Château Lafleur Tapon

In 1999, after business studies in Kedge business school and a course at the Bordeaux Faculty of Oenology, I naturally found my place in the family estate led in organic farming since the beginning by my parents Raymond and Dédée Tapon. In 2001, ma husband Jean-Christophe Renaut joined me in the vineyard leaving his parisian sommelier job. We work with 35 hectares of vines today, located in the terroirs of Saint-Emilion for Château Lafleur Tapon, Montagne Saint-Emilion for Château Barrail Tapon, Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion and Lalande de Pomerol. Since 2011 and 2012, our wines are certified organic farming by the Ecocert organization. We strive to maintain our vineyard in an natural environment : between earth, animals and stars.

Vignobles Gabriel & Co can be our common last name.
