Château Pouyau de Boisset

I settled at Pouyau de Boisset in 2002 with my husband. I’m very proud to have taken on this estate, which since its foundation has been passed down from woman to woman, and which is charged with history. Pouyau de Boisset belonged to the Maison Forte de Boisset, a fortified manor house built in the 15th century, which even appeared in the Cocks & Féret wine directory as a Premier Cru Bourgeois.

Le Pouyau means “the height”, and the estate does indeed lie on a hillside.
