This chateau stands in the midst of the Albret region where the borders of the Landes and Gascony meet, an area renowned for its Buzet wines. Forming an enclosed and preserved property, it is near to the Bordeaux-Toulouse motorway, Agen TGV train station, with 190-minute links to Paris, and Agen airport, with its daily return flights to Orly.
The chateau and its wings
A stone porch way provides access to the entrance hall. A doorway adorned with a coat-of-arms opens into this large, through hall which leads to the reception rooms and opens, on the other side, on to the parklands and the vines. Flagstones cover the floor. The straight ceiling is centrally adorned with moulding, outlining a large oval. The walls, with their painted frescoes, reflect the countrified surroundings. A stone fountain enhances its Italian air. The hall marks the current division into two sections; one on the right-hand side used for accommodating guests and the other, on the left-hand side, used for private purposes.
The holiday rental accommodation unit by the pool
This unit adjoins the traditional Chartreuse house on the west side. It has a very well protected, 53 m² covered terrace, laid out in front of a large, rectangular swimming pool.
A vast, central kitchen (33 m²), featuring a rural fireplace with a small brick mantel, is separated from a lounge, spanning a similar floor surface area, by a half-timbered wall. Set back, a stairway, under which a toilet has been installed, goes upstairs to two bedrooms (27 and 30 m²) and a bathroom. A third bedroom (17 m²) one the ground floor, with a shower room, opens directly on to the pool-house.
The grounds set out around the chateau span approx. 49 ha, including 6.42 ha of AOC Buzet appellation vines, with predominantly argilo-calcareous soils. A completely separate vineyard in a neighbouring town increases the vine stock such that the total surface area producing AOC Buzet appellation wine is 14.7388 hectares:
Merlot: 7.0577 ha.
Gros Manseng: 0.1510 ha.
Sauvignon: 0.8855 ha.
Cabernet Sauvignon: 3.8219 ha.
Cabernet Franc: 2.8227 ha.
Some 110,000 bottles
Approx. 850 hectolitres (an average of 58 hl per ha)
40% AOC red Buzet wine,
39% rosé Buzet wine,
and 21% red Buzet wine.
NUMBER OF VINE STOCK PER HECTARE:
5,000 stock as of 2002 (4,000 stock prior to this time).
The entire grape harvest is sold to the wine co-operative where the wine is produced and marketed, labelled under a brand name, registered with INPI, the French National Institute of Industrial Property. This brand name belongs to the vineyard and is currently used by the wine co-operative.
The price per bottle from the wine co-operative is around €7 including VAT.
The sometimes eventful past of the region has left intact this chateau’s noble architecture which is neither overwhelming nor meagre. The regular layout of the buildings around the vast courtyard reflects balance and harmony. The decorative features are sound inside and outside alike. New owners can confidently continue the wine-growing activity. They will be greatly tempted to recreate, with a wine storehouse, the autonomy of a production that could proudly include AOC Buzet wine. The quality of the stone and that of the vine as well as the size of the reception areas fully justify an activity involving wine tourism based in a family residence of high standing.
