Châteaux Moncets & Chambrun

Nestled in the heart of Lalande de Pomerol, Château Moncets and Château de Chambrun stand as shining examples of tradition, sustainability, and innovation. This ambitious estate is driven by a passion for a refreshingly contemporary, terroir-focused style of Right Bank Bordeaux.

Winery History
The storied Château Moncets estate dates back to 1770, later purchased by General de Moncets in 1872. In 2012, a young French family from Brittany acquired the estate and embarked on a journey to revive the vines and cellars. Their vision included the integration of Château de Chambrun, establishing a mission to create one of the finest estates in Lalande de Pomerol.

Viticulture/Winemaking Style
Sustainability is at the heart of Château Moncets & Château de Chambrun. By adopting modern techniques like earthing/unearthing, green manuring, and hand harvesting, the estate produces exceptional wines while minimizing its environmental impact. With the help of a gravity flow cellar, unsulfured winemaking, and integral vinification, renowned oenologists Michel Rolland and Thomas Duclos bring their expertise to create wines with character and finesse.

Grape Varieties
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
