Chateau Tessonniere, Medoc - Bordeaux 

Chateau Tessonniere

In 1905 the Chevreux family from Saint-Aubin-de-Blaye purchased vineyards in the small towns of Bégadan and Civrac. The next four generations have been carefully adding to this holding. All the parcels are located on calcareous clay, which thrives with sunny conditions and in turn helps the proper maturation of the grape. The choice of the blends was also judicious and has allowed to embrace the stylistic tradition of Medoc: generous structure and supple texture with great aging potential.
