Château La Bretonnière / Château Tour de Guiet Château Romfort
“Quality is never an accident.. It is always the result of intelligent effort” – John Ruskin, 1871
When I arrived in Bordeaux, I didn’t know much about wines, but I did know that I could make a success of it…Native of northern France and son of a crop farmer, I took over the estates Château La Bretonnière in Blaye – Côtes de Bordeaux and Château Tour De Guiet in Côtes de Bourg in 1992 at 25 years old. For twenty years, I planted high density vines and built a wine storehouse.
By being attentive to my terroir and strict in selecting the best grapes, surrounded by a top specialist (ex manager of a First Classified Growth of PAUILLAC – “1er Cru Classé”) since 2008, I produced Château La Bretonnière and Château Tour De Guiet that combine fruit, complexity, fineness, medium body and character.
Wines are made and bottled according to the moon. Independant wine producer, I guarantee you with the quality and the origin of my “terroir” wines. With a fresh outlook and generosity in my work, my ambitious approach paid off. Every year my wines get medals in the main contests and are reviewed in different magazines.
