Moncets & Chambrun

Château Moncets –
AOC Lalande de Pomerol

The Château Moncets estate is our oldest vineyard. Created in 1770, it bears the name of the Général de Moncets who purchased it in 1872. Bought in 2012 by a french family company, the vines and cellars have been totally rehabilitated in order to sustain the vineyard and to integrate in 2015 a second vineyard the « Château de Chambrun ».

 

The production of Chateau Moncets has evolved with a new design label and with more elaborated winemaking process.

Château de Chambrun –
AOC Lalande de Pomerol

The property of Chambrun has been created between the 2 world wars by the Cholet family. It was known as “Clos de Chambrun”. The name “Chambrun” would come from one of the plots called “Champ Brun” or “Dark Field” in English. The This property belonged to Jean-Philippe Janoueix until 2007, then to Silvio Denz until 2015.

 

It is now the spearhead of our vineyards and represents the new generation of wine from our estates. As of 2015, this wine will benefit from a completely adapted winegrowing direction. We have preserved the original wine label with the Templars’ Cross, the historic symbol of the Pomerol appellations.

 

In 2019, the Chateau de Chambrun superficies is 13.80 hectares

The Revival

In a few short years, the Bordeaux region has reached a new touristic and economically rich era. We wish to associate this new regional impetus with the potential of the Château de Chambrun to be counted among the best references of the “Right Bank”. 

 

Our team has a mission to accompany the Vignobles Moncets et Chambrun in this evolution. We will diversify the tourism activity of the vineyard to offer you a unique experience during your tours in our vineyards.

Organic Winegrowing

In addition to the integrated viticulture, or “lutte raisonnée”, applied to our vineyards since several years, we are in the process of organic farming.

To convert a Bordeaux vineyard into the organic production it takes time, a lot of energy and plenty of determination. The transition left 3 years during which we strictly apply the “AB” rules.

We took this decision earlier this year after having totally restructured the vineyard and the cellar since 2012. Our young and dynamic team works now in a very respectful environnement who has already given us so much. In this way, we guarantee a better future to our multy-century vineyard.

With this environmental approach, a pond has been created on the northern part of the Castle gardens. Our goal is to increase the biodiversity of the fauna and flora in the area thanks to this water source, thus creating an independant ecosystem.
