Moncets & Chambrun

Château Moncets –
AOC Lalande de Pomerol

Created in 1770, the Château Moncets estate is our oldest vineyard and bears the name of the Général de Moncets who bought it in 1872. Repurchased many years later in 2012 by a French family-owned company, the vines and cellars have since been fully renovated and rehabilitated in order to sustain the estate and thus integrate into it a second vineyardChâteau de Chambrun.

 

The production of Chateau Moncets has evolved through a more elaborated and refined winemaking process, enhanced further by its newly design bottle label.

Château de Chambrun –
AOC Lalande de Pomerol

The Chateau Chambrun property was established between the World Wars by the Cholet family when it was known as “Clos de Chambrun”, a name originating from one of the plots called “Champ Brun” or “Brown Field” in English. The This property belonged to Jean-Philippe Janoueix until 2007, then to Silvio Denz until 2015.

 

It is now our flagship vineyards and represents a new generation of winegrowing at our estates, in turn having provided remarkable benefits since its revitalisation in 2015. We have also preserved for the Chambrun and Moncets label design the Templars’ Cross, the historic symbol of the Pomerol appellations.

 

As of 2019 the total area of Chateau de Chambrun has been 13.80 hectares

The Revival

Over the last few years, Bordeaux and its environs have entered a new era of success both economically and in tourism and Chateau de Chambrun looks to harness this new, regional impetus through the development and realisation of its own potential. It is our intention to establish Chambrun as being the diversification of tourist activities at our vineyard and to offer our visitors a truly unique experience.

 

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”) having been applied to our vineyards over the last several years, we are in the process of gaining organic farming certification.

Indeed, the conversion of a Bordelais vineyard into organic production takes time, much energy and plenty of determination, with our vineyards' transition enduring 3 years of strict application of the “AB” rules.

This was a decision we took earlier this year, one eventually following 2012's comprehensive vineyard and cellar restructuring, the result of which being that our young and dynamic team can now work in a very respectful and generous environment - one that has already given us so much. In this way, we can guarantee a better future for our centuries-old vineyards.

Also included in this environmental approach is the creation of a pond on the northern part of the castle’s gardens for the purpose of increasing the biodiversity of the area’s flora and fauna.  Thanks to this water resource, we were able establish an independent ecosystem. .
