Château Grand Village | Bordeaux, France
The Guinaudeau family has owned and lived in Château Grand Village since 1650. They cherish it every bit as much as they do Château Lafleur (their other estate) and the vineyards are worked by the same teams, with the same meticulous care and attention to detail that are seen in the great Pomerol vineyard.
The estate is situated in Mouillac on the far side of Fronsac and covers 50 hectares of vines. The soil is clay and chalk and the vines can be found on both the hillsides and plains of Bordeaux. The average age of the vines is 20 years old. Both a Bordeaux blanc and rouge are produced each year, classified as Bordeaux Supérieur. The grapes are carefully selected according to the quality of the harvest and any rejected fruit is sold off as generic Bordeaux.
