Product Description:

"Located in Bordeaux’s Entre-Deux-Mers region, this was one of France’s pioneering organic wine estates. It became organic in 1964 under Paul Bouron who had been diagnosed with tuberculosis and, despite being given all requisite medical treatments, had been told by the hospital doctors he was going to die. Paul stopped using conventional treatments on the family’s vines, cereal crops and herd of beef cattle, adopted the Lemaire-Boucher form of organic farming and, in 1964, became one of the founders of Nature et Progrès (the first association of consumers and producers actively promoting the development of organic and bio-dynamic practices). His son Daniel ran the domaine until his death in 2014. The Bouron family then sold Château de Chavrignac to Gérard Lobre whose family has been involved in wine in the region since 1734.

Today, the domaine has 32 hectares of vines between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, 60 kms from the town of Bordeaux. They have 28 ha of red varietals planted in Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot; and 4 hectares of white wine grapes planted in Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sauvignon Gris." -Importer
