I joined the family estate in 2008, founding EARL Vignobles Faytout to perpetuate the know-how built up by my family over five generations. The Château Puisseguin La Rigodrie vines were my grandmother’s, and those at La Tour d’Horable belonged to my grandfather, who came from a family of coopers. But the family tree doesn’t end there: the parents of some of my employees worked with my grandparents. A true family business! The wines we craft together are expressive and authentic, just like our soil and our winegrowers.

Château Puisseguin La Rigodrie
The juice is cold-racked. Temperatures are kept at 25°C during alcoholic fermentation with cap-punching for gentle extraction. Maceration for three weeks and running off. Aged in thermoregulated stainless steel vats.
The colour is incredibly intense due to slow, well-controlled extraction. The rich nose is followed by a palate that is nothing short of superlative: powerful, dense and well-balanced with great sweetness. A well-made wine from the vineyard to the bottle.
