Château de Francs Les Cerisiers 2012

The birthplace of the Ségur family, Château de Francs was an important stronghold under English occupation before it was converted into a residence. It overlooks the surrounding countryside and still has remains that date back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Set up on one of the highest hillsides in the Gironde, it belongs to the Côte de Francs appellation, the smallest in the Bordeaux region. The vineyard is made up of old, low-yield red and white vines and has excellent soils. In 1985 two friends, Dominique Hébrard, former owner of Château Cheval Blanc, and Hubert de Bouard, oenologist and co-owner of Château Angelus, got together to take over this estate. With passion and enthusiasm, they oversee the destiny of this wine and strive to bring it up to its best possible standard.
