Château de Respide is a Graves estate that has a long and illustrious history. It is located in the commune of Langon and is most renowned for the quality of its reds although its white wine is equally distinguished. The handsome château is set in a beautiful wooded park and was once home to one of Louis X1V’s ministers.

The painter Toulouse - Lautrec was a frequent visitor at Château de Respide and painted several portraits of his cousin Louis Pascal while drinking these delicious white wines and enjoying this classic property in the Graves region.
