A brief history
Serious work has been carried out in the vineyard and in the winery to restore this historic property that was bought by our family in 2001. Situated on the eastern side of the appellation, its terroir provides beautiful, elegant Merlot, the favoured right-bank varietal.
It is said that this chateau was originally the den of an unmerciful warlord; he was named “Le Noir“ – The Black – due to his black armor and his tendency to attack after sunset. By day he lived there with his men, soldiers or winemakers… and by night he plotted with his thieves.
