CHÂTEAU LE GRAND MOULIN

I love wines for their delicacy and complexity, and I am passionate about the right bank of Bordeaux vineyard. In 1980, without hesitation, I proudly took over the estate my great-great-grand-father had created in 1904 : Château Le Grand Moulin. When I got the farm, the culture was not only vines and the vineyard was only 7 hectares. Therefore, I decided to give it its original purpose and reorganized it, modernized it and expanded it to reach 75 hectares of vines. Château Le Grand Moulin is a pillar among my three wineries and represents my family legacy that I am proud to share with my two daughters today : Carole and Pauline. The building was built at the beginning of the 20th century and follows the traditional Gironde region architecture. It has become our family vineyard’s symbol.
