A brief history

Château La Confession’s seven and a half hectares (18.5 acres) of clay-limestone soils lie upon a fine slope. At harvest time, we appreciate the cool, calm mornings, the gentle rustling of the vines and the suspense of the winery. In winter, we allow ourselves to be drawn into the chateau’s fireplace by the smell of vine smoke infusing a fine rib of beef. Wreaths of blue holly decorate our white earthenware crockery, in harmony with the label of the bottle opened a little earlier to allow the wine to breathe. The Exposition Universelle of 1855 comes to mind as the crockery awaits the meal with impatience. La Confession reveals itself in all its soft elegance, savoured before a roaring fire.

Château La ConfessionChâteau Haut-Pontet

Château Haut Pontet is our second wine from the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation. Planted upon a small plot of land on the border with Pomerol, the soil is a mixture of clay, limestone and gravel. The wines are delicate and silky, providing the refinement accompany dishes such as fillet steak ‘Rossini’ with truffled foie gras. The unusually high Merlot blend gives the wine a real roundness and an aromatic palate offering an abundance of ripe red fruits.
