The best-known and longest-established Pécharmant property. Xavier de Saint-Exupéry, currently in charge here, is distantly related to the famous aviator as well as to former owner of Château d’Yquem. A beautiful long low château set in a large park makes this a must to visit. Almost exclusively a red wine estate, producing wine in the gutsy, minerally Pécharmant style.
