team was asked to intervene both in the vineyard and winery. Today, the team plays a vital role in ensuring Saint-Emilion Grand Cru status across the entire portfolio of wines." Patrick Jestin
