History of the vineyard
The “Bureau” is one of the Château's historical parcels. It was planted in 1957, just after the terrible frost of February 1956 that decimated all of Bordeaux's vineyards. Its old vines are used as a base for the nursery that gives birth to the vineyard's young plants. It has a 360° view of Néac and the great Châteaux of Pomerol.

Émeric, the winemaker
Continuing the winemaking their father passed on to them, Émeric and his younger brother Marc work to preserve family traditions while bringing a fresh, new look to viticulture. Visitors can admire the breath-taking view from the top of the vineyard. Those who are lucky will also enjoy the warm welcome from his wife Virginie while staying in the Château.
