Company data

Amid our 23-acre estate Château les Bouzigues a more than 350 years old stone house is situated, whose premises are ideal for producing great red wines.
For the storage of our wines, we have built an underground cellar with about 1,200 square meter in order to create perfect conditions for maturing the wine in barrels and bottles.
Our Château les Bouzigues is located about 35 miles south of St. Emilion and 30 km east of Sauternes in the southernmost part of Bordeaux. The floors are similar to those in the south side of St. Emilion (Château Pavie, Canon la Gaffeliere, Ausone, ...). With extremely low yield, 27 - 40 hectolitres per hectare and 5,000 vines per hectare, we are able to produce absolute top-quality Bordeaux wines with unbeatable favourable prices, because we do not have the cost structures of the prestigious regions of Bordeaux.
For nearly 20 years it is our desire to create best quality by craftsmanship and natural method and traditionally long aging of wines in barrels.
The wines of Château les Bouzigues are very mild with a lot of strength and elegance.
The storage potential of up to 30 years is enormous, even for Bordeaux!
