Real craftsmanship is accomplished in this tiny vineyard... Step by step, on this unique terroir, is it possible to produce a wine of truly rare power and generosity ? Each new vintage delivers a great classic.
The vineyard of Château Bel-Air Ortet, situated up against the village of Saint-Estephe, benefits from an essentially gravely and remarkably well-drained sub-soil. Its wines with their deep tannins are full-bodied and harmonious. As with all the truly great wines from Saint-Estèphe, a few years in the cellar will enhance all their outstanding qualities.
A great, yet modest terroir!
When Marcel Quancard bought it from an ageing winegrower in 1978, he painstakingly pieced the vineyard back together, taking care to preserve the true spirit of the land and its wine. 12 km north of Saint-Emilion, Château Bonfort has become a small 4-hectare haven for the appellation’s hallmarks, concentrating the flavours so typical of the Saint-Emilion area.
Here lie the Quancard family roots. Many of the chateau’s vines share the same destiny as Terrefort.
They overlook the Dordogne, a river flowing with hopes and expectations, many of which are reflected here in this beautiful wine, born from a passion for the terroir and its history.
Straddling the 45th parallel, the vines of the château benefit from a microclimate that is ideal for winegrowing: moderately warm, humid, masses of sunshine and mild winters.
The magic of a terroir can inspire the finest chemistry. At Château Cossieu-Coutelin, the wine and the “murrain” oak merge exquisitely, creating perfect harmony.

The Château’s vineyard overlooks the village of Cissac-Médoc, between Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac.

There are places tinged with poetic charm, where vineyards nestle in the cheerful rolling countryside.
Château des Lannes has such charm, producing lovely wines, year after year, that are endearing and reliable yet showing glimpses of real character.
Dating back to the 16th century, the Château owes its name to the neighbouring village of Paillet. The symbiosis is complete between a vineyard and its birthplace, giving extra feeling to a wine that remains elegant, subtle and refined throughout the years and always lives up to expectations. The Château de Paillet owes its name to the neighbouring village of Paillet. This very old vineyard was bought in the 18th century by Squire d'Alphonse, canon of the church of Bordeaux. It was subsequently handed down to Adélaïde de Bacalan, to the knight J.-B. d'Alphonse, Counsellor with the Bordeaux Parliament, and to the Countess of Vassan. In the 19th century, it was one of the properties of the Fery-d'Esclands family.It was bought by Marcel and Christian Quancard in 1970.

Built in the 16th century, the destiny of its land has also been deeply marked by an invisible line, precious to all the vineyards of the world that it crosses and transcends: the 45th parallel. The chateau’s vines benefit from a microclimate that is ideal for winegrowing: moderately warm, humid, masses of sunshine and mild winters.
Founded at the turn of the 20th century, this estate, which was then called Cru Latour Saint-Joseph, quickly proved its worth by gaining the status of “Château” as well as great renown within the village of Cissac-Médoc.
The utmost care, including ageing in new oak barrels, is lavished on this prestigious wine which rubs shoulders with the equally famous vineyards of Saint-Estèphe and Pauillac.
This Château is an invitation to travel through time. In the 12th century, the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem established a hospice here to care for crusaders and pilgrims. Cabernet-Sauvignon vines were planted on the estate to provide wine for mass.
Time is still a willing accomplice today, allowing the wine to fully develop elegance and body.
